This weekend, the Golden Globe is set to return, but viewers hoping to see the ceremony online or may not be able to see their favorites win.
According to Deadline, the Golden Globe Awards will not be broadcast live and will be a private event. A representative from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association said Deadline that Sunday’s Globes will provide real-time updates on the winners on the Golden Globes website and on social media. The full results of the ceremony will be released via a press release following the 90-minute event.
The move, however, is unrelated to the HFPA’s relationship with NBC, the network that has aired the Globes in recent years, with the HFPA having a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract with NBC. According to Deadline, sources say NBC is not obstructing the decision not to broadcast live.
HFPA is typically paid $ 60 million by NBC for the broadcast rights to the ceremony.
As well as being a private event, this year’s Globes will not have a red carpet – which includes celebrities and media – meaning there won’t be any presenters, and the studios won’t have any presenters. not campaigned with âFor Your Considerationâ ads for their projects.
The HFPA’s issues with diversity will likely be addressed at the ceremony. Last October, the NAACP signed an agreement with the HFPA to work on a series of diversity initiatives and increase representation. NBC Universal revealed in May that they will not be showing the Golden Globes due to diversity issues with the HFPA.
