Golden Globes criticized for lack of diversity among voters

There are zero Black members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

The most popular awards show the Golden Globes awards ceremony is being criticized by the Times Up movement, with a campaign launched on Friday against the lack of diversity in the organization that hands out the honors for film and television.

Chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the awards have grown to be one of the most popular awards shows in the run-up to the annual Oscars.

“A cosmetic fix isn’t enough.”

Two days before the annual Golden Globes awards ceremony, Time’s Up posted banners on its Twitter account saying: “Hollywood Foreign Press Association: Not a Single Black Member Out of 87,” with the slogan “A cosmetic fix isn’t enough.”

According to a study led by the Los Angeles Times last week, there were currently no Black people among the 87-member group of foreign entertainment journalists who make up the HFPA.

Prominent Black celebrities Kerry Washington, Sterling K. Brown, Ava DuVernay, and TV producer Shonda Rhimes swiftly threw their support behind the campaign, along with the likes of directors J.J. Abrams and Judd Apatow.

The association said earlier this week that it was committed to diversifying its membership.

“We understand that we need to bring in Black members, as well as members from other underrepresented backgrounds, and we will immediately work to implement an action plan to achieve these goals as soon as possible.”

The group said in a statement.

Time’s Up was created in 2018 as a response to allegations of widespread sexual harassment in Hollywood and has since broadened its mission to fight inequality and injustice in the workplace.
