TIME’S UP to HFPA: “The Clock is Ticking”

Culture, Entertainment, Equity, Power


Moments ago, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) issued a statement, outlining the initial steps it will take to build a more inclusive organization. The statement follows a Los Angeles Times’ investigation, which uncovered a culture of corruption at the embattled organization.

Tina Tchen, president and CEO of TIME’S UP Foundation, shared the following statement:

“So NBCUniversal, Dick Clark Productions, and the HFPA just declared that they have a plan to fix problems they’ve ignored for decades. We’re not so sure. On behalf of the many artists who look to us to hold the HFPA’s feet to the fire on the racism, disrespect, misogyny, and alleged corrupt financial dealings of the Golden Globes, we need to see specific details, timetables for change, and firm commitments. The right words are not enough. The clock is ticking.”
