Golden Globes will have no audience and no red carpet

There will be an event tossed by The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) on Sunday, Jan. 9, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles — the conventional area for the occasion — however it will not be telecasted, there will be no audience and no red carpet.

Organizers associated the scaled-down occasion strategies to the present Covid-19 rise.

“Health and safety remain a top priority for the HFPA. There will not be an audience on January 9th, and the following precautions are being taken for select members and grantees who will be in the room: Proof of vaccination and booster shot, along with a negative PCR test within 48 hours, is required for entry; All guests will be masked and socially distanced at all times while inside the ballroom; There will be no red carpet,” the HFPA stated in a declaration Tuesday.

NBC revealed in 2015 it would not relay this year’s Golden World Awards, following debate over an absence of variety amongst HFPA subscription and other ethical concerns connected to monetary advantages.

The HFPA included its declaration Tuesday that there have actually been “sweeping changes” to the company.

“Over the last eight months, the HFPA has completely overhauled their bylaws, implementing sweeping changes from top to bottom that address ethics and code of conduct, diversity, equity and inclusion, governance, membership and more. Recently, the HFPA admitted their largest and most diverse class to date of 21 new members, all of whom are first-time Golden Globe voters,” the declaration checks out.

Though studios did not formally send titles for factor to consider, elections for the 79th Yearly Golden World Awards were revealed in December. “The Power of the Dog” and “Belfast” lead movie candidates, while HBO’s “Succession” made the most elections for a television series with 5. Apple’s “Ted Lasso” and “The Morning Show” have 4 elections each.
