Since then, things have gone from bad to horrible as the HFPA leadership has applied one Band-id after another as Hollywood's top studios and talent have expressed displeasure with the group overall.
On May 6, around 75 of the insular HFPA’s 86 members voted for an inclusion and overhaul proposal the group’s board put forth at the beginning of that week in hopes of reframing the narrative. Chatter over the weekend, especially when Netflix's co-CEO Ted Sarandos announced that the streamer wouldn't engage with the HFPA until real reform was in place, was making it loud and clear that it was too little, too late.
Having seen its reforms and relevance crash and burn for the time being, the only statement so far from the HFPA today was a tweet on international box office just before the news of the 2022 shuttering broke
Sure to dramatically shuffle the awards-season deck as Tinseltown and America gingerly come out of the coronavirus pandemic, the decision to shutter the 2022 Globes was made earlier Monday as WarnerMedia joined Netflix and Amazon this weekend in cutting off ties with the HFPA due to their collective lack of confidence in the nonprofit group to enact serious systemic reform.

Assuming the organization executes on its plan, we are hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023." "However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right. As such, NBC will not air the 2022 Golden Globes. "We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform," the Comcast-owned network said this morning.
To say that that attempt went over badly is an understatement of blockbuster proportions. Hit by a savvy campaign by Time's Up on the eve of the 78th Globes in February, a trio of HFPA brass tried to mitigate events by taking to the stage and promising to increase representation and adopt polices of great inclusion.
With the events of the past week and the announcement by NBC today, the duo's exit looks positively prophetic.” />
In the fog of upheaval right now, it is unclear whether NBC will be paying the HFPA the $60 million annual fee for the 2022 right to air Globes, which is produced by dick clark productions. NBCUniversal inked a new eight-year deal with the HFPA and dcp in 2018 to continue its long-term broadcasting of the ceremony until 2026 with the inflated price tag.

Shaun Harper and fixer supreme/Scandal inspiration Judy Smith both walk out in frustration last month. After the 78th Globes and before the latest vote, the HFPA saw racially offensive remarks from a former president and newly minted Diversity and Inclusion advisor Dr.
The rookie co-hosts on the Golden Globes show Sunday had their ups and downs, so perhaps the Oscars would do better to pursue proposals of going without hosts at all, especially since the job of clearing an emcee is proving ever more tenuous, as we discuss on this week's episode of The Bart & Fleming Podcast.

Among the networks, Netflix extended its streak as the most nominated outlet for a third consecutive year, widening the gap with No. HBO had 6 noms; FX had 4. Netflix nabbed 15 total noms, almost twice as many as its nearest competitor, Prime Video (8). And two years ago, Netflix (17) also was followed by HBO (13).” /> 2 to the biggest yet.

While Golden Globes' MO has been becoming the first to recognize new show, the SAG Awards have been pretty unpredictable, often not acknowledging breakout freshmen until their second season.
