For some reason, CBS is keeping the Golden Globes around

NBC parted ways with the Golden Globes because they reportedly had a history of lack of diversity.

It looked like no one wanted to air the award shows that parted ways with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and taken over by Dick Clark Productions.

I guess that sounded good to CBS because they decided to air it this year. Even though it was not a ratings success, the network is happy enough with it to give it five more years.

“We’re so proud to continue to call CBS our home for the Golden Globes,” said Jay Penske, chairman and CEO of Penske Media and Dick Clark Productions. “CBS stepped up for the Globes during a very challenging time, and inherently understood its value, while having the foresight, imagination and conviction to bring this iconic show to its many platforms. We’ve long admired CBS’ commitment to some of the greatest cultural live events and partnering for the long term further cements this show’s legacy and incredible place in history.”

The Globes must be cheap because why else would they keep them going in a television world with way too many awards shows?


They should just cancel the Golden Globes

Ever since the scandals, no one cares about the Golden Globes. However, CBS decided to acquire the rights and air them on January 7th.

And it looked like they were going to go hostless because no one had been named. But then today, they announced who the MC would be, and that person is Jo Koy.

“We are thrilled to have Jo host the 81st Annual Golden Globe Awards and bring his infectious energy and relatable humor to kick off Hollywood’s award season. We can’t wait to see what he has in store for the stars in the room and a global audience,” said Helen Hoehne, Golden Globes president. “We know Jo is bringing his A-game.”

Koy is funny. But he is no host. And with all the comedians CBS has, you think one of them would’ve said yes.

Personally, I think they should’ve gone with Matt Rife. And just let him make fun of the celebrities during the awards show. The comedian already roasted S.W.A.T.’s Shemar Moore.

What do you think of Koy hosting? Tell me in the comments.


CBS ‘won’ the Golden Globes

The Golden Globes was cancelled a few years ago because of their lack of diversity. But, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association made some changes and sold their awards to Dick Clark Productions.

It aired on NBC last year, and the ratings were disastrous. As was the show. Therefore, NBC dropped them, and it looked like no one was going to broadcast the Golden Globes.

Well, today, CBS announced they won the rights to the awards show on January 7th. But did they really win? I don’t think so.

There are too many award shows, and this one has way too much baggage.

Nominations will be announced on December 11th.


The American Music Awards won’t happen in 2023

Do you ever feel like there are way too many award shows? Well, we are not alone because television networks think the same way. So the Academy of Country Music Awards and the Screen Actors Guild Awards have moved to streaming, but not all award shows are being saved by online sites.

ABC is not expected to renew its contract with the American Music Awards, and no streaming site decided to air them. So the Billboard Music Awards took their slot on November 19th, according to Variety.

Therefore, the AMAs cannot go on, on that date. So the earliest they can do a show is BBMA’s original date in May 2024.

Would you miss the AMAs if they went away? I say the fewer award shows, the better!
