TIME’S UP Commends Hollywood Publicists for Holding HFPA Accountable

Culture, Entertainment, Equity, Golden Globes


Tonight, over 100 Hollywood public relations firms issued a letter, urging the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to “swiftly manifest profound and lasting change” to address institutional inequity, discriminatory and unprofessional behavior, and alleged financial corruption at the organization.

To reiterate the urgency for change, publicists immediately suspended participation in any HFPA events until explicit and transparent changes are detailed by the organization.

Tina Tchen, president and CEO of TIME’S UP, responded with the following statement:

“We are proud to be in solidarity with the voices of over 100 Hollywood PR firms in calling for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to radically transform the Golden Globes. We agree that anything less than transparent, meaningful change will no longer be acceptable. The entire world is watching.” #TIMESUPGlobes
