After a year on the sidelines of a broadcast deal, the golden globes will be making a comeback thanks to a new broadcast partner for 2023.
NBC has won the rights to next year’s awards show, after organizers from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association received heat for a slew of controversies in 2021 that led NBC not to air the ceremony of 2022. These controversies included a lack of black HFPA members, alleged unethical conduct, and alleged financial shenanigans.
But things calmed down for the HPFA, because The Hollywood Journalist revealed that a return under NBC is happening with the broadcaster already looking to set a date for the ceremony. Traditionally held on a Sunday evening in January, 2023 is aiming for a ceremony on Tuesday, January 10, in an effort to avoid clashes with the Critics Choice Awards and the NFL season.
NBC’s return to the HPFA is the result of reforms in the management of the association, as gifts for judges were banned, more black members joined, and he wielded the ruthless scythe on a few members. The 2022 ceremony saw almost no notable attendees as outrage swirled in Hollywood, but with a broadcast there are sure to be some big name returns.
Awards season sparks a debate each year about the merit of industry awards, as well as the diversity (or lack thereof) of nominees and winners. Interestingly, competitors like the Oscars gave more weight to minority voices and more wins in 2022, and the Golden Globes also made waves with Michaela Jaé Rodriguez becoming the first trans actress to win an award.
If all goes according to plan for the HPFA, the 2023 awards show will air on January 10.
