The Hollywood Foreign Press Association said in a statement Saturday that it would focus on adding Black and other underrepresented members to its organization in addition to increasing transparency around its operations.
Netflix, which came in with a commanding 42 nominations, won the top TV awards. The Crown, as expected, took best drama series, along with acting wins for Josh O’Connor (Prince Charles), Emma Corrin (Princess Diana) and Gillian Anderson (Margaret Thatcher). The Queen’s Gambit won best limited series, and best actress in the category for Anya Taylor-Joy. Schitt’s Creek, the Pop TV series that found a wider audience on Netflix, won best comedy series for its final season and its Catherine O’Hara also took best actress in a comedy series. Tina Fey (l) in New York, and Amy Poehler in Beverly Hills hosted the ceremonies on NBC.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is once again facing accusations of corruption and possible violations of the tax-exempt organization. At the center of the new report is an antitrust lawsuit filed by Norwegian journalist and HFPA member Kjersti Flaa, who accused the organization of allowing a “culture of corruption” and claimed “the tax-exempt organization operated as a kind of cartel, barring qualified applicants — including herself — and monopolizing all-important press access while improperly subsidizing its members’ income.”
Nominations will be announced virtually at 8:35 a.m. ET today by presenters Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P. Henson. They will reveal 12 categories on NBC’s Today show, with full nominees announced live on E! digital channels and the Golden Globes’ website. Without any in-person screenings or photo ops with stars, little is known about how the roughly 90 member press association — a notoriously unpredictable group, in normal times — is swaying this year. But one thing may be a lock: Netflix will land a whole lot of nominations.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Norwegian entertainment reporter on Monday sued the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization that gives out the Golden Globe Awards, alleging that it acts as a cartel that stifles competition for its members.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which puts on the annual award show, said films that are first released on television or a streaming service will be eligible for January’s Globes.

The growth in streaming platforms, including Apple and Disney Plus, is a dominant media story. But while streamers performed well at the Globes with Netflix’s The Crown and Amazon’s Fleabag (starring creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, above) they didn’t shut out cable contenders including FX’s Fosse/Verdon and HBO’s Succession.

The shutout, believed to be for the first time, of the broadcast networks — ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, The CW and PBS — made for a seemingly awkward situation for NBC, which will host the awards ceremony Jan. 5 and covered the nominations live on Today.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Look out Hollywood, Ricky Gervais is returning to host the Golden Globe Awards. Gervais memorably hosted the Globes from 2010 to 2012, skewering many of the attendees with irreverent jokes.

The Golden Globe Awards will keep their spot as the first big awards show of the 2020 season. NBC and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Friday that the Golden Globes will air Jan. 5, 2020. As they have the past two years, the awards will air the first Sunday in January.
Diversity was once again front and center at the Golden Globe Awards as multiple winners used the kudocast as a bully pulpit to advocate for greater inclusion efforts throughout the entertainment industry.
Burnett said sometimes she catches herself wishing she were young so she could do it all over again, but stops herself when she realizes that today’s TV producers would never finance a show like hers, with its 28-piece live orchestra, 12 dancers and 65 costumes a week.
The Netflix comedy The Kominsky Method and FX’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story were double winners in the television category. But the award for The Americans was a sentimental favorite. The taut FX drama about two Russian spies leading an undercover life as an American couple was relatively unappreciated when awards were handed out each year. But it had a strong exit creatively, with the series finale in May called “elegant, potent and unforgettable” by The New Yorker.
The show, which will be featured on Snapchat Discover during the Golden Globes, will offer regular updates as awards are handed out.
NEW YORK (AP) — The Golden Globe Awards will introduce a new TV special achievement trophy at next month’s telecast and name it after its first recipient — comedic icon Carol Burnett.

The Golden Globes may be on the move as its longtime TV home NBC failed to close a new deal for the highly rated awards franchise within its exclusive negotiation window.
Oprah Winfrey is “actively thinking” about running for president, two of her close friends told CNN Monday. The two friends, who requested anonymity in order to speak freely, talked in the wake of Winfrey’s extraordinary speech at the Golden Globes Sunday night, which spurred chatter about a 2020 run.
The Golden Globes will be live-streamed for the first time this year.
