Golden Globes boycotted by NBC for lack of diversity
On January 9, the Golden Globes ceremony will not be televised on NBC, contrary to custom, as recalled 20 minutes.

Sizeable problem: among its 87 members, the association had no black journalists since 2002.

Media, actors and actresses have called for no longer supporting the Golden Globes. Several production studios or streaming platforms, including Netflix and Amazon Studios, have also called for substantial changes to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

This boycott of NBC is expected to have a significant impact on the finances of the Golden Globes, especially from broadcast rights. The channel said it was “hopeful” of resuming broadcasting of the ceremony in 2023, provided the Hollywood Foreign Press Association “resumes. [réforme] in a significative way”.
