'QUEEN & SLIM' DIRECTOR CLAIMS GOLDEN GLOBES VOTERS DIDN'T BOTHER TO WATCH THE FILM: Queen & Slim director Melina Matsoukas has revealed that voters refused to watch the film. She told Variety that she had already been warned by her team that the membership of Hollywood Foreign Press Association, comprised of about 90 international journalists who vote on the Golden Globes, had skipped multiple screenings of “Queen & Slim” that had been set for them. She explained, “We held three screenings for the HFPA and almost no members attended. For me, it’s reflective of their voting body. It’s not reflective of the society in which we live in or the industry as it stands today. They don’t value the stories that represent all of us, and those stories are so often disregarded and discredited, as are their filmmakers.” She added: “It’s extremely discouraging. It’s extremely infuriating. And it just represents an archaic system that is full of people who don’t value us.” Meanwhile, a representative for the HPFA disputes the claim that members didn’t watch the film. The rep says all voters had been sent screeners and could have seen it at home.
