The long-embattled awards show kicks off a new era under new ownership
The nominees for the 2024 Golden Globes will be announced today, kicking off a new era for the long-embattled awards show.
Cedric the Entertainer and Wilmer Valderrama will announce the nominees starting at 8 a.m. ET/5 a.m. PT. The announcements will be broadcast on CBSNews.com and the Golden Globes website, while 10 additional categories will be shared live on CBS Mornings at 8:30 a.m. ET.
Earlier this year, Dick Clark Productions purchased the Golden Globes, and all its assets, from the scandal-plagued Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The acquisition signaled a “winddown” (as it was put in a statement at the time) of the HFPA and its membership, with the Globes transitioning from a non-profit enterprise to a commercial one. Dick Clark Productions is owned by Rolling Stone’s parent company, Penske Media Corporation, in partnership with the holding company Eldridge.
For decades, the Globes and the HFPA had faced accusations of vote fixing, bribery, and other shady dealings. Brendan Fraser also accused former HFPA president Philip Berk of groping him at a 2003 event, a claim Berk denied (an official investigation found that Berk had “inappropriately touched” Fraser, but “evidence support that it was intended to be taken as a joke”). Berk was later expelled from the HFPA after sending an email to members in which he quoted an article calling Black Lives Matter a “racist hate movement.” This was revealed not long after a damning Los Angeles Times investigation that revealed the HPFA had no Blackvoting members until that year.
The 2021 uproar prompted NBC to drop the Golden Globes telecast for 2022, but the show returned to the airwaves earlier this year. The sale to Dick Clark Productions was announced a few months later, in June.
The 2024 Golden Globes will notably feature two new prizes alongside all the traditional film and TV categories: Cinematic and Box Office Achievement in Motion Pictures and Best Performance in Stand-Up Comedy on Television. The 2024 show will take place on Jan. 7, airing live on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.
