In case you were wondering, Netflix won’t be partying with The Weinstein Company at the Golden Globes next year — or any upcoming awards gatherings.

The streaming service, which has co-hosted a bash for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s big night with TWC for the last three years, said Wednesday that it will be going solo on all future celebratory occasions.

“We have no plans to partner with other studios for upcoming events,” a Netflix spokesperson told TheWrap on Wednesday.

The Golden Globes party has emerged as the most public partnership between the two companies.

Netflix’s decision follows the revelations about TWC co-founder Harvey Weinstein, who was fired last month after multiple women accused him of sexual harassment and assault — charges that he has publicly denied.

TheWrap reached out to TWC for comment on Netflix’s statement, but the company did not respond by time of publication.

The indie distributor, now run by co-founder Bob Weinstein, has pulled all the releases from the rest of its 2017 slate, including awards-bait projects like the historical drama “The Current War” and also returned Taylor Sheridan’s acclaimed summer release “Wind River” to its producers.

When asked last month if Netflix would be interested in buying TWC, CEO Reed Hastings said, “It would be extremely unlikely for us to be a bidder for the firm.”

The news was first reported by Variety.
