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.
