Hollywood IGNORES the Golden Globes and the reason's not COVID!

It's a Golden Globes like never before.

The 79th edition of this once-prestigious awards ceremony does not have any of the glitter and glamour of the past.

No Hollywood stars are in attendance and the show is not being televised.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are not around to bring on the laughs either.

What we have instead is Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) President Helen Hoehne announcing the winners.

The HFPA has been in the eye of a storm after a Los Angeles Times's investigation last year revealed there were no black members on its 87-member voting panel. Calling out the organisation for its 'unethical behaviour', Hollywood has since stayed away from this awards ceremony, with stars like Tom Cruise even returning the three Globes he had won.
