Golden Globes 2022: ‘The Power Of The Dog,’ ‘West Side Story’ Win Big

TOPLINE

With no live broadcast, no red carpet and a minimal in-person ceremony, Sunday’s 2022 Golden Globes Awards put on by the controversy-marred Hollywood Foreign Press Association looked different than the grand festivities of years’ prior—here’s a list of the night’s winners.

KEY FACTS

Though the Golden Globes were held at the Beverly Hills Hotel, only select HFPA members and awardees were in attendance—The HFPA told Forbes last week the ceremony would be a “private event” and winners would be announced on social media and through their website.

The ceremony, which honors work in movies and television, usually serves as the kickoff for awards season, and is considered by many in the entertainment industry to be a barometer for the upcoming Academy Awards in March—though as Vox and CNBC pointed out last year, the winners usually don’t line up because the Globes are structured differently and have a much smaller voting pool.

Winners were announced by representatives from non-profit organizations who received grants from the HFPA, instead of celebrities, though there was some star presence: Jamie Lee Curtis and Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared in a videos posted on the Globes’ Instagram account.

Standout winners include Billie Eilish and Finneas for Best Original Song, Motion Picture for “No Time To Die,” O Yeong-su from Neftlix’s Squid Game, who won for Best Performance by a Supporting Actor in a Series, Limited Series, or Television Movie, and Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, who won for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Drama, become the first openly-trans actress to win a Golden Globe.

Despite nearly sweeping last year’s comedy Emmy Awards, Ted Lasso only earned one Golden Globe—It was bested by Hacks, which won Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy and Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy (Jean Smart).

BIG NUMBER.

Three. That’s how many awards The Power Of The Dog and West Side Story won, making them the winningest movies of the night. The Power Of The Dog was tied with Belfast as the most-nominated movies, with each film earning seven nominations. Succession, which was the most-nominated TV series, earned three awards. It was nominated for five.

KEY BACKGROUND

NBC, which usually broadcasts the Golden Globes, announced in May it would not air the 2022 ceremony after it was alleged in a Los Angeles Times exposethat HFPA did not have any Black members and that some of its members engaged in unethical behavior, like taking lavish gifts from producers in return for backing certain shows or films, leading studios including Netflix and Amazon to boycott the organization. In response, HFPA welcomed six Black members amid a new class of 21 and announced a new partnership with the NAACP with several initiatives, including to foster the careers of young Black entertainers and journalists. The Golden Globes could return to NBC next year: the network said they would broadcast the 2023 ceremony if the HFPA “executes on its plan” for real change. 

TANGENT

The Golden Globes aren’t the only awards ceremony in flux this year. The Grammy Awards, which were scheduled to be held in-person on January 31, announced last week that the ceremony will be postponed because of rising Covid-19 cases. Several smaller award shows, like the Critics Choice Awards, have also postponed their ceremonies, taking back hope that awards season could return to pre-pandemic normalcy this year.
