Awards Ceremony returns to TV in 2023
The Golden Globes will return to TV in 2023. US broadcaster NBC did not want to sign more than a one-year contract.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which has come under massive criticism due to allegations of corruption and racism, has announced that the Golden Globes will be televised again in 2023. According to “Variety”, a deal has been concluded with the US broadcaster NBC for one year. Accordingly, the award ceremony, which will celebrate the 80th anniversary edition next year, will take place on January 10 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
The Golden Globes were not broadcast on TV for the first time this year, and there was no audience present due to the corona pandemic. The HFPA came under fire when it was revealed that its membership was made up almost entirely of white journalists. According to the report, however, the association has now become much more diverse.
First a test balloon
The fact that they have only agreed on a one-year contract for the time being indicates that the acceptance of the most important film awards in the USA – behind the Oscars – should first be explored. December 12, 2022 will show whether the nomination list is different or whether it will once again cause criticism. Then the contenders for the Globes will be announced.
