Golden Globes - live: Stars arrive on red carpet ahead of 2023 ceremony in LA

The Golden Globes are back, one year after Hollywood boycotted the ceremony following a diversity scandal.

Awards body, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), was accused in a Los Angeles Times exposé of a lack of diversity in its voting membership – at the time, it did not have a single Black member – as well as “ethical lapses” in its business conduct.

For 2023, the HFPA has expanded its membership and enforced what has been described as a strict code of conduct among voters, which has led to the approval of many celebrities, who have decided to attend the next ceremony.

Comedian Jerrod Carmichael will host the event, which once again will be shown on NBC. Nominees, including Austin Butler, Colin Farrell and Jamie Lee Curtis, will be in attendance, with films Elvis, The Banshees of Inisherin and Everything Everywhere All At Once all vying for the top prize.

Leading the nominations for TV shows are Abbott Elementary, Only Murders in the Building and The Crown.

The Golden Globes broadcast live in the US at 8pm on NBC on Tuesday 10 January, and at 1am GMT in the UK on Peacock via Sky and NOW on Wednesday 11 January.

If it feels like a particularly long time since the Golden Globes were last on, that’s because it has been.

The ceremony was dropped in 2022 following a boycott from several notable Hollywood figures.

This was due to a Los Angeles Times exposé that accused the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) of a lack of diversity in its voting membership, as well as “ethical lapses” in its business conduct.

Speaking of Brendan Fraser, the actor has been nominated for his comeback lead role in Darren Aronofsky’s The Whale.

While many actors are returning to the Golden Globes following the boycott in 2022, the Mummy star Fraser is not one of them.

He prevously revealed he would not attend even if he was nominated, stating: “It’s because I have more history with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association than I have respect for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.”

One star who looks set to reign supreme at the 2023 Golden Globes is Michelle Yeoh.

One TV show that is nominated is Netflix’s hit show Wednesday.

While millions and millions enjoyed the series, one writer at The Independent wasn’t convinced – and wrote about why it could serve as bad news for subscribers down the line.

A good year for A24

Tuesday 10 January 2023 19:47 , Tom Murray

It’s been another great year for the industry’s buzziest entertainment company. A24’s nominees at the Globes include: Everything Everywhere All At Once, The Whale, The Inspection, Marcel The Shell, Close, and Euphoria.

Earlier this year, I took a deep dive into the mysterious studio, gaining rare access to a source close to the company and speaking with A24 golden boy Ari Aster (Hereditary, Midsommar) about what makes them tick. Give it a read!

Lest we forget about 2022 TV

Tuesday 10 January 2023 20:20 , Inga Parkel

While the Golden Globes, in the past, have been used as a potential benchmark for how films will fare at the upcoming Oscars, it’s easy to forget the best TV of 2022 is also being recognised.

Fan favourites like The Crown, Abbott Elementary and Only Murders in the Building lead this year’s competition with the most nods.

In case you’re in need of a refresher for the series vying for the top awards, look no further. I will be sharing some of our previous stories about each to jog your memory.

Starting with The Crown’s season five, which our critic Nick Hilton found to be “more insular, more gossipy, than ever” his two-star review.

Tuesday 10 January 2023 22:00 , Inga Parkel

ABC’s groundbreaking comedy Abbott Elementary, written by and starring Quinta Brunson, made history at the 2022 Emmys with its multiple victories.
