More Hollywood A-listers are joining Time’s Up calling out the Golden Globes after the Hollywood Foreign Press Association vowed to include more “Black members” into their organization. On Sunday, Jennifer Aniston, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Mark Ruffalo joined a chorus of other celebrities who have spoken out about the lack of racial diversity within the HFPA.
In a social media post on Friday, Time’s Up wrote, “A cosmetic fix isn’t enough. #TIMESUPGlobes #TIMESUP.”
“Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Not a single Black member out of 87,” the post read, which included a cracked Golden Globe trophy.
Time’s Up’s actions come after an investigation by the Los Angeles Times brought awareness to the fact that the HFPA’s 87-member group of international journalists currently has no Black members. When nominations were announced, the HFPA was criticized for not including any Black-led movies, like “One Night in Miami”, “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”, “Da 5 Bloods” or “Judas and the Black Messiah”, in the Best Picture category.

Ahead of the 2021 Golden Globes on Sunday, the HFPA released a statement to the press on Friday.
“We are fully committed to ensuring our membership is reflective of the communities around the world who love film, TV and the artists inspiring and educating them,” the statement read. “We understand that we need to bring in Black members, as well as members from other underrepresented backgrounds, and we will immediately work to implement an action plan to achieve these goals as soon as possible.”
Many celebrities echoed Time’s Up’s sentiment. On Friday, Ava DuVernay tweeted, “Old news. New energy.”
