Hollywood Foreign Press Re-Elects President Lorenzo Soria

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has re-elected president Lorenzo Soria.

Soria, who served from 2003 to 2005 and 2015 to 2016, will continue his presidency through 2017.

“For more than 70 years, the HFPA has had the privilege of celebrating storytellers who’ve brought us some of the greatest stories of imagination, courage, and transformation,” Soria said. “In this next year we are not only thrilled to continue our work, but also committed to expanding our philanthropic programs so that we use our platform to empower these same qualities in people and communities we serve throughout the world.”

Born in Argentina, raised in Italy and living in Los Angeles, Soria works for the Italian news weekly L’Espresso and daily La Stampa.

Soria will be joined by Meher Tatna, Jorge Camara and Serge Rakhlin, who were re-elected as vice president, treasurer and executive secretary, respectively.

The HFPA also named its board of directors for 2016-17: Board chair Ali Sar, Luca Celada, Helen Hoehne, Anke Hofmann, Ruben Nepales and alternate Yoram Kahana. Kirpi Uimonen Ballesteros and Mario Amaya have joined the credentials committee.

The organization, founded in 1943, is best known as the body behind the Golden Globe Awards. This year’s ceremony will be broadcast on Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017, from the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.
