Golden Globes 2023: Top moments

The Golden Globes returned Tuesday (10 January) night, one year after Hollywood boycotted the ceremony following a diversity scandal.

Its awarding 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 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 decided to attend this year’s ceremony.

Comedian Jerrod Carmichael hosted the event, shocking the audience with his joke about only being invited by the HFPA because he’s Black and his comment about Tom Cruise and David Miscavige’s wife.

The Banshees of Inisherin and The Fabelmans earned the top prizes for films of the night, while Abbott Elementary and House of the Dragon landed the top awards for TV.

The Golden Globes broadcasted live in the US on NBC on Tuesday 10 January, and 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.”
