Golden Globes to return to TV in 2023 after diversity row – BBC News

BBC, 22 Sep 2022
Annual Hollywood awards show The Golden Globes are to return to television next year, after allegations of racism, sexism and conflicts of interest saw its broadcaster drop the programming.

Second only to the Oscars in terms of profile, the awards were dropped by NBC, who said at the time it wanted to see "meaningful reform" from the organisers.

This came after it was revealed that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which hands out the awards based on votes from its members, had not had a single black member for 20 years.

Since then, 21 new members have joined the HFPA, who have embarked on a series of public reforms - including a ban on members receiving gifts from movie studios courting their votes.
