79th Annual Golden Globe Awards Announce Winners At Non-Televised Ceremony

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) tonight announced the winners of the 79th Annual Golden Globe Awards® from the Beverly Hilton. In addition to recognizing 2021’s best in film and television, this year, the Golden Globe Awards shined a light on the long-established philanthropy work of the HFPA, amplifying a range of grantees during the program.

HFPA President Helen Hoehne opened the ceremony and welcomed attendees composed of select HFPA members and grantees. For 25 years, the HFPA has donated over $50 million to more than 70 entertainment-related charities, film restoration, scholarship programs and humanitarian efforts; incredibly impactful organizations, many of whom were hit hard over the last two years as a result of the pandemic. The evening honored the achievements of the grantees as well.

During the ceremony, in addition to spotlighting a wide variety of HFPA-supported nonprofit partners, four organizations – Get Lit, Streetlights, St. Elmo Village, and Las Fotos – were honored through individual video vignettes. A full list of 2021-22 HFPA grant recipients can be found at the end of this press release. 

  • Streetlights — Supported by the HFPA for over a decade, Streetlights acts as a job training, job placement and career advancement organization. Its mission is to create careers, not just jobs, for underrepresented young women and men from diverse backgrounds, while increasing diversity throughout the entertainment industry. When students graduate from the first four weeks of training, they are placed in jobs such as production assistants, a traditional stepping stone.
  • Get Lit — Supported by the HFPA since 2018, Get Lit uses poetry to increase literacy, empower youth, and inspire communities. The organization cultivates enthusiastic learners emboldened to inspire social consciousness in diverse communities. Get Lit’s poetry and film curriculum engages young people by providing a creative outlet, community, and real-life work experience, transforming students into activists, scholars, and stars.
  • Las Fotos Project — Supported by the HFPA since 2019, this community-based organization inspires teenage girls and gender-expansive youth through photography, mentorship, and self-expression. Offering year-round programming, Las Fotos provides girls with access to professional cameras, quality instruction and workshops that encourage them to explore their identity, build leadership and advocacy skills, and strengthen their social and emotional well-being.
  • St. Elmo Village — A new grantee, St. Elmo Village houses free workshops in drawing and painting for children, as well as photography and computer graphics for young adults. They offer an arts and music library, community reading room, and music festivals not only for its surrounding neighborhood but the entire Los Angeles community. 

Over the last eight months, the HFPA has completely overhauled their bylaws, implementing sweeping changes from top to bottom that address ethics and code of conduct, diversity, equity and inclusion, governance, membership and more. In October, the HFPA admitted their largest and most diverse class to date of 21 new members, all of whom were first-time Golden Globe voters. A full list of the HFPA’s reforms can be found here.

The health and safety of guests is top priority for the HFPA. Proof of vaccination and booster, along with a negative PCR test was required for anyone in attendance. All guests were masked and socially distanced at all times.
