Hollywood Officially Doesn’t Care About the Golden Globes Anymore
Monday's nominations were met with a pretty lukewarm response
Since the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s slew of scandals last year, the organization has inexplicably forged ahead with its Golden Globe Awards. Despite no longer having a broadcast partner for the event, they announced their nominations on Monday. And as a new Variety report points out, those nominations were met with little fanfare, and actors, producers and other nominees barely acknowledged the nods.
“There were no press releases sent en masse with statements thanking the HFPA and saluting co-stars and filmmakers,” the publication notes. “Also absent were the emotional reaction calls between journalists and nominees, still recovering from their shock at the big news. Instead, when Variety reached out to the nominated studios and publicists for top talent, most messages went unanswered or were met with a ‘no comment.’”
One nominee who did react to the news was Pose co-creator and showrunner Steven Canals — though he took the opportunity to call out the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s problematic history.
“This affirmation is bittersweet,” Canals tweeted after receiving news of his show’s three nominations. “They’ll likely be the last of our recognition for the final season. And it comes from an organization that hasn’t always been inclusive of the folks centered on our show.”
“Hoping these nominations mean the HFPA is making an intentional effort to address the criticism they’ve received in recent past, and we’ll continue to see acknowledgment and recognition of all the incredible work being produced by BIPOC & LGBTQ+ people,” he continued.
We’ll have to wait and see about that. If the tepid response to this year’s Golden Globe nominations are any indication, Hollywood is already done with the HFPA; who knows if they’ll even bother next year?
