The star-studded 79th Annual Golden Globe Awards kicks off on Sunday, January 9, and we can’t contain our excitement for awards season to finally begin.
In December, the president of Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) Helen Hoehne announced the nominees for the 2022 event, alongside American rapper Snoop Dog.
Films such as The Power of the Dog, The Lost Daughter and Don’t Look Up are in the running for leading awards, such as Best Motion Picture and Best Director, not to mention highly-acclaimed TV series, including The Morning Show, Succession and The Great for the most coveted television gongs.
When it comes to the stars who’ve been dominating our screens of late, the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Kristen Stewart and Nicole Kidman are up for Best Actress film awards, while actors Jennifer Aniston, Elle Fanning and Jeremy Strong are nominated for their highly praised performances in TV series including The Morning Show, The Great and Succession, respectively.
Other strong contenders for awards include Lady Gaga for House of Gucci, Olivia Colman for The Lost Daughter and Will Smith for King Richard. The latter is a biographical drama about the heralded tennis champion sisters, Serena and Venus Williams.
Legendary actor Leonardo DiCaprio, who stars in the sci-fi comedy Don’t Look Up alongside heavyweights Lawrence and Oscar-winning Meryl Streep, is also up for a top award.
This year’s Golden Globes also sees newcomers such as Maid‘s Margaret Qualley and Succession‘s Sarah Snook nominated, as well as WandaVision‘s Elizabeth Olsen who, despite her sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley having had a successful acting career (before they ventured into fashion), is the first of her siblings to be up for such an award.
The 2021 Golden Globes were a progressive moment for females in film. The event saw three women – Regina King, Emerald Fennell and Chloé Zhao – nominated for the Best Director category, the latter of won the title for her neo-Western drama Nomadland.
However, popular historical drama Bridgerton controversially didn’t receive a nomination for an award, nor did Michaela Coel‘s I May Destroy You or Judas and the Black Messiah, causing criticism aimed at HFPA, the organization behind the event, for discrimination and lack of diversity.
Ahead of the 2022 event, here is everything you need to know about the 2021 Golden Globes:
When are the 2022 Golden Globes?
Sunday January 9, 2022.
Who is hosting the 2022 Golden Globes?
After news that the next instalment of the Golden Globes won’t be televised, it has now been widely reported that no celebrities have signed up for presenting this year’s awards.
What’s the 2022 Golden Globes controversy?
NBCUniversal announced in May 2021 that it would not broadcast the Golden Globes like usual, following issues around HFPA’s lack of diversity, reported the New York Times.
The organization said in a statement: “We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform. However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right. As such, NBC will not air the 2022 Golden Globes. Assuming the organization executes on its plan, we are hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023.”
In the wake of the decision, the HFPA vowed to improve its representation on this front, calling on its ‘partners in the industry’ to collaborate with them to make change happen.
Black Widow actor Scarlett Johansson revealed to Variety last year that she had decided to “step back” from the HFPA, as a result of “sexist questions and remarks,” until it puts more substantial reforms in place.
In addition, the NYT reported that actor Tom Cruise had returned three of Golden Globes.
An email from the Golden Globes talent booker, obtained by Variety, read: “The Golden Globes will move forward with a small event on January 9th that will not only award the best performances in television and film for 2021, but also on recognizing the importance of supporting diverse creatives across the industry.”
“The event this year will celebrate and honour a variety of diverse, community-based programs that empower inclusive filmmakers and journalists to pursue their storytelling passions. The HFPA has financially supported important underserved organizations for decades and will continue to invest in the future leaders of our industry.”
What precautions having been taken amid COVID-19?
The same email from the Golden Globes talent booker addressed the ‘strict’ measures being put in place at the event as a result of the pandemic.
As well as limiting the number of guests at the event, those in attendance are required to show proof of their full vaccination and booster shot, as well as a negative PCR test.
