“We have a wonderful working relationship with Jesse and Dionne, who are tremendous creatives and producers and we look forward to partnering with them on this year’s Golden Globes as we officially kick off awards season in 2023,” said dick clark productions President Adam Stotsky.
The trophy show is returning to longtime Globes broadcaster NBC in a renegotiated one-year deal.

NBC canceled the Globes last year as HFPA struggled to reform itself to the satisfaction of Hollywood studios and stakeholders. The awards show had been on shaky footing since it was revealed just before the semi-virtual February 2021 ceremony that the HFPA had no Black members. The group promised numerous reforms, including a commitment to “at least 13% Black membership” after many publicists threatened to urge clients to not show up for Golden Globes. The organization has since added 103 new voters to its ranks, marking the first time voters based outside the U.S. have been added to the voting pool, representing 62 countries. Combined with the current HFPA membership, the total Golden Globe Awards voting body is now 52% female, 51.5% racially and ethnically diverse, with 19.5% Latinx, 12% Asian, 10% Black and 10% Middle Eastern, HFPA said.
The Golden Globe Awards are produced by dick clark productions.
