I know many of you will be devastated to learn the news that NBC has decided not to air the Golden Globes next year due to a lack of diversity. There isn’t enough political correctness at these shitty award shows that are put on for Hollywood elites and which no one really watches anymore.
“New York (CNN Business)The Golden Globes will not be airing on NBC next year, temporarily ending a decades-long relationship between the network and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the nonprofit responsible for the awards.
The network announced that it would not carry the show in 2022 after controversy surrounding the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s lack of diversity and ethical questions related to financial benefits given to some members, such as a hotel stay in connection with an “Emily in Paris” junket. …
The Times reporting found that the group has no Black members, and raised questions about benefits received by some members stemming from the millions that NBC pays for the right to televise the event, which has traditionally been one of the highest rated in the awards calendar. …”
The Oscars and Golden Globes are a window into what happens to institutions which are captured by woke progressive activists. It inevitably narrows their appeal because ordinary people hate this shit.
“Decades of failures around diversity and inclusion finally caught up with Hollywood Monday, when NBC made the unprecedented decision not to air the Golden Globes next year following backlash against the group that hosts the show.
Why it matters: NBC has been airing the event exclusively for decades. Its decision to pull back speaks to how big the backlash against the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) has become.
Driving the news: Over the weekend and on Monday, concerns that HFPA hasn’t done enough to embrace diversity among its ranks hit a breaking point.
The big picture: Hollywood is facing a slew of unprecedented business and culture challenges following the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter protests last year. …”
We’ve been covering the decline of these shows for years.
The Woke Oscars plunged to an all-time ratings low last month. The 78th Golden Globes aired in March and crashed an unbelievable 63% in viewership from the 2020 Golden Globes and sunk to a 13-year-low after posting the “lowest rating ever” in the 18-49 demographic.
Tomi Lahren is lame but even the mainstream Right has the correct take on this. Hollywood is canceling itself and using “lack of diversity” as an excuse and cover to get out of wasting so much money on this sinkhole. They can’t come out and say it is because 2/3rds of the audience vanished.
Note: Wokeness has become so central to progressive identity that it inevitably spills over into everything like the COVID vaccine distribution. They rate themselves by it now.
