“Avengers” star Scarlett Johansson said the organizing body behind the awards needs “structural reform.”

One of Hollywood’s most prominent film and television awards has nowhere to be broadcast next year.

The US television network NBC announced on Monday that it will not broadcast the ceremony of the Golden Globes, after a controversy involving the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), in charge of the award.

The HFPA was singled out earlier this year by the lack of diversity among its members and for some behaviors that generated ethical questions.

The decision came despite the fact that the HFPA recently voted in favor of drastically transform its structure and rules.
