Every January the Golden Globe is awarded to Hollywood movies. This year "Traffic" won two Golden Globes. Who is the jury for this elite cultural prize?


The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, or, more specifically about 80 individuals, most of whom are from Latin America, Africa, The Middle East, Oceania and other exotic parts of the world, and who reside in Los Angeles and provide alien magazines with interviews, etc. of movie stars.

Why? Documentary film-maker Emma Wilcockson explains:

They are the very people whose livelihood depends on the continued hype of the movie industry. They report to the rest of the world on the entertainment industry in Hollywood. Without these people, the movie industry would have to survive on self-promotion, without the movies the HFPA would be out of jobs.
