The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced new eligibility guidelines for future Golden Globe Award shows, despite NBC announcing the cancellation of the annual telecast in 2022. The new rules will allow non-English language films to compete in their top categories, following the ‘Minari’ backlash last awards season.
The crisis-plagued Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the body that organizes the Golden Globes, expelled Philip Berk, its former president who sparked widespread outrage by sharing an anti-Black Lives Matter article that described the movement as a “racist hate group”.
Netflix dominated the TV series awards, while ‘Nomadland’ picked up two gongs at the virtual ceremony. Health care workers and first responders were on the guest list instead of the stars, who dialed in from home.
The top honors at this year's Golden Globes went to 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri' and 'Lady Bird' in a ceremony capped off by stirring speeches and caustic jokes about the misconduct scandals roiling Hollywood.
