The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. and Dick Clark Prods.’ legal battle over the Golden Globes may be headed to court. Today, a federal judge denied DCP’s motion to dismiss HFPA’s Nov. 17 complaint against the longtime producer of the Golden Globes and its new owner, Red Zone. The ruling follows HFPA’s scathing Feb. 8 response to DCP’s motion to dismiss. “We are thrilled that the federal judge ruled in our favor that our lawsuit, claiming that DCP has no right to the Golden Globe Awards beyond 2011, has merit,” HFPA president Philip Berk said. “We will continue the fight to reclaim all of our rights.” In the original complaint, HFPA accused DCP of hijacking the Golden Globes and secretly negotiating a new deal with NBC behind the association’s back.
