The American television network NBC canceled the broadcasting of the 2022 Golden Globe Awards after complaints of moral failures and a lack of diversity, within the group that offers annual awards for film and television work.
Tom Cruise joined a move led by digital broadcasters and production studios, and returned the three Golden Globes he won for several roles, according to Variety and Deadline Hollywood.
NBC’s decision came after the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Golden Globe’s distributor, agreed to include more black members and make other changes over the next 18 months. The TV network initially welcomed the plan, but later said it would wait to see if the reforms work.
Members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association have also faced charges of making racist and sexist comments, as well as soliciting benefits and services from celebrities and studios. NBC said in a statement: “A change of this enormous size takes time and effort, and we have a strong feeling that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association needs time to be able to do it right. Accordingly, the network will not broadcast the (Golden Globes) ceremony for 2022 ».
She added, “We hope that we will be able to broadcast the concert in January 2023, assuming the Association succeeds in implementing its plan.”
The annual Golden Globes party, which is attended by stars and top entertainment officials, has become one of the biggest awards shows in Hollywood. But it is under intense scrutiny after an investigation published by the Los Angeles Times last February showed that the 87-member association does not have any black members.
