Lorenzo Soria Elected as HFPA President

A previous president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has been reelected for the 2015-2016 year. The Argentinean-born, Italian journalist Lorenzo Soria writes for various Italian newspapapers and magazines including La Stampa and L’Espresso, and has been a member of the HFPA since 1989. He previously served as president in 2003-2005 and was Vice President last year under Dutch journalist Theo Kingma.

“I’m humbled to be elected by my peers and colleagues here at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and thank them for allowing me to serve as their president,” said Soria in a statement. “I will continue to be a dedicated member of this outstanding organization; one that works year-round to build a voice for individuals in the arts and entertainment community through promoting journalism around the world, varied programming, contributions to non-profit organizations, and bringing film and television admirers an extraordinary Golden Globes ceremony in January!”

Former treasurer Meher Tatna was elected as vice president, Jorge Camara as treasurer and Serge Rakhlin as executive secretary. Theo Kingma, Luca Celada, Ali Sar, Anke Hofman, Helen Hoehne and Mario Amaya were elected to the Board of Directors. The 73rd Golden Globe Awards are scheduled for Sunday, January 10th, and will take place in Los Angeles.
