A Los Angeles Times report on concerns over self-dealing and ethical lapses within the HFPA includes a tidbit on Emily in Paris, which received scorn after earning two nominations, including best television musical or comedy series, after middling reviews. "While there, Paramount Network treated the group to a two-night stay at the five-star Peninsula Paris hotel, where rooms currently start at about $1,400 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," reports the Times' Stacy Perman and Josh Rottenberg. “They treated us like kings and queens,” said one member who participated in the junket, which was also attended by other non-HFPA media. One HFPA member said the show’s best series nod points to a broader credibility issue for the group. “There was a real backlash and rightly so — that show doesn’t belong on any best of 2020 list,” the HFPA member said.
