The director of “Queen & Slim” claims that Golden Globe voters have not even bothered to watch the movie

We understand why people think that these rewards are not for us. Next month, the Golden Globes nominations were announced this week and social media noticed the lack of representation in the nominations. Among other obvious snobs (“When they see us”), the director of “Queen & Slim” Melina Matsoukas denounces the Golden Globes, saying that voters refused to watch his film, reports Variety, although others believe that it’s the movie. of the year.

Melina said she had already been warned by her team that the composition of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, composed of about 90 international journalists who vote for the Golden Globes, had skipped several “Queen & Slim” screenings that had them been fixed.

“We did three screenings for the HFPA and almost no members attended,” said Matsoukas. “For me, this reflects their voting organ. It does not reflect the society we live in or the industry today. They do not appreciate the stories that represent us all, and these stories are so often ignored and discredited, as are their filmmakers. “

She added, “This is extremely discouraging. It’s extremely infuriating. And this is just an archaic system that is full of people who do not appreciate us. “

“Queen & Slim”, was written and produced by Lena Waithe and stars Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith. The film grossed nearly $ 30 million at the national box office, surpassing analysts’ expectations.

A representative of the HPFA contests the claim that members did not watch the film. The representative stated that all voters had been sent for screening and could have seen him at home. “The HFPA argues that” Queen & Slim “was in the conversation among the members,” said the organization. Variety in a report.

Sources told Variety that Universal Pictures tried to persuade members of the Hollywood Foreign Press to see “Queen & Slim”. But after three different screenings, only a few electors of the HFPA were present – a source puts the number at four – despite the strong “Queen & Slim’s” opinion.

The Hollywood Foreign Press has taken a lot of heat this week for not appointing a single director or screenwriter for the Golden Globes despite the fact that women have shined this year in the cinema.
