Hollywood Foreign Press Association sues Dick Clark Prods. over Golden Globes
Variety reports that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) has filed a lawsuit against Dick Clark Prods., seeking control over the Golden Globes telecast.
In the suit, which was filed in Los Angeles on Wednesday, the HFPA claims that Dick Clark Prods. ìhas taken great liberties with its accounting for revenue generated by the Golden Globes Awards shows,î and that it has attempted to ìproduce, create, or exploit digital rights, ancillary shows, sponsorships, and promotional campaignsî without the authority to do so.
The HFPA filed the lawsuit after Dick Clark Prods. allegedly signed an agreement with NBC on Oct. 29 to air the awards ceremony through 2018 without consulting the HFPA.
