Golden Globes Will Not Be Livestreamed This Weekend – Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: It looks like the controversial Golden Globes will return this weekend, but no one will see it online or otherwise.

“This year’s event will be a private event and will not be broadcast live,” an HFPA spokesperson informed Deadline today, “We will be providing real-time updates on the winners on the Golden Globes website and our networks. social”.

The full results of the Reduced Balloons will be announced via a press release after the approximately 90-minute ceremony ends, we hear.

The decision not to have an online version of the mini-Globes is not actually primarily related to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s multi-million dollar, multi-year contract with NBC. A source on the Comcast-owned network tells us that NBC doesn’t get in the way of the HFPA during live broadcast.

Normally, NBC pays HFPA $ 60 million a year for the rights to broadcast the Globes. NBCUniversal, HFPA and Dick Clark Productions struck an eight-year deal in 2018.

As previously reported, the 79th annual awards ceremony will be unglamorous without a red carpet, without the attendance of the media and celebrities, meaning there will be no presenters or nominees. For the most part, the studios in their ‘For You Consideration’ ads haven’t been touting the spoils of this year’s Golden Globe nominations.

Attendees at this year’s Golden Globes will be selected members of the HFPA and recipients of grants from the organization’s philanthropy. All attendees must be vaccinated and boosted and present a recent negative Covid PCR test.

Expect Kyle Bowser, Senior Vice President of the NAACP Hollywood Office, to speak about the Reimagine Coalition during the ceremony. Last October, the venerable civil rights organization signed a five-year agreement with inclusion and challenged the HFPA to work together on a series of initiatives to open doors for diversity and increase representation.

NBC revealed on May 10, 2021 that it will not air the Golden Globes this year due to current diversity issues involving the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

The network, in a statement at the time, said it continues to believe that the HFPA is “committed to meaningful reform,” but that “a change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we strongly believe that the HFPA needs time to get it right. “. ”.
