2022 Golden Globes Decision: The Resolution Will Not Be Televised


The 2022 Golden Globes will not be televised. Or even live streamed on Sunday night.

The Hollywood Foreign Press persisted in giving awards despite losing their T V show. They made changes to their organization but they weren’t enough.

And they certainly weren’t going to pay for a Livestream. So without a sponsor the Globes will be a private affair.  It’s a calamitous ending to a brutal saga. It’s unclear how or if they’ll come back from this.
