‘It will be an intimate affair and we are fine with it’ – Golden Globes boycott not true, organiser says

Talk of a boycott from this year’s scandal-hit Golden Globes isn’t strictly true insists the organisation which runs them.

Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) president Helen Hoehne has told Sky News the decision to hold a pared-back ceremony this weekend is in fact the group’s “sensitive” response to the criticism its faced over the last 12 months, in relation to those who’ve questioned their ethics (accepting free gifts and trips) and the group’s lack of diversity – rather than any failure to secure a broadcaster or persuade nominated talent to attend.
