Golden Globes to air on NBC
As it became clear the dispute over television rights for the Golden Globes wouldn’t be settled in time to prepare next year’s broadcast, a deal was brokered. While the face-off between the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Dick Clark Productions has been delayed until the start of October, the HFPA has confirmed that the two organizations made a one-year deal with NBC to broadcast the event on Jan. 15, 2012. The non-jury trial, which is expected to take about two weeks, was also handed over to Judge A. Howard Matz, a senior judge of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. Though there have been rumors about an out-of-court settlement, HFPA sources denied that possibility.
