Original Article

The HFPA, which hands out the Golden Globe Awards, has been under fire for months, following an initial expos by the Los Angeles Times about both the small, insular organizations questionable financial practices, as well as a paltry record of diversity and representation (including an entire lack of Black members).

NBC announced today it will not air the Golden Globes in 2022, the network said in a statement. Due to the fact that both NBC and The HFPA are broadcast partners and they have yet to enact the changes demanded by the industry leaders regarding the organization’s membership and processes, it is unclear how they will move forward next year.
