Last night’s Golden Globe Awards ceremony went on without the fanfare of awards show season.
None of the winners appeared to be present at the event, nor did they immediately comment on their awards. Instead, members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and some recipients of the group’s philanthropic grants gathered at the Beverly Hilton Hotel for a 90-minute private event, announcing the names of the film and television winners on the organization’s social media feeds.
The HFPA came under fire after a Los Angeles Times investigation revealed last February ethical lapses and lack of diversity — there was not a single Black journalist in the 87-person group.
Since then, the group has added a chief diversity officer; overhauled its board; inducted 21 new members, including six Black journalists; brought in the NAACP on a five-year partnership; and updated its code of conduct.MORE NEWS: Pittsburgh Native Michael Keaton To Talk Climate Change Tonight On '60 Minutes'
