After taking a year off, the Golden Globe awards show returned to NBC on Tuesday, making its best attempt to appear not racist. However, this year’s host Jerrod Carmichael refused to let them sweep their previous racism accusations under the rug.
In 2021, the 87-person Hollywood Foreign Press Association found itself at the center of a major controversy after it was exposed for having no Black members. As stars denounced the group’s award show, NBC took it off the air in 2022.
In an attempted comeback this year, the ceremony saw the lowest ratings ever on NBC, which were down more than 26% from its last airing in 2021.
