The NBC television channel had even given up broadcasting the ceremony, traditionally the second most followed after the Oscars.

“We have made a decision to move forward, transform and adapt in the face of increasingly strong competition between (film) awards ceremonies and in the journalism market,” said in a press release. Helen Hoehne, President of the HFPA.

The latter will remain a non-profit organization, while a company will be created to manage the Golden Globes.

At its head, Todd Boehly, an American businessman. He owns major stakes in British soccer club Chelsea and the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team.
