[ # ] Ricky Gervais didn’t kill the Golden Globes, the HFPA did
May 10th, 2021 under Awards

The Hollywood Press Association has very restrictive requirements to be a member of their group. Because of that, Hollywood has criticized the mostly white male group. This year it all came to a head, and Amazon, Netflix, and Warner Media, along with several celebrities, said they were boycotting the Golden Globes.

Even though HFPA made some changes, they were not enough. Therefore, today NBC made a tough decision.

“We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform,” said the Comcast-owned network this morning, according to Deadline. “However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right.  As such, NBC will not air the 2022 Golden Globes.  Assuming the organization executes on its plan, we are hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023.”

I doubt the show will be back. There are too many award shows, and with falling ratings, the Globes are not worth their $60 million price tag. Isn’t that crazy?

We don’t miss the Daytime Emmy and the People’s Choice Awards, so we won’t miss the Globes. I hope the other organizations become controversial so we can have even less award shows. Do we need any more? I would be OK with just the EGOTs being the only ones.

Well, you miss the Globes?
