The Golden Globes will not air on NBC in 2022 following reported concerns surrounding the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Concerns over the group began after the Los Angeles Times reported an investigation that found there was no black people currently registered as members.

The investigation also raised concerns surrounding the HFPA and its close relationship with film studios.

The HFPA has since attempted to be more diverse, including the hiring of a diversity officer.

Several celebrities have since denounced the HFPA, including Scarlett Johansson, who said the group was "legitimized by Harvey Weinstein."

Other celebrities who denounced the group include Mark Ruffalo, who said a statement on Friday that he "cannot feel proud or happy about being a recipient of [a Golden Globe]," and that "now is the time to step up and right the wrongs of the past."

"The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is made up of around 90 international no-black journalists who attend movie junkets each year in search of a better life," actress Tina Fey said on the matter.

"We say around 90 because a couple of them might be ghosts, and it's rumored that the German member is just a sausage that somebody drew a little face on."
