Film: What exactly is a Comedy/Musical vs. Drama?
Regarding what’s a drama and what is a musical or comedy, the HFPA said: “Motion pictures shall be entered in the category that best matches the overall tone and content of the motion Thus, for example, dramas with comedic overtones should be entered as dramas.” As for musicals, they are defined as “a comedy or a drama in which songs are used in addition to spoken dialogue to further the plot.”
Also new for 2017: During the period from the announcement of the nominations until the final Golden Globe ballots are submitted, HFPA members “should not be invited to and must not attend events (including parties, receptions, lunches and dinners and similar events) at which Golden Globe award nominees are present. HFPA members may continue to attend screenings and press conferences available to comparable members of the media at which nominees are present, but may not solicit individual press opportunities with nominees during this period.”
Sounds like they want to be taken seriously for once and eliminate the preception of bias or bribes.
Too bad they can’t undo earlier award shows an actor or a film committed category fraud.
