Did Emily In Paris ‘buy’ Golden Globe nominations? Makers of Netflix show hit back at ‘unfair’ claims it received awards nod after treating judges to luxurious set visit

  • A source said the claims are ‘unfair’ and  the Netflix show is ‘hugely successful’
  • The show is up for best series, with star Lily Collins nominated for best actress 
  • The voting body behind the Golden Globes came under fire after nominating the Netflix romp instead of critical darlings like HBO’s I May Destroy You

The makers of Emily in Paris have hit back at ‘unfair’ claims that it received Golden Globe nominations after treating the judges to a luxurious set visit.

The comedy-drama show is up for best series and Lily Collins is nominated for best actress.

It was claimed this week that inviting 30 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) – which votes for the Globes – on a trip to visit the set in Paris had been an ‘ethical conflict’.

They stayed at a five-star hotel on behalf of the original production company Paramount, according to the LA Times

During the trip the group was reportedly treated to two nights at the $1400-a-night, five-star Peninsula Paris hotel as well as a meeting and lunch at the historic and private Musée des Arts Forains, all courtesy of Paramount Network.

Though HFPA members weren’t the only ones who attended according to the Times’ sources, their organization’s rules specifically forbid members from accepting gifts from producers or studios that are worth more than $125. 

But a source close to the production told Insider: ‘It’s unfair to say the conference is why the nominations came through.’ They added that the Netflix show is ‘hugely successful’.

 Adding to the controversy, black actress Michaela Coel’s acclaimed BBC drama I May Destroy You was snubbed. And the HFPA admitted that it had no black voters on its nominations panel.

Both critics and casual culture connoisseurs were surprised to see Emily star Lily Collins and the Darren Star-created series earn nods while things like Michaela Coel’s I May Destroy You and Black ensemble casts like Da 5 Bloods, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Judas And The Black Messiah, and One Night In Miami were overlooked in the main categories.
