Once one of Hollywood’s most star-studded affairs, the 79th Golden Globe Awards will be presented Sunday evening — but without any stars, without a TV partner and without even a livestream of the winners announcements.

“This year’s event is going to be a private event and will not be livestreamed,” the embattled Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced last week on Twitter. “We will be providing real-time updates on winners on the Golden Globes website and our social media.”

The Globes’ fall from grace follows revelations about the HFPA’s historical lack of Black members — zero among its 87 voters in 2020 — and questions about the group’s ethical standards. The revelations were first documented by the Los Angeles Times around the time of the January 2021 Globes ceremony.

Since then, NBC announced it was pulling the plug on televising the event, and reports proliferated that stars showed no inclination toward participating.

While the HFPA has also revamped its bylaws and made a push toward greater diversity in its ranks in the past year, those moves, for this year at least, have failed to restore the Globes’ luster.

As a result, Sunday evening’s 90-minute event from the Beverly Hilton Hotel, which begins at 6 p.m., will feature only HFPA donors and supporters, along with organization higher-ups, according to reports.

Additionally, Kyle Bowser, senior vice president of the NAACP Hollywood Bureau, “will further discuss the `Reimagine Coalition,’ a joint five-year initiative to increase diversity, equity and inclusion across the global entertainment industry,” the HFPA said in an announcement.

“Each year the HFPA and the NAACP Hollywood Bureau will collaborate on, fund, and support a series of trailblazing initiatives, with the overall goals of ensuring visibility of projects from artists of diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds; increasing diverse representation in the industry; and building pathways to inclusion for young artists and journalists of color,” the announcement said.

The HFPA also said that, in October, it admitted “its largest and most diverse class to date with 21 new journalists, all of whom were first-time Golden Globe voters.”

Those statements mirrored the words of HFPA President Helen Hoehne during the Dec. 13 nominations announcement, at which she said, “This has been a year of change and reflection for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. For eight months we have worked tirelessly as an organization to be better.”

The nominations announcement was livestreamed, with Snoop Dogg sharing the stage with Hoehne to reveal nominees in 25 categories in movies and television in a scaled-back presentation.

As for the nominees Sunday, “Belfast” and “The Power of the Dog” garnered a leading seven nods apiece in film, while HBO’s “Succession” got five noms to lead among TV shows.

By company, Netflix led the way with 17 film nominations, followed by MGM/United Artists with nine and Warner Bros. with eight.

On TV, HBO/HBO Max led with 15 nominations, followed by Hulu and Netflix with 10 each.
