For the first time in 14 years, the Golden Globe will be held without spectators, red carpet and celebrities.

The Golden Globes lost their luster after pandering to the awakened brigade and almost abandoned themselves.

Once the most famous party in Hollywood, filled with the rich and the beautiful, it will now only be available online amid growing pressure from variety and conflicting jokes.

It comes after a series of tense recent ceremonies in which sour-faced stars became too scared to squeeze out a smile for fear of being criticized on social media.

And after last year’s event, people like Scarlett Johansson and Tom Cruise spoke up – the 59-year-old Mission Impossible star even returned three awards.

The organizers confirmed yesterday that this year’s ceremony will only be held online after the boycott participants have withdrawn from participation.

This Sunday, the event will be without spectators, celebrities, and a red carpet featuring fan favorites like Lady Gaga and Britain’s 2019 winners Olivia Coleman.

A small proportion of guests staying at the Beverly Hilton will be required to wear masks at all times and maintain public distance.

Proof of vaccination, negative PCR and booster vaccinations are also required for all participants.

Officially, the organizer of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has named the pandemic and the rise in Covid cases across America as a reason for the low-key celebration.

But in fact, the slow and steady decline in ratings, coupled with growing controversy over ruthless jokes and representativeness, has led to a decline in Globes’ appeal.

Globes fell from 18 million to 6.9 million last year.

The audience at the ceremony was the smallest since US TV giant NBC began broadcasting in 1996 – and a little more than half the number the BBC attracted in last year’s Strictly finale.

NBC dropped the awards last year.

This came after it was revealed that none of the 87 HFPA members were black.

He made a number of changes to try and fix the scandal.

But the move failed to convince the boycotting stars to attend or broadcast the event live.

Traditionally, the Golden Globes have been known as the sharper and drunker younger brother of the more prestigious Academy Awards.

In 2011, Robert Downey Jr. joked that he “doesn’t know if an actress can do her best work until I sleep with her.”

SAVING SAVING

And Avengers star Jeremy Renner, 50, joked about Jennifer Lopez’s impressive Globes on stage in 2015.

Both remarks would have sparked outrage on social media if they were thought of the way they are today.

By the time Ricky Gervais held his fifth globe in 2020, the fate of the HFPA was almost sealed.

In furious criticism, the British comedian targeted virtually everyone in attendance, calling the hypocrisy of the rich and famous, as well as labeling the HFPA as “very, very racist” and ridiculing their friendship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

The faces of the celebrities in the room spoke of everything, and Pierce Morgan called the brutal destruction “a magnificent blow on the globe for awakened Hollywood hypocrites testifying to virtue.”

Jonathan Shalit, general manager of London show business, said: “Golden globes are no longer golden.

“They used to be the forerunners of the Oscars, for which the whole world looked impatiently.

“Now it’s an awards ceremony, which is a bit like the Carabao Cup, which makes no sense.

“It has become a hot potato that no one wants to keep. It’s almost like, “What’s the point of the Golden Globes now?” “.

The stars stifle change

Another day, another exciting event, marked by the awakened brigade.

The Golden Globes lifted us up during the January recession. Aldeady no.

Last year, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association was rightly criticized for not being black in its 87-member group, and for not nominating black actors.

To its credit, the association has changed.

The chief executive oversees the dealership, while the black boss of the entertainment industry is driving a five-year plan.

The group also has 21 new journalists, six of whom are black.

However, for reasons beyond my control, these massive changes are still not enough for celebrities and TV channels.

It’s funny that racial progress doesn’t count unless the awakened, insatiable Hollywood gatekeepers talk about it.

How will things get better if those who want to make a difference take such an aggressive and ineffective stance?

The Golden Globes should give them the 2022 Most Smug Signers of Virtue award.
