American Television producer, Shonda Rhimes who is known for bankrolling several hit projects including Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and more, took to her Twitter handle and wrote:

The statement shared by NBC says that they continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform. However, according to them, a change of this magnitude takes time and work. NBC strongly feels that HFPA needs time to make it right and in such circumstances, they will refrain from airing the Golden Globes 2022. But the organization hopes that it will be in a position to air the show in January 2023.
