Tom Cruise returns Golden Globe awards. American actor Tom Cruise returned previously received Golden Globe awards to the Foreign Journalists’ Association in protest against the lack of diversity in the American public jury, knowledgeable sources told CNN.
As the TV channel notes, Cruise won the Golden Globe three times during his career: in 1990, for the role of veteran Ron Kovik in the film Born on the Fourth of July, 1989, in 1997 for the role of sports agent Jerry Maguire in the film of the same name (Jerry Maguire, 1996), and in 2000, Cruise was awarded the Best Supporting Actor award in the film “Magnolia” (Magnolia, 1999), reports TASS .
On Monday, NBC, which traditionally broadcasted the Golden Globes, said it would not do so in 2022 because the jury did not adequately reflect the diversity of American society. At the same time, the TV channel expressed its readiness to broadcast in 2023, if the corresponding changes are made to the jury.
In March, the organizers of the Golden Globe promised to increase the number of blacks in the team. In September 2020, the American Film Academy unveiled new standards for films to be nominated for Best Picture: one of the main characters or supporting characters must be Black, Asian, Hispanic, Middle Eastern or other ethnic group. However, at least 30% of the cast of the film must be women, ethnic representatives, LGBT people or people with disabilities.
