NBC canceled the 2022 Golden Globes ceremony in the wake of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) responsible for presenting the ceremony faced criticism for accusations of sexism, corruption, and lack of diversity.
The HFPA said that they are “committed to meaningful reform” but that the changes would take time to complete.
NBC said that “assuming the organization executes. . . its plan” the Golden Globes should be able to return in 2023.
NBC’s announcement follows recent backlash as companies such as Amazon, Netflix, and WarnerMedia cut ties with the HFPA over supposedly longstanding issues of the organizations demographic profile, that is, a lack of colored members.
Back in March the HFPA made a commitment to having a 13 percent black representation in its membership after it was found that they did not have a single black journalist amongst them. Over 100 public relations firms sent a letter demanding that the HFPA make internal changes.
The HFPA will hire a new chief of diversity, equity, and inclusion in order to manage their PR crisis.
The cloud of the organization’s race and corruption scandal hung over the ‘woke’ ceremony as left-wing propaganda speeches piled on top of one another this year, leading the ceremony to an all-time low rating.
I guess the left really does eat its own.
