It is unclear whether the Golden Globes will air on NBC in 2023, despite an initial report published by The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday.

The ceremony, which honors film and television's best actors, is reportedly in talks with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) to return to the network next year; however, it is "not a done deal," a source familiar with the matter told Deadline. An insider shared a similar sentiment with The Wrap.

A HFPA spokesperson and a spokesperson for NBC declined to comment.

HFPA Votes to Sell Golden Globes to Interim CEO Todd Boehly and Shed Non-Profit Status

  HFPA Votes to Sell Golden Globes to Interim CEO Todd Boehly and Shed Non-Profit Status The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has shed its non-profit status and agreed to sell the Golden Globes to acting CEO Todd Boehly's Eldridge Industries and turn the embattled organization into a private venture, the HFPA announced Thursday. The sale's proposal from Eldridge Industries LLC, which is founded and chaired by the billionaire Boehly, creates a private entity to manage its Golden Globes assets, according to the announcement, while its charitable and philanthropic programs will be preserved in a separate non-profit entity.

The award show's rumored television comeback comes after the HPFA — a small group of international journalists that determines the nominees and winners of the Golden Globe Awards each year — was widely criticized for its lack of representation among its members after the Los Angeles Times published an exposé in February 2021, in which it was revealed there were zero members of the organization that were Black.

How Social Media Is Reacting To NBC Possibly Giving Up Primetime Hour: “Bring Back Jay Leno” .
Bring back the old timecode. Or better yet, give the slot to Jay Leno. As usual, social media has a cynical reaction to the news that NBC may give back the third hour of primetime to its affiliates.
