The 79th Golden Globes ceremony will be a "private event" and no longer live-streamed, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced.

The winners at the annual awards ceremony will be announced in real time on the Golden Globes website and social media.

Australian interest in the awards is headlined by Nicole Kidman, Sarah Snook and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

Kidman, a five-time Golden Globe winner, is nominated for a best actress gong for her role as Lucille Ball in Being the Ricardos.

The runaway success of TV series Succession has helped Snook snag a first nomination in the best supporting actress category, while rising star Smit-McPhee is rewarded with a best supporting actor nod for a standout performance in the Power of the Dog.

The event received heavy criticism last year after it emerged the HFPA, the body that presents the awards, had no black members.

The broadcast of this year's award ceremony was dropped by US network NBC following the controversy.

The ceremony is due to take place on Sunday at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles though there will be no red carpet and, according to US media outlets, no celebrity hosts.

The organisation recently said the event would feature a discussion of a new five-year diversity initiative in conjunction with the NAACP Hollywood Bureau.

The project aims to ensure "visibility of projects from artists of diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds" and to increase "diverse representation in the industry".

The backlash over the HFPA's lack of black members prompted the association to overhaul its bylaws and implement changes addressing ethics and inclusion.
