With the 80th annual Golden Globes Awards set to return to NBC on Jan. 10, 2023, following a one-year break after the awards’ parent organization, The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, was beset with legal and diversity issues, questions remain which Hollywood stars will actually attend the event.
