Publicists Press HFPA For Lack Of Black Members ; Threaten To Urge Shoppers To Not Present For Golden Globes

In a letter addressed to HFPA COO Greg Goecker and Board Chair Meher Tatna, a collective of Hollywood publicists in the present day warned the group it had higher make significant modifications, or danger them telling their star purchasers to avoid the Golden Globes. The HFPA, by no means probably the most credible of organizations, is often the topic of an expose each few years. This 12 months was a doozy, with the LA Occasions uncovering that the group didn’t have a single Black member. Whereas HFPA heads have repeatedly pledged it has heard the criticism and would change, there may be skepticism, with strain even reaching NBCUniversal and Comcast as a result of the Globes are a primetime broadcast and contours the pockets of the doubtful group. The PR corporations have despatched the letter to press. Right here it’s.

As publicists we collectively characterize the overwhelming majority of artists within the leisure trade.
We name on the Hollywood Overseas Press Affiliation to swiftly manifest profound and lasting change to eradicate the longstanding exclusionary ethos and pervasive observe of discriminatory conduct, unprofessionalism, moral impropriety and alleged monetary corruption endemic to the HFPA, funded by Dick Clark Productions, MRC, NBCUniversal and Comcast.

Within the final decade our trade has confronted a seismic reckoning and begun to handle its failure to mirror and honor the variety of our neighborhood, but now we have witnessed no acceptance of accountability, accountability or motion from the HFPA, at the same time as systemic inequity and egregious conduct are allowed to proceed. We collectively and unequivocally agree that transformative change in your group and its historic practices is important and fully achievable. We wish to be a part of the answer.

To mirror how pressing and vital we really feel this work is, we can not advocate for our purchasers to take part in HFPA occasions or interviews as we await your express plans and timeline for transformational change.
Whereas we stand able to assist your good religion efforts, please know that something lower than clear,
significant change that respects and honors the variety and dignity of our purchasers, their colleagues and our world viewers will lead to instant and irreparable harm to the connection between our companies, our purchasers and the Hollywood Overseas Press Affiliation and those that sanction the institutional inequity and insular tradition that presently outline it.

The eyes of the trade and those that assist it are watching.
