HFPA releases Globe regs

List contains no major changes

A week after the Oscar folk put out their regulations on awards campaigns, the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. has issued its guidelines, but it’s a shorter, gentler list.

The HFPA occasionally puts out its rules as a reminder to kudos strategists, and this list contains no major changes.

The five-point reminder is preceded by a paragraph that states, “Due to increasing focus on awards campaigning by studios, publicity companies and individual publicists, the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.’s recently elected executive and our press conferences committee draw your attention to the following guidelines.”

The list is no-nonsense: no gifts, no solicitation of members’ opinions, no invitations to special events unless other press are invited. It also reminds publicists that talent are not to pop up uninvited at HFPA receptions.

Many skeptics in the media still needle the Foreign Press over alleged gift-giving and junkets of decades ago, but the org has worked hard in recent years to re-establish its legitimacy and credibility.

The one-page reminder, mailed to strategists, was signed by new HFPA prez Lorenzo Soria.
