Boehly became interim CEO of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the organizer of the Golden Globe Awards, in 2021.[133] In July 2022, it was announced that Eldridge would acquire the HFPA, and establish a private company to manage the intellectual property of the Golden Globes.[134][135] The HFPA's philanthropic activities will be spun off into a non-profit organization.[133] In January 2023, Dick Clark Productions, the producer of the Golden Globes, was acquired by the joint venture Penske Media Eldridge.[136]

Under Eldridge's ownership, the organization announced a series of planned reforms, to improve accountability and inclusion. These reforms include the addition of new Golden Globes voters to increase the diversity of its membership,[137] which had previously been criticized for a lack of Black representation.[138] In 2023, the organization added 215 international members to its voting body. This increased the total number of voters from 95 voters prior to Eldridge’s ownership to 310 voters, with 52% of the expanded voting body identifying as ethnically diverse and 17% identifying as LGBTQ+.[139] The organization introduced a number of bylaws to prevent member misconduct and conflicts of interest. Members of the Golden Globes Association now receive a salary and are held to a higher level of accountability.[140]

In January 2023, the Golden Globe Awards returned to NBC after not having been televised the previous year. The 2023 show was described by some critics as a comeback for the association, receiving particular praise for the diversity of its nominees and "anything-goes vibe."[141] Michael Schulman of The New Yorker described the atmosphere as "alternately witty and moving."[142] The broadcast had 6.3 million viewers and made 24.2 billion impressions on social media.[143]

In June 2023, the Attorney General of California approved the dissolution of the HFPA and its reorganization into a commercial enterprise under Eldridge. As part of this reformation, the philanthropic activities of the HFPA will be handled by the newly formed Golden Globe Foundation, a nonprofit organization.[144]

The 2024 Golden Globes aired on CBS on January 7, 2024 and was watched by 9.4 million viewers, the show's highest ratings since before the COVID-19 pandemic.[145] The 2024 Globes included six nominees per category over the former five nominees, and two new awards categories: "Stand-up Comedy" and "Cinematic and Box Office Achievement".[146]
