The celebration of the Golden Globes 2023 revived the controversies that surround the delivery of these awards considered the prelude to the Oscars. However, despite the criticism, the lack of important artists and questions about their ethics, the nominees of this management stand out for their talent and their career, like Cate Blanchett, one of the favorites. What happened and what can happen from here on out? ?
The Golden Globes are delivered by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, an entity that was involved in controversies over representation issues and an alleged case of sexual abuse. In 2021, dozens of artists denounced the association for sexism and lack of diversity and representation among its members.
In the face of the scandal, the organization quickly announced a series of reforms, including an unprecedented recruitment of new members to improve minority representation within its ranks.
A CLOAK OF DOUBT
However, the artists disbelieved these changes. One of the loudest voices to speak out was Tom Cruise, who returned his awards for “Born on the 4th of July,” “Jerry Maguire” and “Magnolia.”
In addition, Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson joined, who warned that “unless there is a reform; It’s time for us to move on.” “As an actress, one is expected to participate in awards season by attending press conferences. This often meant facing sexist questions and comments from certain HFPA members that bordered on sexual harassment,” the actress denounced.
Amid the boycott and with stars refusing their awards, NBC last year canceled the broadcast that would have taken place in January. Instead, the gala was held at the Beverly Hilton without any nominees in attendance. The winners were announced on Twitter.
In 2018, Brendan Fraser said that Philip Berk, a member of the HFPA and former president of the organization, groped him at an event in 2003. The HFPA found that Berk “inappropriately touched” Fraser, but “intended to be taken as a joke and not as a sexual advance.”
“It’s because of the history I have with them,” Fraser told GQ magazine last month, explaining why he wouldn’t be attending. “My mother did not raise a hypocrite. You can call me many things, but not that,” said the American actor.
But, beyond the controversies that revolve around these awards, it is also a management loaded with critically acclaimed films and nominations for actors recognized for their careers.
“Tár” is one of the strongest candidates for the Golden Globes and the Oscars 2023, and could lead Cate Blanchett to win another well-deserved award for best actress.
Written and conducted by Todd Field, Tár tells the story of Lydia Tár, a renowned conductor and composer who becomes the first woman to conduct an orchestra in Germany. Lydia goes through a pivotal moment in her career and prepares to perform a feat no one has ever accomplished before, but her plans change and her life begins to unravel when someone files an accusation against her.
It is a long film (it lasts more than 3 hours), but it was built as a perfect symphony, where the tension is increasing and Cate Blanchett builds a complex and complicated character, who becomes a symbol of chaos, destruction and everything. what is wrong with the power dynamics in the world.
It is not an action movie or one of those supernatural mysteries that people like so much, but it is a work of art that invites reflection and that allows us to see a protagonist who destroys herself and who cannot find a way out of the disaster that she created herself. “Tár” is a work of art where music comes together, the great performances of its entire cast and a theme that is uncomfortable to watch, but important to tell.
