NBC says it will not air 2022 Golden Globes
NEW YORK (AP)– NBC announced on Monday that they will not air the Golden Globes in 2022.
The decision comes in response to the criticism of Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) from studios and stars over the lack of diversity.
Tom Cruise returned his three Golden Globes due to the growing pressure in Hollywood.
The Golden Globes award show is one of the oldest and most-watched in the industry, as reported by the AP.
In a statement, NBC said it believes the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — which is facing possible boycotts over the inclusiveness of its membership from Netflix, Warner Bros. and many Hollywood actors — is committed to reform. But change can’t come quickly enough for next year’s Globes.
“However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right,” the network said. “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.”
Streaming services Netflix and Amazon Studios both announced they will cut ties with the HFPA if changes were not made.NBC2 Fort Myers
