TheWrap Predicts the 2023 Golden Globes Winners
Tuesday night will be the 80th Golden Globe Awards, and the 31st to be televised by NBC. Will it also be the last on the network, or any network?
That’s the question hanging over the 2023 Globes, the first since 1962 that takes place on Tuesday. A year after the longtime Globes network pulled the plug on the deal and refused to televise the 2022 telecast, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is getting another chance to show it has recovered from the lack of diversity and ethical blunders that caused Hollywood to turn around. the back.
But it’s hardly a show of faith that the network has given the newly privatized HFPA a one-year contract and set the show on a quiet school night rather than the usual slightly fizzy Sunday night. The network is watching carefully to see who shows up, who says what and how much credibility the awards have in 2023.
Other changes: The Beverly Hilton won’t host wall-to-wall parties as it has in years past, and Tuesday night’s winners can show off the influence of more than 100 international critics who have been recruited not to join the HFPA but to serve as no-show voters. members and in the process of doubling the number of voters.
That makes forecasting the globe harder than it was in the days when you only had to understand the passions and blind spots of 80 or 90 LA-based, full-time or part-time foreign media reporters. Now they make up only half of the voters; for every voter in Los Angeles, there’s someone else who lives in a foreign country and doesn’t show up at HFPA conferences or press receptions.
Will this hurt the mostly American nominees? (Elvis never toured outside the U.S.; will “Elvis” have travel issues, too?) And will acts who have publicly shunned the HFPA lose votes, or will the organization want to show they’re above it? complaints giving awards to Tom Cruise (who returned his Globes) for “Top Gun: Maverick” or Brendan Fraser (who has said he won’t attend) for “The Whale?”
Here are our guesses, in a year in which who wins will certainly matter less than whether the HFPA walks away from the show with any sense of being on a comeback.
