    They were basically banished from network TV for most of the 80s and 90s, too many times when the award was thought to have been bought especially when a nobody named Pia Zadora had her husband wined and dined the members at his Las Vegas Hotel and then she was named new star of the year for some soft core porn type film beating out Kathleen Turner and Elizabeth McGovern.

    There was a really good documentary a few years ago about all their scandals. I’ve never been able to find it online. NBC must have had it scrubbed.

    The documentary is Golden Globes : Hollywood’s dirty little secret, I’ve seen it back then on TV, 2003 I think.

    They should redo the entire membership from a bunch of elitist nobodies with no idea of journalism or films to an actual voting body of respected journalists from all over the world. More diverse and a lot more members than 89 or whatever joke number they are rn.
    The current membership is way too easily buyable there is no other reason why „Music“ would show up lmao.

    The show itself is pretty fun with the right host and as someone previously said I like their split of musical/comedy and drama even though some of the placements are… odd to say the least.

    They are worse than nobodies having a wank. They are corrupt, unethical and probably criminal nobodies having a wank. The whole thing needs to be shut down. But it won’t be; the studios love it.

    If Kim Kardashian or Kris Jenner started writing about films and applied to become HFPA members there is a good chance they would get in over more respectable journalists. It will survive obviously but they need to expel their member and get actual critics and not socialites

    I agree the comedy/drama division actually puts the spotlight on more releases per year than by other award bodies and you have a nice history of comedy nominees.

    Satellite would gladly step in as they clearly try to be the “better HFPA” with their choices.

    Netflix has declared that they will not be working with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (who organize the Golden Globes) until ‘until more meaningful changes are made.’”

    Lol.

    At this point I’d be surprised if there’s even a Globes ceremony in 2022. Would make an even weirder awards season than last.
    It’s become comical now when a winner says “Thank you to the HFPA” in their speech.

    Lol.

    LOL the same studio that invited several HFPA members to a luxury set visit of Emily in Paris just to buy nominations.

    It’s funny to see liberal Hollywood pretending they didn’t know anything about the HFPA.

    Ruffalo and Ava DuVernay are lashing the HFPA on Twitter.

    I think many are in hysterics that adding Black members will have their slates resembling Black film twitter advocacy — it won’t. These people won’t likely be American anyway.

    “yay now we’ll have poc people also be part of the corrupt system of money laundering and shameless lobbying”.

    lol that Times Up campaign really made a good effort on deviating the focus from what the article originally denounced HFPA of doing. They should just end cause their purpose is useless and perpetuates big studios to waste tons of money campaigning for their publicity spot. Diversity is certainly the least of their problems.

    Netflix is still pissed last year 3 Netflix films were in contention to win Best Drama at the Globes but all lost to Universal’s 1917. Let’s see if any big movie studio backs away from the Globes. That being said we may be witnessing the downfall of the Golden Globes live. Let’s celebrate to that.

    Amazon pulls out. Wonder who the first non-streaming distributor to pull out will be.

    I believe it was Paramount, not Netflix, that paid for those trips. Netflix acquired the show from Paramount last year after it had already been shot, if my memory serves me correct.
