Golden Globes announce 2023 nominations after recent troubles


“The Fabelmans” received several nominations, including best drama and best director for Steven Spielberg.

By Brooks Barnes


The companies behind the tarnished Golden Globe Awards pushed forward with a rehabilitation effort earlier this week, announcing nominations for a televised ceremony on Jan. 10 that will find “The Fabelmans,” “Elvis” and “The Banshees of Inisherin” among those in contention for the top film prizes.


Who will show up to collect the trophies is another matter.


NBC canceled the 2022 telecast amid an ethics, finance and diversity scandal involving the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the unorthodox organization that bestows the Globes. Citing extensive HFPA reforms, NBC in September agreed to return the ceremony to its air for an 80th installment — under a one-year trial. For the first time, the show will also be available simultaneously online, through Peacock, NBCUniversal’s streaming service.


Most movie studios view the Globes telecast and accompanying red carpet spectacle as crucial marketing opportunities for winter films, especially dramas, which have been struggling at the box office. But not everyone in Hollywood is eager for the Globes to return. Publicists and agents say that some stars (those with the most to gain from the exposure) have an open mind, while others want the Globes to be retired forever.


Kelly Bush Novak, the chief executive of ID, a leading Hollywood publicity and marketing firm, said she would encourage clients to participate, in part because she expected Globe voters to recognize a diverse group of artists. “Many of us — in a truly collective effort — held the organization accountable, and many of us are encouraged by the strides and commitment that have resulted,” Novak said. (She added, however, that more work needed to be done.)


Last year, after The Los Angeles Times enumerated the foreign press association’s well-known but long-overlooked lapses, Tom Cruise returned his Globe trophies. More recently, Brendan Fraser, who has received rave reviews for his performance as a morbidly obese man in “The Whale,” said that he would not attend the ceremony if nominated. In 2018, Fraser accused a then-member of the HFPA of groping him in 2003, which the member denied.


Fraser was nominated on Monday for best actor in a drama. Other notable nominees include Ana de Armas, for her performance in Netflix’s widely derided Marilyn Monroe biopic “Blonde.” James Cameron was nominated as best director, for “Avatar: The Way of Water,” which opens worldwide on Friday.


Some awards prognosticators had expected to see Cruise among the best actor nominees, for his performance in “Top Gun: Maverick.” But he was left out. (The movie did receive a nomination for best drama.) Will Smith, vying for awards attention with “Emancipation,” also failed to make the list.


The stand-up comedian Jerrod Carmichael will host the Golden Globes ceremony, which is being held on a Tuesday (as opposed to its accustomed Sunday spot) to avoid NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.”


With a new interim chief executive, Todd Boehly, leading a turnaround effort, the HFPA has overhauled membership eligibility, recruited new members with an emphasis on diversity, enacted a stricter code of conduct and has moved to end its tax-exempt status and transform into a for-profit company with a philanthropic arm. Boehly is awaiting final governmental approval for that plan. Once it comes, he is expected to disband the HFPA and rebrand the charitable division.


The 96-member organization now has six Black members — up from zero — and has added 103 nonmember voters, a dozen or so of whom are Black. One member was recently kicked out for conduct violations, including fabricating quotes, which leaders of the group have cited as proof of their reformed ways.


Live awards shows, including the Oscars, have lost tens of millions of viewers over the past decade, but the biggest ceremonies still attract a larger audience than almost anything else on traditional television, aside from live sports. The most recent Golden Globes telecast, held without celebrity attendees in early 2021 because of the pandemic, attracted about 7 million viewers, according to Nielsen. Pre-pandemic, the show was attracting about 18 million viewers annually.
