The 80th annual Golden Globes ceremony is due to make a star-studded return following 2022’s muted ceremony due to diversity and ethics scandals.
Globes aim to return as party of the year
A year after Hollywood boycotted the Golden Globes, Brad Pitt, Steven Spielberg and other big names are set to return as organisers try to restore the lustre to what had been one of the biggest stops on the industry’s awards circuit.
Most of this year’s nominees are expected to attend the red-carpet ceremony in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, said Helen Hoehne, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the group that hands out the Globes.
“We’ve gotten a really great response from the nominees,” said Hoehne, a German journalist elected in late 2021 to lead the group through diversity and ethics scandals. “We have very few not coming, so we are thrilled.”
She vowed the night would be “the party of the year”.
