The Golden Globes Will Not Broadcast On Television Next Year

The Golden Globes are an annual award ceremony that applauds television and films with categories like Best Picture, Best Actor/Actress, Best Song Motion Picture, etc.

NBC has decided to cancel next year's broadcast based on last year's criticism of the 87 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and their lack of diversity. These members are the ones who vote on who wins an award, none of which were black at the time.

"We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform," NBCUniversal said. "However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right. As such, NBC will not air the 2022 Golden Globes."

Since being called out by Tiny Fey, Amy Poehler, and Sacha Baron Cohen during their February broadcast for not having a single black member, they have added 21 new members (nearly 30 percent were Black journalists) and have also banned members from accepting gifts of any kind from studios, filmmakers or actors.

They still plan to award creatives in 2022, though they have not confirmed how just yet.
