It’s the woke thing to do. There’s a new report that says Tom Cruise returned three of his Golden Globes to join the protest after the HFPA. NBC canceled the Golden Globes for 2022, as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association continues to be criticized for their lack of diversity as they struggle to reform to Hollywood’s new stipulations. Here’s what you need to know.
The trophies just sent to HFPA headquarters are the Best Actor prize he won for Jerry Maguire, the Best Actor prize he won for Born on the Fourth of July and the Best Supporting Actor prize he won for Magnolia.
Tom Cruise Returns His Golden Globe Awards
NBC’s decision came despite the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which hands out the awards, agreeing to recruit more Black members and make other changes over the next 18 months.
At first, NBC agreed to the plan but later said it would wait to see if the reforms worked, Apparently, HFPA members have also been accused of making sexist and racist remarks and soliciting favors from celebrities and studios. Yikes.
“Change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right. As such, NBC will not air the 2022 Golden Globes,” NBC said in a statement.
The network added, “Assuming the organization executes on its plan, we are hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023.”
So far Tom Cruise himself has not made any comments about the matter, but many believe that other actors will follow suit and return their Golden Globes just as he did. Watch this space as there is certainly more news to come.
