Following a weekend of streamers adding onto the HFPA boycott, NBC went a step further and cancelled the 2022 Golden Globes broadcast. The HFPA had been sitting on their own 20 yard line and were looking at 4th-and-long. There was no first down to be had. They ended up getting sacked and not just in the football metaphor kind of way. The latest news came as Tom Cruise took the protest a step further by…"Golden Globes: NBC Cancels Award Broadcast"
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) is taking more hits than an NFL player as publicists, filmmakers, and talent call them out. Following their recent vote to meet the publicist requirements, the HFPA only continued to get called out. This time, it was more than just the publicists. Studios like Netflix and Amazon are now getting involved. Even Avengers stars Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson have made public comments. The Black Widow star couldn’t have…"HFPA Is Taking More Hits Than An NFL Player"
Last week’s Los Angeles Times expose into the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and the Golden Globe Awards was pretty damning. The only reason why the Golden Globe Awards get so much attention is because of the fact that it’s on NBC. Well, the open bar makes for a laid atmosphere, too. Take both away and they are no different than other groups of journalists voting for awards. Oh, wait. Can we even call them journalists?…"The Golden Globe Awards Don’t Need Our Attention"

This is because of the comedian has a problematic past with telling transphobic jokes. Gervais can say that they are just jokes…"77th Golden Globes: Award Winners – Live Updates!"
With the Golden Globes crowning Bohemian Rhapsody for Best Picture – Drama all thoughts turn to the Oscars and the inevitable Best Picture nomination of the Queen biopic. I want to get one thing straight. I have nothing negative to say about Rami Malek’s performance as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. His performance was absolutely suburb. The problem with the film goes back to the screenplay’s embellishments. The paint-by-numbers biopic embellishes so much of what we…"Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody Is Not The Best Picture"
The 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards will air tonight on NBC. I’m offering my predictions for tonight’s film and television awards even though it’s probably a crap-shoot. It’s always tricky when it comes to predicting the Golden Globe Awards because nobody truly knows how the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will vote. After all, this is the same group that previously nominated The Tourist for Best Comedy or Musical during their 68th Golden Globe Awards in 2011. …"76th Annual Golden Globe Awards Predictions"
This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees for the 2017 Golden Globe Awards for the films and television in the year ending in a few weeks. My own personal opinion of the HFPA not withstanding, there are some definite snubs on both the film and television fronts. With the films being separated into both comedy and drama, there can be some surprises that won’t otherwise be considered for the Oscars. I tend…"2017 Golden Globe Awards: Quick Take Analysis"
