Netflix-Weinstein Co. Joint Golden Globes Party Discontinued
One of the most prominent Golden Globes afterparties is no more.
Netflix and The Weinstein Co. co-hosted a black-tie bash in a tent adjacent to the Beverly Hilton, where the Globes ceremony takes place, in January of 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. It was one of the more coveted tickets of a night packed with parties, in part because many of the biggest names from film, television and media — from Bono and Jennifer Lopez to Jeff Bezos — could be counted on to show up and rub shoulders with hosts Ted Sarandos, Bob Weinstein and Harvey Weinstein.
But the two companies' fortunes have flipped in a major way since the partnership first began, with Netflix now flush with cash and TWC now hanging on for dear life in the wake of a slew of sexual-abuse allegations against Harvey Weinstein, who was fired by TWC's board in October. It seems unlikely that TWC would be in a financial position to continue the partnership with Netflix on the night of the 75th Golden Globes on Jan. 7, 2018, even if Netflix wanted to — but the streaming powerhouse does not.
A Netflix spokesperson tells THR, "We have no plans to partner with other studios for upcoming events."
