Golden Globes come under fire just days before TV & film awards take place

 THE Golden Globes have come under fire days before the TV and film awards take place.

It is claimed 30 journalists were flown to Paris by studio bosses in 2019 and treated “like kings and queens” before TV series Emily in Paris was nominated for awards.

It is alleged Paramount put up members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which runs the event, in the £1,000-a-room Peninsula Paris hotel for two nights.

The Netflix series was later nominated for Best TV Series (Musical or Comedy) with star Lily Collins, 31, nominated for Best Performance in a Television Series (Musical or Comedy).

Ahead of this weekend’s ceremony, one HFPA member said: “There was a real backlash and rightly so — that show doesn’t belong on any best of 2020 list.


“It’s an example of why many of us say we need change.”

A probe by the LA Times looked at the “widespread perception that members can still be swayed with special attention”.

An HFPA representative said: “None of these allegations have ever been proven.”
