Producers of Netflix's Euro-comedy "Emily in Paris" flew over 30 Golden Globes voters to France for a luxury visit of the show's set, the Los Angeles Times reported in a new investigation.

The report, which was published by the Times over the weekend, delves into what the newspaper described as allegations of "ethical conflicts" and a "culture of corruption" within the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the influential but enigmatic organisation that runs the annual Golden Globe Awards.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle 'Under No Obligation' to Tell Royal Family About Interview Plans, Source Says

  Prince Harry & Meghan Markle 'Under No Obligation' to Tell Royal Family About Interview Plans, Source Says As non-working members of the royal family, a source tells ET the couple do not need to inform them about their plans ahead of time.While it's unknown whether the Duke and Duchess of Sussex -- who made their royal exit last year -- gave the royal family a heads up about their interview with Oprah, a royal source tells ET they are "under no obligation" to let them know about their plans.

The investigation largely focuses on the validity of Golden Globes nominations, which have often proved controversial. The report says there is a widespread belief in Hollywood that Globes voters can be "wheedled and swayed with special attention and access to A-list stars" before detailing a luxury trip to Paris that Paramount Network â€" the original producers of "Emily In Paris" â€" gave to more than 30 members of the HFPA.

The trip included "a two-night stay at the five-star Peninsula Paris hotel, where rooms currently start at about $US1,400 a night, and a news conference and lunch at the Musée des Arts Forains, a private museum filled with amusement rides dating to 1850 where the show was shooting," the report read.

Dogs came to N. America with earliest humans: study

  Dogs came to N. America with earliest humans: study Scientists said Wednesday they had discovered the oldest remains of a domestic dog in the Americas dating back more than 10,000 years, suggesting the animals accompanied the first waves of human settlers. Lindqvist said her findings supported the theory that dogs in fact arrived in North America among the first waves of humans settlers. "We also have evidence that the coastal edge of the ice sheet started melting at least around 17,000 year ago, whereas the inland corridor was not viable until around 13,000 years ago," she told AFP. "And genetic evidence that a coastal route for the first Americans over 16,000 years ago seems most likely.

One unnamed member of the HFPA who took part in the trip told the LA Times that the show's producers treated them like "kings and queens" throughout their time in France.

Insider has reached out to the HFPA, Paramount Network, and Netflix for comment.

"Emily in Paris" was acquired from Paramount by Netflix and premiered on the streamer late last year. The show follows the life of a young American ex-pat in Paris who works at a high-end marketing firm. And despite widespread critical panning, the show picked up two Golden Globes nominations earlier this month including Best TV Comedy.

The show's Globes nominations shocked many people including members of the industry. Deborah Copaken, who is a staff writer on the show who wrote an op-ed for The Guardian in which she admitted to being "stunned" that "Emily in Paris" received two nominations while Michaela Coel's acclaimed drama "I May Destroy You" was completely snubbed.

"That 'I May Destroy You' did not get one Golden Globe nod is not only wrong, it's what is wrong with everything," Copaken wrote.

In November, a court ruled against Norwegian entertainment journalist Kjersti Flaa who filed a lawsuit against the HFPA after she was denied admissions to the organisation. In her suit, Flaa said that the HFPA is run like a cartel and intentionally stifles competition for its members.
