The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which organizes the Golden Globes, hit the center of the scandal after two new articles in the Los Angeles Times. The organizations ranks include some 80 participants, many of whom are virtually unknown to the general public. Allegations against the association emerged as early as last November, when Norwegian press representative Kjörsti Flaa said that the organization promotes a “culture of corruption”.
This happened after it was refused to be accepted into the association. Fresh accusations globally relate to two topics — the same corruption and ethical issues.
Many did not like the lack among the Golden Globe nominees of projects praised by other publications — in the spirit of “I Can Destroy You” and “Five One Blood & raquo;. At the same time in the list there are doubtful for many things like “Emily in Paris”.
The Association is accused not only of lack of support for racial issues and projects on this subject, but also in the game “in favorites. ” According to the articles, in the process of creating “Emily in Paris” about 30 members of the organization on a special plane were taken to France for a press event directly to France.
In addition, despite charitable work and donations, the association pays its participants amounts of incomprehensible nature, which in theory may be contrary to US tax law. Recently, participants received about $2 million in payments for participation in various committees – this is twice as much as three years ago.
According to one of the anonymously interviewed, organizations are simply “sucking money out” while covering up with noble motives. One of the sources of income just remains the Globe ceremony, which in the last year alone has generated $27.
4 million. Representatives of the association deny the charges, noting that not control the votes of their own participants.
Meanwhile, the next award ceremony will be held on February 28.
