The 79th Golden Globe Awards Will Have NO Celebs, No Red Carpet And Will Not Be Televised

Golden Globes 2022 is going ahead this weekend but it will apparently not be televised for the first time since the 2008 writers strike and there will also be no host, no red carpet, no audience, and no celebrity guests.

News.com.au confirms that on Friday, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) – the body that governs the Golden Globes, announced that the event would not be streamed online and instead would be a totally private affair, where winners to be announced on its official Twitter page.

Last year, several celebrities boycotted the Golden Globes because of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s lack of diversity.

Stars such as Olivia Wilde, Ellen Pompeo, Alyssa Milano, America Ferrera, Lupita Nyong’o, Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington, and Busy Phillips took a stand against the HFPA.

Five-time Golden Globe nominee Scarlett Johansson even said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter: “Unless there is necessary fundamental reform within the organisation, I would believe it is time that we take a step back from the HFPA”.

Mark Ruffalo, a Golden Globe winner, posted on Twitter: “Honestly, as a recent winner of a Golden Globe, I cannot feel proud or happy about being a recipient of this award.”

What made things a lot worse, was when NBC decided to pull out from airing the Golden Globe Awards in 2022 because of its need for “meaningful reform.”

“We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform. However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right,” NBC said in a statement.

“As such, NBC will not air the 2022 Golden Globes. Assuming the organisation executes on its plan, we are hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023.”

The last time the Golden Globes was live was before the Covid-19 pandemic back in 2020.
