HFPA Members Were Reportedly Spoiled by 'Emily in Paris' Team Ahead of Golden Globe Nominations Reveal

Social media users weren’t impressed by the nominations that were garnered by Lily Collins and Emily in Paris for the 2021 Golden Globes, and this new report won’t make them any happier.

According to a report, via US Weekly, it’s said that HFPA voters were flown out to the set and spoiled by the team there.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that more than 30 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were flown out to visit the set while it was filming in 2019.

It also revealed that the group were treated to two nights at the five-star Peninsula Paris hotel, “where rooms currently start at about $1,400 a night” and they also attended a meeting and lunch at the historic and private Musée des Arts Forains.

“They treated us like kings and queens,” one HFPA member who participated in the press trip told the publication.

Non-HFPA members, including critics and other media personnel, were also invited to the event. However, HFPA rules forbid members from accepting gifts valued at over $125 from studios or producers.

Another studio source spoke to US Weekly and added that the members who attended weren’t flown out on HFPA’s ticket. They did stay at the hotel, but under a group rate and the trip followed all usual protocols.

The show and Lily were surprise nominees on the Golden Globes list for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy, and Best Actress.

“There was a real backlash and rightly so — that show doesn’t belong on any best of 2020 list,” an anonymous HFPA member shared with the LA Times of the nominations. “It’s an example of why many of us say we need change. If we continue to do this, we invite criticism and derision.”

Previously, one of the writers on Emily in Paris spoke out about I May Destroy You not getting recognition.
