The Golden Globes will have a new management. This was announced by Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) in a statement, further mentioning that a new era is beginning for the organization.
The awards ceremony was handled by Dick Clark Productions and Eldridge. This news comes after the Press Association has faced controversy over the past few years over the lack of diversity among its voting members.
Helen Hoehne, President of the HFPA, said:
“We are pleased to complete this highly anticipated, member-approved transaction. [de la Asociación] and make the transition from a member-run organization to a commercial enterprise.”
What will happen to the HFPA and the Golden Globes?
The organization, run by international journalists, will be dissolved, as will the electoral and membership system. Now the HFPA Foundation is being established, which will “continue to support charitable causes in the entertainment field.”
Likewise, the balloons will be delivered next year, but planning is the responsibility of the new owners.
Jay Penske, CEO of Dick Clark Productions, claimed the following:
“As custodians of the Golden Globes, our mission is to continue to provide the most dynamic awards ceremony on live television around the world.” We have a great team to grow this iconic brand and engage new and existing viewers to experience the best of television and celebrate film.”
Todd Boehly, President of Eldridge, was also excited about the future of the brand. These were his words:
“Today marks an important milestone in the development of the Golden Globes. My partners at DCP and I thank Helen and the team for their dedication in successfully implementing a robust approach to governance, expanding the diverse and international constituency, and implementing a professional, safe and responsible environment and trust in new owners with a new direction for the Globes.”
What do you think of the new management of the Golden Globes? Voters must make their point of view known. Next, the next ceremony takes place January 7, 2024.
