UPDATE 1-NBC won't air 2022 Golden Globes after ethics, diversity complaints

    LOS ANGELES, May 10 (Reuters) - U.S. television network NBC
said on Monday it will not broadcast Hollywood's Golden Globes
ceremony in 2022 following complaints about ethical lapses and
lack of diversity among the group that hands out the annual
awards for film and television.
    The decision came despite a plan approved last week by the
small Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which hands
out the awards, to recruit more Black members and make other
changes over the next year.
    NBC said in a statement on Monday that the reforms were not
quick enough.
    "Change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel
strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right. As such, NBC
will not air the 2022 Golden Globes," NBC said.
    "Assuming the organization executes on its plan, we are
hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January
2023," the statement added.
    The HFPA did not immediately return a request for comment.
    The annual Golden Globe ceremony has become one of the
biggest Hollywood awards shows in the run-up to the Oscars.
    The moves follow an investigation published in February by
the Los Angeles Times that noted there were no Black people
currently in the HFPA. The newspaper also raised long-standing
ethical questions over the close relationships between the HFPA
and movie studios that may influence the choice of Golden Globe
nominees and winners.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL1N2MT2V6
