The 2021 Golden Globe Awards took place last night.

Many stars have been speaking out over the lack of black representation in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Out of 87 members, not one person is black, and Hollywood has had enough.

Times Up

The official Times Up social media account shared an image ahead of the ceremony.

It reads, 'Hollywood Foreign Press Association: Not a single black member out of 87.'

Following the backlash, the HFPA released a statement to the Times.

As quoted by The Hollywood Reporter, they said, 'We are fully committed to ensuring our membership is reflective of the communities around the world who love film, TV and the artists inspiring and educating them.'

'We understand that we need to bring in black members, as well as members from other underrepresented backgrounds, and we will immediately work to implement an action plan to achieve these goals as soon as possible.'

Shortly after the statement was made, Times Up tweeted, 'A cosmetic fix isn’t enough'

Hollywood's biggest celebs have been showing their support for the movement by re-sharing the Times Up post with their followers.
