Awards were blogged
The Golden Globe Awards, Hollywood’s so-called biggest party that regularly drew 18 million television viewers, was reduced to a live-blog Sunday night for its 79th edition.
The embattled Hollywood Foreign Press Association proceeded with its film awards Sunday night without a telecast, nominees, a red carpet, a host, press or even a livestream.
Instead, members of the HFPA 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.
Why the Golden Globes weren’t televised, continued
Deadline reported that the decision not to broadcast an online version of the Globes has nothing to do with the HFPA’s multimillion-dollar, multi-year deal with NBC.
According to a source at the Comcast-owned network, NBC is not blocking the HFPA’s livestream.
NBC decided to pull the plug on the show due to lack of diversity by the HFPA.
HFPA president Helen Hoehne told The Hollywood Reporter: “Change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right.”
Why the Golden Globes weren’t televised
Unfortunately, this year, the Golden Globe Awards were not available for viewing on television or streaming services.
“This year’s event is going to be a private event and will not be live-streamed,” an HFPA spokesperson told Deadline.
The HFPA continued: “We will be providing real-time updates on winners on the Golden Globes website and our social media.”
