The Golden Globes has added 11 new members, bringing its total voting body to 300 people and 60% diversity, the organization announced Monday.
“Our commitment to maintaining the diversity of our voting body continues,” said Helen Hoehne, president of the Golden Globes, in a statement. “Our voters represent 76 countries bringing a unique international perspective on nominating the best in motion pictures and television this year.”
The 300-person voting body is 47% female and 60% racially and ethnically diverse, including 26.3% Latinx, 13.3% Asian, 11% Black and 9% Middle Eastern. Voters come from countries like Armenia, Cameroon, Costa Rica, Cuba, Guatemala, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Serbia and Tanzania.
Among the 11 new members are Elsa Keslassy, Variety’s executive editor of international, and Naman Ramachandran, Variety’s South Asia/United Kingdom international reporter.
“I was very impressed by the number of global applicants and the quality of their work,” said Tim Gray, executive vice president of Golden Globes, in a statement. “The membership committee had a tough time narrowing down the field, but we’re all pleased with the results.”
The new 11 members include:
Trinidad Barleycorn (Switzerland)
Paola Casella (Italy)
Ankit Jhunjhunwala (Canada)
Sona Karapoghosyan (Armenia)
Elsa Keslassy (France)
Wael Khairy (Egypt)
Juan Claudio Matossian Güell (Spain)
Zac Ntim (United Kingdom)
Naman Ramachandran (United Kingdom)
Mohammed Rouda (Egypt)
Amon Warmann (United Kingdom)
The increased diversity and membership follows an overhaul of the Golden Globes and a shuttering of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Dick Clark Productions and Todd Boehly’s Eldridge acquired the awards show earlier this year. Eldridge and Variety parent PMC own Dick Clark Productions in a joint venture. In 2021, the HFPA came under fire after it was revealed to not have any Black members among its then-87 members going back two decades.
Last week, the Golden Globes expelled three members for conduct violations, and 15 more voters left the organization.
The 81st Golden Globes will take place Jan. 7, 2024. Nominations will be announced Dec. 11, 2023. Two new categories have been added for the upcoming show: the Golden Globe for Cinematic and Box Office Achievement and Best Performance in Stand-Up Comedy on Television.
Producing duo Glenn Weiss and Ricky Kirshner will serve as executive producing showrunners for the Golden Globes, with Weiss also set to direct.
