The Golden Globes have always been a bit suspect, and things came to a head this year when it was revealed yet again that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the non-profit organization of journalists that conducts the fest, doesn’t have a single Black member in the 87-person organization. During this year’s ceremony, the HFPA vowed to change. But talk is cheap, and the other day, over 100 PR Firms threatened to hold back talent from the ceremony unless the HFPA released a “timeline for transformational change.”
Now, the HFPA has countered by announcing a “plan to increase membership to a minimum of 100 members this year, with a requirement that at least 13 percent of the membership be Black journalists.”

At the Golden Globes last weekend, host Ricky Gervais kept talking about how this was the last time he would be on stage for the awards ceremony, and he didn’t care about it at all. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has taken him at his word, and next year they’ll bring back two talents who have proven to be much more beloved in their hosting duties.
The Saturday Night Live dynamic duo of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be returning to host the 78th Golden Globes for the 2021 ceremony. The two previously hosted together in 2013, 2014 and 2015, and they were praised across the board for bringing some life to the awards and tag-teaming the show with some big laughs. Read More »
The 77th Golden Globes were held yesterday and there were certainly some surprises among the winners during one of Hollywood’s big awards nights. There were some phenomenal speeches from special honorees like Ellen DeGeneres and Tom Hanks, as well as winners like actress Michelle Williams and Parasite director Bong Joon-ho. But perhaps the most buzzed about part of the night was a scathing monologue from host and comedian Ricky Gervais, who pointed fingers at the hypocrisy, sexism and other issues that have run rampant through Hollywood. Watch the 2020 Golden Globes videos below. Read More »
The 77th Golden Globes kicked the new year with plenty of glitz and glamor by honoring achievements in film and television. Chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press (which consists of roughly 90 members), the nominees and winners of the Golden Globes don’t offer as much insight into who might be in the running for Academy Awards, but it’s still a celebratory night for Hollywood that brings attention to movies and TV shows that deserve our praise.
1917 and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood walked away with the big film prizes, including a win for Sam Mendes as director and Quentin Tarantino as writer. The former made quite a surprise getaway with big awards, confusing many who had their money on The Irishman, Joker or Marriage Story. Get the rest of the 2020 Golden Globes winners below.

Awards season is heating up and this weekend the Golden Globes will kick it into high gear with a glitzy, buzzy (and hopefully slightly buzzed) ceremony. The 2020 Golden Globe presenters have been announced, and the line-up is as star-studded as you’d expect, with Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Tiffany Haddish among the glamorous stars set to present at the ceremony. Hopefully, DiCaprio and Pitt’s presentation will simply consist of an entire bit as their Once Upon a Time in Hollywood characters watching an episode of FBI.

It’s the happiest time of the year again: when the takes keep coming and award nominations start flying. The 2019 Golden Globe nominations are here to kick awards season into gear.
Terry Crews, Danai Gurira, Leslie Mann, and Christian Slater join forces with Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Meher Tatna, producer Barry Adelman, and 16-year-old Isan Elba — Idris Elba’s daughter and this year’s Golden Globes Ambassador — to reveal the films, TV series, actors, and more that have been nominated for the 76th annual Golden Globes Awards. The HFPA also announced the creation of a new category to celebrate television in the era of “Peak TV” that will be the equivalent of film’s honorary Cecil B. Demille for TV. The live stream for the announcements began at 8:10 a.m. ET at the Golden Globes website.
On the film front, Adam McKay’s searing political dramedy Vice lead the pack with a whopping six nominations, while on the TV side, the FX series The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story earned four nominations. Coming up close behind Vice were A Star is Born, The Favourite, and Green Book, all of which nabbed five nods each. This year’s superhero dark Black Panther nabbed a Best Drama nod, though its director Ryan Coogler was notably snubbed for director. And Netflix’s favorite to earn a Best Picture nod at the Oscars was deemed ineligible for Globe’s Best Drama award because it is a foreign language production. However, the Mexican drama did earn a nod for Best Foreign Film along with nominations for direction and screenplay.
Will critical darlings like The Favourite or Roma reign supreme? Will Sharp Objects get its due? We’ll find out that and more at the Golden Globes ceremony, hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg, on NBC January 6, 2019.
