The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) is going ahead with the 2022 edition of the Golden Globe Awards, despite not being a telecast partner.

In a statement posted on its website, the HFPA said the 79th ceremony of the Golden Globes has been scheduled for January 9.

The movie and TV submission entry form deadline is November 15 and final nominations will come out on December 13.

Earlier this year, the HFPA received an intense response following a Los Angeles Times report that the organization had counted zero black journalists among its then-87 members.

Following the revelation, NBC, a longtime telecast partner for the awards, announced that it would not air the 2022 iteration of the Golden Globes.

Hollywood star Tom Cruise also returned the three Golden Globes he won for his films Born the Fourth of July, Jerry Maguire and Magnolia.

In March, the HFPA said on social media that it intended to reform, starting with the hiring of a diversity expert and an independent attorney as “preliminary steps we will take over the next 60 days”.

During this year’s Golden Globes broadcast, three HFPA leaders – Helen Hohen, Vice President; Meher Tatna, Board President and former Chairman; And Ali Sir, the current Speaker – had come on stage and addressed the controversy.

Three members stressed that “Black representation is important” and that they are working to “idealize” diverse membership.
