Did the 2023 Golden Globes Redeem Themselves?

The 80th Golden Globe Awards were overshadowed by the lack of representation in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which had been accused of corruption and exposed for having no Black members in 2021. The night was hosted by comedian Jerrod Carmichael, who pointedly identified himself as “the Black face of an embattled organization.” Despite the opening monologue, the rest of the night proceeded as normal, with only tangential references to previous award show controversies. Ryan Murphy used his acceptance speech for the Carol Burnett Award to highlight the talents of Black, queer, and trans actors he has worked with, but it was still disheartening to see that they still had to rely on white, wealthy men to receive recognition. The HFPA has since added 103 new voters to its ranks, with a more diverse demographic, but racial dynamics still felt as clear-cut as ever. Despite these issues, there were also positive moments at the awards, such as the enthusiastic shoutouts to Rihanna, Jennifer Coolidge’s acceptance speech, and Mike White’s acceptance speech where he called out those who passed on his series.
