Celebrities were replaced with staff members representing non-profit organisations to announce winners of the Golden Globes on Sunday night.
The ceremony went ahead without an audience, famous faces or red carpet after stars including Scarlett Johansson called for a boycott of the ceremony due to the lack of diversity on the HFPA panel.
And instead of stars giving out and announcing the awards non-profit leaders such as Gold House Executive Director Jeremy Tran and SVP of the NAACP Hollywood Bureau Kyle Bowser took to the stage.

HFPA President Helen Hoehne and HFPA Chief Diversity Officer Neil Phillips completed the line up.
The group took to the stage in glamorous dresses and suits as they replaced the normally star-studded line up.
Jamie Lee Curtis and Arnold Schwarzenegger were the only two celebrity to appear digitally during the entire ceremony, as they had pre-recorded messages.

There were a range of non-profit organisations at the event, including Jeremy from Gold House which is a collective of Asian founders, creative voices and leaders dedicated to unifying Asians and Pacific Islanders.
Meanwhile the NAACP is a civil rights organisation in the US, formed in 1909 as an interracial endeavour to advance justice for African Americans.
The 2022 event took place behind closed doors at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, after The Hollywood Foreign Press Association came under fire for the lack of black representation among its members.
However, actress Jamie, 63, had filmed a pre-recorded message detailing the HFPA’s philanthropic efforts.
In the clip, the Halloween star said of the organisation’s charitable donations: ‘I am proud to be associated with them in this venture.

‘They do so at a very low key, off the record, evening of giving. I’ve been the lucky host of that evening a couple of times.
‘And so I just wanted to honour and stand with them in this continued advocacy of great need and great support that the HFPA continue to serve and offer with their generosity.’
Meanwhile, Arnold thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press for his 1977 New Star Of The Year award.

Introducing the award for Best Motion Picture – Drama, he said: ‘We’ve had the pleasure of seeing the most incredible philanthropic programmes supported by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
‘They understand to support the arts, one must cultivate new diverse voices. I was one of their beneficiaries.
‘When I was finished with my bodybuilding career and came to Hollywood to start my movie career, I often heard, “Arnold, you should change your last name because no one could pronounce it.” Then they told me I should get rid of my accent.
‘They said “no, no no”, always. The Hollywood Foreign Press said, “yes, yes yes.”

‘In 1977, I won the Golden Globe New Star of the Year award. This recognition by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association meant the world to me.’
The awards had no live broadcast or livestream as NBC previously announced that it would not televise the 2022 ceremony due to the lack of diversity, while Amazon Studios and Netflix announced plans to stop their activities with the HFPA until sufficient changes were made.
In May, NBC said in a statement: ‘We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform.
‘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.

‘Assuming the organisation executes on its plan, we are hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023.’
Staff members representing various non-profits supported by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were on hand to announce winners on Sunday’s ceremony.
It was revealed Tuesday by Variety that the Globes’ talent booker reached out to several publicity agencies about getting celebrity presenters, but no celebs agreed to take part.
HFPA president Helen Hoehne, gave a speech focusing on the organisation’s attempts to diversify and a focus on its philanthropy work after a controversial year which culminated in last year’s televised ceremony suffering a 60% drop in viewers.
‘Last year the Hollywood Foreign Press Association was challenged to change – and we did,’ said Hoehne. ‘Both internally, within the Association, as well as adding 21 members to bring fresh perspectives.
‘We are on a journey of change and we’re not going to rest. We are going to be outspoken about what we’re learning and challenge others to join us.’
Kyle Bowser, senior vice-president of the NAACP Hollywood Bureau, spoke of the ‘Reimagine Coalition,’ a joint five-year initiative to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion across the global entertainment industry. ‘Imagination is the currency that sustains and propels the entertainment industries,’ he said during the ceremony.
A series of LA Times investigations last year revealed the lack of diversity in the HFPA’s voting membership. His expose reported that the 2021 voting panel did not include any black members.

In response to the LA Times article, the HPFA introduced a series of new bylaws and in October 2021, appointed 21 new voters to their board and created a new board of directors.
The organisation reports that it is the largest and most diverse class of new members in its history. They report that six of the new members are black, 10 are women, six are Latinx, five are Asian and four are Middle Eastern/North African.
They also announced they hoped by 2023, the ethnic-minority of membership of the HFPA will have increased by 50%.
Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson were the stars leading calls for a Golden Globes boycott, with Scarlett saying she had faced ‘sexist questions and remarks by certain HFPA members that bordered on sexual harassment.’
She released a statement last year that read: ‘As an actor promoting a film, one is expected to participate in awards season by attending press conferences as well as awards shows.
‘In the past, this has often meant facing sexist questions and remarks by certain HFPA members that bordered on sexual harassment. It is the exact reason why I, for many years, refused to participate in their conferences.’
She continued: ‘Unless there is necessary fundamental reform within the organisation, I believe it is time that we take a step back from the HFPA and focus on the importance and strength of unity within our unions and the industry as a whole’.
This year’s nominations included nine people of colour across the acting and directing categories – the same number as for the 2021 awards.
