Time's Up calls out Golden Globes for lack of Black members, stars join protest


Time’s up for the 2021 Golden Globes.

The awards show, which is set to air on Sunday on NBC, has received sharp criticism for its lack of Black members in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the group responsible for nominees.

The protest campaign was launched by the organization Time’s Up with the campaign #TimesUpGlobes.

“A cosmetic fix isn’t enough,” the group tweeted.

A chorus of Hollywood stars quickly joined the movement and echoed its message including Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington, Justin Timberlake, and Amy Schumer.

Film director and comedian Judd Apatow weighed in writing, “So many crazy things about the @goldenglobes and the Hollywood Foreign press but this is awful. #timesupglobes.”

American filmmaker Ava DuVernay noted it was “Old News. New energy.”

“This Is Us” actor Sterling K. Brown, who is also a presenter at Sunday’s show, posted the Time’s Up photo, writing: “For any governing body of a current Hollywood award show to have such a lack of voting representation illustrates a level of irresponsibility that should not be ignored,” he said.
