Golden Globes 2018: Netflix Will Not Party with Weinstein Company

As expected, Netflix will not hold a Golden Globes party with the Weinstein Company (TWC) on January 7.

“We have no plans to partner with other studios for upcoming events,” Netflix spokesperson said.

The most public partnership between Netflix and TWC has been the Golden Globes party that the two companies have co-hosted for the last three years. The decision not to co-sponsor a party with the embattled Weinstein Company comes in the wake of the massive sexual-assault and -harassment scandal that has engulfed the TWC co-founder Harvey Weinstein and thrown the future of the film and television production company into question.

Netflix executives were asked in an interview last month pegged to the company’s earnings report whether the streaming service would be interested in buying the Weinstein Company. CEO Reed Hastings all but rejected the idea. “It would be extremely unlikely for us to be a bidder for the firm,” he said.
