Hollywood Foreign Press Association


好莱坞外国记者协会(HFPA)是一家由专门报道美国电影产业的记者所组成的组织,但这些记者服务的媒体均位于北美以外。该组织的名声主要得益于发起并持续每年举办金球奖颁奖活动。该协会成立于1943年,发起人是英国《每日邮报》(Daily Mail)的记者。协会的主要目标是向北美以外的国家传播关于好莱坞的新闻。

According to The New York Times, the HFPA “functions like an exclusive club, admitting a maximum of five new members a year, though more often…accepting only one. Any single member may object to a new member, making it extremely difficult to join. The association does not represent internationally renowned publications like Le Monde or The Times of London—indeed, it has repeatedly rejected applications from a Le Monde correspondent, while accepting applications from freelance writers from Bangladesh and South Korea”.
