In the year that marks the 80th anniversary of the award’s origin, the Golden Globes will once again be broadcast on TV on January 10, 2023. The broadcast will be carried out by the NBC network, live and directly from Los Angeles. The ceremony, absent in the last 18 months due to corruption and racism scandals, had to undergo an internal reorganization to regain lost credibility.
The boycott of the Golden Globes stemmed from complaints made by the Los Angeles Times. Prior to the 2021 broadcast, the paper reported that none of the 87 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) were black. In addition, it was found that several of them received privileges, such as gifts and stays in luxury hotels, in exchange for nominations of titles.
In light of this, the HFPA underwent a revamp and renewed committee membership, in addition to promoting reforms to prevent further unethical behavior. The association itself also reported that the new voting body is 52% female, 19.5% Latino, 12.5% Asian, 10% black and 10% Middle Eastern.
In an attempt to restore the credibility lost in recent years, the Golden Globes will once again be broadcast by the same American broadcaster that covered the event, NBC. In Brazil, TNT was responsible for broadcasting the awards, but it is not yet known if it will broadcast them again. In the last edition, the winners were announced via social networks.
