CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP/AP Modified) – The 80th annual Golden Globes will feature a few nominees from Massachusetts.

Comedian Jerrod Carmichael will be the solo host of the awards. He won an Emmy in 2022 year for his intimate HBO special “Rothaniel,” a stand-up special in which he revealed that he is gay.
The 2021 Golden Globes was not broadcasted after a decision announced by NBC following the publication of an L.A. Times report that highlighted a lack of diversity among the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s voting body.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has since reorganized itself, revamped its membership, and enacted reforms designed to curtail the kinds of unethical behavior the group has long been criticized for. New members include six Black voting members and 103 international, nonmember voters. The voting body is now 52% female, 19.5% Latino, 12% Asian, 10% Black and 10% Middle Eastern.
“We recognize the HFPA’s commitment to ongoing change and look forward to welcoming back the Golden Globes to NBC for its landmark 80th Anniversary in January 2023,” said Frances Berwick, chairman of entertainment networks for NBCUniversal.
The film nominees included eight people of color among the 30 acting individual acting nominees. No woman was nominated for best director, with nods instead going to Spielberg, Cameron, McDonagh, Luhrmann and Kwan and Scheinert, the filmmaking duo known as “the Daniels.” None of the films up for best picture in either category was directed by women.

- The Banshees of Inisherin
