It’s not uncommon for awards winners to get political in their speeches, but this year a lot of presenters and winners took swipes at the Golden Globes themselves, calling out the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for not having a single Black member in its ranks. The jokes started out early, with co-host Tina Fey blasting the HFPA’s “around 90 international no black journalists.” Amy Poehler then added, “We say around 90 because a couple of them might be ghosts.” Then there were “This is Us” stars Sterling K. Brown and Susan Kelechi Watson as they presented a pair of awards. Brown said “It is great to Black…back! At the Golden Globes.” Kelechi Watson added that it’s not just great to be Black at the Globes but to be Black anywhere.

Hollywood bigwigs like Ava DuVernay, Judd Apatow and Shonda Rhimes joined in posting statements calling for more diversity, leading the organization to voice a commitment to diversify. On Sunday’s show, HFPA member Helen Hoehne said on stage, “Tonight, while we celebrate the work of artists from around the globe, we recognize that we have our own work to do. Just like in film and television, Black representation is vital. We must have Black journalists in our organization.” HFPA president Ali Sar added, “That means creating an environment where diverse membership is the norm, not the exception. Thank you and we look forward to a more inclusive future.” Also Read: Golden Globes Officials Promise 'More Inclusive Future' Amid Outcry Over Lack of Black Members Though he didn’t mention Black members specifically, Dan Levy said during his acceptance speech for “Schitt’s Creek” why diversity even on awards show is so crucial. “In the spirit of inclusion I hope that this time next year the ceremony reflects the true breadth and diversity of film and television being made today, because there is so much more to be celebrated,” he said. Jane Fonda, in accepting her Lifetime Achievement Award, echoed that sentiment, talking about how shows like “Ramy” and films like “Judas and the Black Messiah” have opened her up to new perspectives. “Stories they really can change people. But there’s a story that we’ve been afraid to see and hear about ourselves in this industry. The story about which voices we respect and elevate and which we tune out. The story about who’s offered a seat at the table and who is left out of the room,” Fonda said. “So let’s all of us — including the groups that decide who gets hired and what gets made and who wins awards — let’s all of us make an effort to expand that tent so everyone rises and everyone’s story has a chance to be seen and heard.” She continued: “Doing this simply means acknowledging what is true, being in step with the emerging diversity that is happening due to all those who marched in and fought in the past and picked up the baton today. After all, art has always not just been in step with history but lead the way. So let’s be leaders.” Read original story Golden Globes: Here’s All the Shade Thrown at HFPA Over No Black Members At TheWrap
