After Scarlett Johansson and other exponents of the film industry, too Tom Cruise protests against the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and decides to return the Golden Globes won in the past.
In a society increasingly characterized by diversity and representativeness, the reforms promised by an institution such asHollywood Foreign Press Association, the body responsible for organizing the prestigious Golden Globe Awards every year, simply are not enough.
It is too little and too late, and sexual, racial and gender discrimination has by no means been eradicated with the latest measures adopted, as the Time’s Up movement also complained.
For this reason, various exponents of the world of cinema and television, as well as influential companies from Netflix to Warner Bros., have decided to join the protests against HFPA in a more active way.
Tom Cruise, for example, wanted to return the three awards won in the past years received on the occasion of the prestigious ceremony, namely the one for Best Actor in Jerry Maguire (1996), the same recognition for Born on July 4th (1989) and the award for Best Supporting Actor for Magnolia (1999).
Meanwhile, the American broadcaster NBC, which usually broadcasts the Golden Globes, has decided to cancel next year’s event: “We continue to believe that HFPA is striving to make significant reforms. However, changes of this magnitude take time and work, and it is our firm belief that HFPA needs more time to do everything right. As such, NBC will not air the Golden Globes 2022. But assuming the organization executes the plans as best we can, we are hopeful that we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023.“.
