'Emily in Paris' Producers Accused of Bribing Their Way Into Golden Globes Nominations

A report states that over 30 members were sent on a lavish press trip to France in 2019.

Earlier this month, Netflix‘s Emily in Paris was nominated for two Golden Globes, leaving many confused for leaving out notable successes like I May Destroy You and Minari. A new report by the Los Angeles Times reveals that over 30 Golden Globe voters were actually bribed by creators of the much-talked-about series starring Lily Collins.

According to the news outlet, members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) were sent on a lavish press trip to the show’s set in France back in 2019 by Paramount Network. It included a “two-night stay at the five-star Peninsula Paris hotel, where rooms currently start at about $1,400 USD a night, and a news conference and lunch at the Musée des Arts Forains, a private museum filled with amusement rides dating to 1850 where the show was shooting.” An unnamed individual shared that the group of voters were treated like “kings and queens” while they were there.

An additional member, who declined to join the luxurious Paris trip, stated that “there was a real backlash and rightly so — that show doesn’t belong on any best of 2020 list… It’s an example of why many of us say we need change. If we continue to do this, we invite criticism and derision.”

You can head over to Twitter to learn more about the report.
