In case you missed, there was quite a stir in the movie industry yesterday as NBC announced they will not be airing the Golden Globe awards next year.

NBC released a statement regarding their decision.

It comes after a backlash against the HFPA, or Hollywood Foreign Press Association, who are the insular group of international journalists who vote on the Golden Globes.

The association has come under allegations of corruption and impropriety, and it has emerged that they lack black members.

Tom Cruise is among the many to stand up to the HFPA.

He has returned his three Golden Globe awards in retaliation to the criticisms levelled at the association.

He won the accolades for 'Born on the Fourth of July', 'Magnolia' and 'Jerry Maguire'.

Netflix, WarnerMedia and Scarlett Johansson have also urged the industry to take action.

The statement from NBC reads: "We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform.

"However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right.

"As such, NBC will not air the 2022 Golden Globes.

"Assuming the organisation executes on its plan, we are hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023."

The HFPA released a statement in response as well as a detailed timeline of proposed changes.

It reads: "Regardless of the next air date of the Golden Globes, implementing transformational changes as quickly – and as thoughtfully – as possible remains the top priority for our organisation.

"We invite our partners in the industry to the table to work with us on the systemic reform that is long overdue, both in our organization as well as within the industry at large."

NBC has broadcast the Golden Globes since 1996.

They pay about $60 million a year for the broadcast rights.

However viewership figures have continued to go down, with this year's ceremony, at which 'Nomadland' was the big winner, seeing a 60% drop in viewers.
