NBC has cancelled its planned broadcast of the 2022 Golden Globe Awards in the wake of mass boycotts by Hollywood studios against the HFPA.
The 2022 Golden Globe Awards have been canceled on NBC, with the network joining the rising tide of protest against the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The move is one of many recent developments spelling potential doom for longstanding awards shows like the Academy Awards, which have generally been led by calls for greater diversity in the voting organizations. NBC’s announcement follows extensive efforts to boycott the show in the face of what many have called insufficient efforts to reform.
A show like the Golden Globes depends on Hollywood star power to succeed, but that star power has decided to boycott the event en masse for next year. A number of independent actors have criticized the HFPA’s drastic lack of diverse representation of late, including show hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Those stars have since been joined by major studios like Netflix, Amazon, and WarnerMedia, all of whom have announced they intend to boycott the 2022 show.
Now, it looks like there may no longer be a show to boycott. Per Deadline, NBC has announced that the Golden Globes will not air on the network in 2022. “We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform,” NBC said in an official statement. “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. Assuming the organization executes on its plan, we are hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023.”
