    I know there is currently a boycott on the GG Awards and HFPA in affect and that the 2022 GG’s will not be televised, do you guys think this means that the GG awards are dead and buried for good or is there a chance that the HFPA will make significant changes to increase representation and that the GG’s awards will live to see another day?

    They’ll survive, the biggest problem they had was the limited amount of people who were part of the HFPA and the lack of diversity among them. if they can increase their number of voters, diversify them, and hopefully get to at least 150 people voting, they’ll be good.

    Also did anyone realise that the HFPA’s member diversity is now better than the Academy’s?

    Academy (what we know)
    70% Male
    84% White

    New HFPA
    48% identify as women
    29% identify as Black
    24% identify as Asian
    29% identify as Latinx
    19% identify as Middle Eastern/North African

    True, but they are still doing a better “diversifying” job than the Academy

    Yes. So of course it’s harder for the Academy to reform. But equally these figures make it very difficult for anyone to suggest anymore that the HFPA is not diverse when it both clearly is and is more so than the awards which are held most highly.

    It is very unfair to bury such a great award as the Golden Globe over one scandal, albeit a big one. This award is over 70 years old, it’s just incredible. And you want to destroy such an award that has seen so much over the years, experienced so many tragedies, but still continued to illuminate the world of cinema? That sounds absurd! The Golden Globe is not just a film award, it is a whole history.

    And their shows are always so interesting to watch. Far more interesting and glamorous than the Oscars

    Now that HFPA is numerically diverse Hollywood can come back to money laundry schemes, awards bribery and privileged distribution with them, CC and other shows. Back to regular programming 🥰

    Btw, she’s a brazillian member at HFPA and said they have good news. Perhaps they found a broadcast or a livestream? We might find out soon.

    Unpopular opinion (maybe), but I hope they come back for the televised cerimony alone. The institution is bullshit, but those were the most entertaining awards shows. And yes, they were/are important for the season and the campaigns.

    Even this year, I bet there will be posters with “Golden Globe winner” and “Golden Globe nominee” for those who win and get nominated. Maybe not for the FYC industry adds, but certainly in ads for audiences.

    Apart from people like us, who watch these things closely, people from the outside still think the Globes are a big deal.

    Diversity was not their only problem. There were also many allegations of corruption

    Hollywood is full with hipocrits, they are the ones who allowed HFPA to be corruptive all this time, the studios could had called them out before (publicly) and not wait for some reporter to do their job, and now they are acting like victims, this “poor Hollywood who were obliged by the evil HFPA to pay for bribes” is hilarious, they had no problem playing the game by the HFPA rules as long as they were getting nominations, they are responsible for the mess not only the HFPA.

    The thing Hollywood benefits from GG’s corruption and it’s also done with other award shows, so they pretend their problems is only diversity. And that might be the lesser of their problems.

    I can’t stand left wing Hollywood politics and racial bollocks that I started to feel bad for one of the most corrupt organisations in the town.

    The only morality in a cruel world is chance.

    I am looking forward to the Golden Globes. Its normally a good laugh hopefully they’ve fixed enough of their issues to make it televised again at least going forward if not this year. But yeah I think how easy they could be bought for votes is their biggest issue.

    How many times are the Golden Globes going to be thrown off network TV for justifiable reasons before we accept this is a bullshit award? A fun show, but a bullshit award? They’ve always had questionable ethics and a lot of Hollywood is being a hypocrite here (HFPA wasn’t bribing itself.), but let’s be honest no one knows who is in this group or why they matter or what their qualifications even are to be influencers and taste makers.
