Other important things to remember from the 2024 Golden Globe Awards: “Succession” seals the deal
The Golden Globes were helpful because they helped “Oppenheimer” and “Poor Things” with their Oscar campaigns and started the farewell tour for “Succession.”
However, Sunday’s televised ceremony also reinforced the idea that Hollywood has difficulty saying goodbye to people who give it awards.
The 81st Golden Globes ceremony occurred, but similarities to earlier events should be noted with a warning. That’s because the Globes have gone through significant changes as an organization. They got rid of the scandal-plagued Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.
(HFPA) and set up a new, improved voting group with more members under the direction of Dick Clark Productions.
Only some people got the message, though. Three of the winners thanked the HFPA, and Robert Downey Jr. was the only winner to directly mention the scandal when he thanked the Globes for cleaning up its act.
