The Golden Globe does not go to Brendan Fraser

nominations As for the Golden Globes 2023, it’s still a long way off, but Best Actor winner Brendan Fraser has made it clear that he intends to boycott the ceremony.

Fraser is expected to receive a category nomination for his dramatic acting role in Darren Aronofsky Whalea role that earned him the best reviews of his career and a five-minute standing ovation after the film was shown at the BFI London Film Festival.

“I have more history with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) than I have respect for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association,” he bluntly said.

“No, I will not participate. My mother did not raise a hypocrite. You can call me many things, but not this one.”

HFPA is the organization behind the Golden Globes.

For those who’ve followed Fraser’s roller coaster career, it’s clear why, and for those who haven’t, the ex-lover is referring to an incident that occurred in 2003.

In 2018, in a GQ profile, Fraser revealed – among many things – that he had been sexually assaulted by former president and HFPA member, Philip Burke.

Burke denied the allegation, while the HFPA claimed its internal investigation showed the alleged assault was a “prank” and allegedly made no apologies.

The incident was traumatic enough to cause Fraser to step back from Hollywood and the public eye for many years, right up until his recent career resurgence.

Fraser noted that he’s not the only person who has felt wronged by the group, so if the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were to issue an apology, “I expect it would be a good thing for them, too.”
