The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is moving forward with a way to recognize this year’s best film and television success, although NBC will not be televised at this year’s Golden Globe show.
“HFPA plans to recognize the performance of 2021 to celebrate the great work of the industry at the 79th annual Golden Globe last year,” a source confirmed, although there is no further information at this time as to what that recognition will be.
A letter went to the studio on Friday explaining the eligibility rules for the 3rd Golden Globes. The emphasis is on performance to raise questions about whether other areas, such as music or management, will be recognized.
Matthew Balloni of Poke speculated that the Globes could take the form of a press conference as they did during the 2008 writer’s strike.
In May, NBC announced that it would not broadcast the Golden Globe in 2022 after a series of publications about the organization’s lack of diversity and moral flaws, prompting an organization of advertisers to boycott the award. The organization has spent the summer on a number of reforms, including the addition of 21 new members, including 29% black journalists; Prohibit members from accepting gifts and travel from the studio and talent; Appoint three external members to its board of directors to oversee diversity and ethics, and to appoint a team of legal experts to the workplace.
21 new members will immediately be eligible to vote in this year’s Golden Globe.
An NBC statement in May said: “It takes time and effort to change this level and we strongly feel that HFPA needs time to work properly. As such, NBC will not be promoting the 2022 Golden Globes. Assuming the organization is working on its plan, we are hopeful that we will be in a position to broadcast the show in January 2023. ”
