The celebration of stars will continue! ET has learned the Hollywood Foreign Press Association plans to recognize the outstanding acting performances of the past year at the 79th Annual Golden Globes.
HFPA intends to celebrate the great work of the industry over the past year sometime in 2022 -- even if there's no broadcasted ceremony for the event. There were no additional details to share on when or how the presentation of any awards will happen.
According to Variety, the HFPA sent out a letter to studios detailing the eligibility requirements for submitting nominees for consideration.
"We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform," NBCUniversal said in a statement at the time. "However, 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."
In a separate statement, the HFPA responded, "Regardless of the next air date of the Golden Globes, implementing transformational changes as quickly -- and as thoughtfully -- as possible remains the top priority for our organization."
The organization subsequently implemented new rules for members, added 21 new members, of which nearly 30 percent were Black journalists, and banned members from accepting gifts of any kind from studios, filmmakers or actors.
