NBC bails out of Golden Globes — Streaming, or House cleaning?

Reforming the fast, loose, pocket stuffing elders of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has proven to be nigh on impossible over the decades.

The terrible ratings of the 2021 pandemic Gloves should have made this a no brainer. They have all the leverage, why didn’t they do better than they did with Trump, Matt Lauer and other network scandals over the years?

But renewed pressure on slow to act NBC has turned the tide. The Peacock is not broadcasting a ceremony in 2022.

This came on the same day that Tom Cruise sent his Globe trophies back to the racist, sexist and corrupt old boys’ club.

Will the HFPA, which has gotten fat on broadcast bucks and exaggerated clout based on the awards, stand down clean house and put on something with a more professional presence behind the screen?

Stay tuned.
