Future Uncertain for Exiled Golden Globes Member as HFPA Attempts Rehab

14 April 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In Hollywood, a kiss-and-tell autobiography is Ok, but a kiss-and-mock book is out of the question.

Longtime Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. member and former president Philip Berk has taken a six-month leave of absence from the organization that hands out the Golden Globes, which was not pleased with his memoir “With Signs and Wonders.” His sabbatical means that he will not be attending meetings or voting. It’s not clear yet whether he automatically rejoins after six months, or whether the org and he will renegotiate his possible re-entry — or further repercussions.

At a time when the HFPA has been working to clean up its image, the book paints a negative portrait of the org, often with anecdotes from 10 to 20 years ago. Berk also talks about the contract talks with Dick Clark Prods., which produces the very profitable Golden Globes telecast and Berk does not portray the org’s negotiating skills in a favorable light. »
