Battle Over Golden Globes Heads to Court

The bitter fight between Dick Clark Productions and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association over TV rights to the Golden Globe Awards will go to trial, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A U.S. District Court judge ruled that a factual dispute exists in the case, which justifies sending the matter to court.

The story reports: “The HFPA sued Dick Clark in November claiming it didn’t have the right to negotiate a new television deal with NBC without the HFPA’s approval. DCP and its owner, Red Zone, claim that a 1993 deal grants it perpetual rights to produce the high-rated awards show as long as it secured a broadcast partner.”

The trial is set to begin Aug. 30 in Los Angeles.
