It is unclear whether the Golden Globes will air on NBC in 2023, despite an initial report published by The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday.

The ceremony, which honors film and television's best actors, is reportedly in talks with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) to return to the network next year; however, it is "not a done deal," a source familiar with the matter told Deadline. An insider shared a similar sentiment with The Wrap.

A HFPA spokesperson and a spokesperson for NBC declined to comment.
