Golden Globe Awards To Return To Broadcast In 2023 After Diversity Controversy

By Anita Tai.

The Golden Globe Awards are set to broadcast on NBC again.

The awards show switched to a private ceremony for the 2022 show after controversy arose over accusations of a lack of diversity in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

The Los Angeles Times released a report in 2021 which found the organization had no Black journalists and accused it of avoiding nominating female filmmakers and “racist nominations” among other accusations.
