The Golden Globes is going to make a political statement by way of their menu for the 77th annual awards show.
The “party of the year” is going vegan in the name of climate change, and will be serving a completely meatless course.
The guests will be served with meals that are 100% plant-based, before the show on Sunday. According to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, they want to raise awareness about food consumption and waste.
How foregoing meat is supposed to do this, I have no idea.
HFPA president Lorenzo Soria stated, “If there’s a way we can, not change the world, but save the planet, maybe we can get the Golden Globes to send a signal and draw attention to the issue about climate change.”
“The food we eat, the way we grow the food we eat, the way we dispose of the food is one of the large contributors to the climate crisis,” he continued.
The annual awards ceremony will air on NBC from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.
Soria said there was some initial push back about changing the menu just about two weeks before the show, but the hotel eventually agreed on the new menu.
“People were basically saying it’s too late, we’re ready with all the orders, the holidays and all that,” Soria added. “But after we began discussions, meeting for one or two days, (the hotel) accepted the change completely. They started to experiment with how to do plant-based meals that was not just their symbolic steps, but also something that guests will enjoy.”
Matthew Morgan, executive chef at The Beverly Hilton, called the menu change initially surprising. But he ultimately understood it would send a positive message.
“It was a little shocking when first mentioned, because of being very close to the actual Globes and having already decided on a menu,” he said. “But once we thought about it and the message that it sent, we were really excited about it. That’s something I stand behind myself.”
Items on the main entree include king oyster mushrooms scallops and wild mushroom risotto, along with roasted baby purple and green Brussels sprouts and carrots. A chilled golden beet soup will be served as an appetizer.
