Netflix Won’t Host Golden Globes Party With Weinstein Company

Netflix will not hold a Golden Globes party with the Weinstein Company next year, Variety has learned.

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

In 2013, Netflix lured TWC away from Showtime, where the studio had long had a film output agreement, in a deal that Harvey Weinstein at the time called, “probably the biggest deal in the history of The Weinstein Company.” TWC later negotiated the agreement for Netflix to serve as the U.S. home for Endemol Shine’s “Peaky Blinders.” (A TWC production card was removed from the series last week by Endemol Shine.) In 2014, the two companies partnered on “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend.” TWC produced what was, at the time, a huge win for Netflix — an original film that would be made available on Netflix on the same day and date as its theatrical release, which took place in IMAX theaters. TWC also produced Netflix original series “Marco Polo,” one of the most expensive shows in television history.
