Hollywood’s Biggest Night To Private Award Ceremony: All You Need To Know About the 79th Golden Globes

New Delhi: After months of criticism from movie stars and Hollywood insiders, the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced the winners of 2022 Golden Globes on Sunday night, January 9. The award ceremony took place as a private event this year with no live-streaming and winners being announced on the Golden Globes website and its social media handles.

The award ceremony, which was condemned for its lack of diversity by actors and alleged corruption, was called off last year in an astonishing downgrade after The Los Angeles Times and New York Times revealed the ethical lapses within the HFPA and a membership devoid of Black voters.

Since the dishonour to one of the biggest awards shows in Hollywood came to light, it will be interesting to see if the actors and others would accept the ceremony and awards, or will ignore them.

What was the controversy?

The Golden Globes has been one of Hollywood’s biggest nights since 1944, but NBC on May 10, 2021 publicly announced that they will not air the 2022 Golden Globe Awards. The announcement obviously made the headlines, but to much of everyone’s curiosity the question remained, what made the broadcast network took this decision to call off the streaming of one of the biggest award ceremonies of world’s largest film industry?

The non-profit organisation, Hollywood Foreign Press Association since its formation comprises of 90 members from 55 countries which involves the presence of multiple journalists and photographers who report on the entertainment industry. But last year, the organisation faced a massive backlash for its alleged lack of diversity within its membership and shadowy workings.

In February 2021, it was reported that HFPA has no black member among the organisation’s 87 members who vote. All the members were believed to be journalists based in Los Angeles, who worked for big media outlets in US.

Citing the discrimination, the award ceremony second only to the Oscars in terms of the profile was heavily criticised including actor Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and many more. Tom Cruise even returned his three Golden Globes in protest. Netflix and Amazon studios also in their bid to mark their protest said that they would stop doing business with the HFPA until it goes further with its reform plans.

HFPA’s take on private ceremony:

While NCB has clearly and straightforwardly announced the reason behind them pulling the show from television, HFPA has said that the reason behind conducting a private ceremony for 2022 to prevent the spread COVID-19.

However, the HFPA released a statement last year and said that it was working to reform itself with “extreme urgency” and even offered a timeline for changes. In fact, in October 2021, the organisation added atleast 21 journalists to its ranks, of which 29 per cent members were identified as Black.
