The Golden Globe Nominations Are Out, But Does It Really Matter?

leading the nods this year are “The Power of the Dog” and “Belfast.”

Monday’s nominations were met mostly with silence from movie studios and actors who normally flood social media and reporters with thanks and reactions.  

 

The globes are still flooded with controversy and it’s unclear whether anyone will even show up!

 

The winners of the Golden Globes will be announced on Jan. 9, but the ceremony’s format is unclear after broadcaster NBC earlier this year dropped plans to televise the glitzy awards dinner in Beverly Hills following criticism of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the group that votes.

 

Critics objected to the Foreign Press Association having no Black members and raised longstanding ethical questions over whether close relationships with Hollywood studios influenced the choice of nominees and winners. Tom Cruise in May returned the three Golden Globe statuettes that he has won.

 

The HFPA has since added 21 new members, six of whom are Black; banned gifts and favours; and implemented diversity and sexual harassment training. The group now has 105 members total.

 

Regardless of this effort, perhaps it’s too little, too late as major film and TV studios have tried to distance themselves from the Globes…
