No celebrity presenters for controversy-hit Golden Globes

This year at the Golden Globes 2022 there will be no celebrity presenters when the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announces this year’s winners on 9th of January.

A copy of an email from the Globes talent booker that was shared with several publicity agencies inquiring about their clients participating in the show, reports the publication from Variety.com

Also, according to the sources, no celebrities have agreed to take part.
“The Golden Globes will move forward with a small event on January 9 that will not only award the best performances in television and film for 2021, but also on recognising the importance of supporting diverse creatives across the industry,” the letter said.

“The event this year will celebrate and honour a variety of diverse, community-based programs that empower inclusive filmmakers and journalists to pursue their storytelling passions.”

“The HFPA has financially supported important underserved organizations for decades and will continue to invest in the future leaders of our industry.”

The details about how the winners will be revealed or where the event will occur has not been provided.

“The event will have limited guests and with strict Covid-19 protocols that include not only proof of full vaccination, but also a booster shot and a negative PCR test,” the email stated.

The organization’s President, Helen Hoehne and surprise presenter Snoop Dogg announced the nominees for this year’s awards during a live stream on the Globes’ YouTube page on December 13.

The HFPA still has to announce its official plans for the January 9 ceremony.
The network NBC canceled the annual telecast this year after the HFPA came under fire due to lack of diversity among its membership and unethical business practices.
Since then, 21 new members have been added to help diversify the organization and new bylaws have been passed.
