The Scandalous 2023 Golden Globes

On Tuesday, January 10th, the 80th Annual Golden Globe Awards took place. Unlike last year’s show, the award show was aired live on NBC and can be watched on their streaming service, Peacock. 

The change in 2022 was due to a scandal about the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which presents the Golden Globes, when an expose with the Los Angeles Times revealed that the HFPA had no Black members.  

The show’s host, Jerrod Carmichael, immediately touched on the controversy when introducing himself, bluntly stating that, “I’ll tell you why I’m here. I’m here because I’m Black, “and that the Globes haven’t had “a single Black member until George Floyd died. So do with that information what you will.” 

THE HFPA did not immediately address their issues until only two awards were left in the ceremony when HFPA President Helen Hoehne took the stage. She remarked that the organization will continue to “support groups that amplify a variety of voices and continue to add representation to [their] organization from around the world as we did in the past year.”

The 2023 Golden Globes was a “comeback” after the cancellation of last year’s telecast. Still, its attempt was in vain since viewership numbers hit an all-time low at 6.3 million, with narrowly higher ratings, beating the 2008 writer’s strike, which had only 6 million viewers.

While some nominees didn’t attend the award show, whether it was due to conflicting schedules or other circumstances, the most apparent one was Brendan Fraser, nominated best actor for The Whale, who has vowed not to attend the event since he was allegedly sexually assaulted by the former president of the HFPA in 2003.

The first award of the night was given to Ke Huy Quan (Everything Everywhere All at Once) and Angela Bassett (Black Panther: Wakanda Forever) for best-supporting actor. The former of the two gave an emotional thank-you speech about his fame as a child and his unexpected comeback, thanking the Everything Everywhere All at Once directors who gave him a chance to break back into action almost forty years later. 

The night’s last award was best motion picture drama and was received by The Fabelmans, Steven Spielberg’s semi-autobiographical film.

The Banshees of Inisherin was one of the more notable wins in terms of film, winning the award for best picture, musical, or comedy and being the most nominated film at the Globes.
