The 2022 Golden Globes Nominations Are in With ‘Succession’ Up for Five


The Golden Globes will go ahead in 2022, despite the controversy that has surrounded the Hollywood Foreign Press Association —  the small group of journalists from international media who vote on the winners each year.

After it came to light that, of the 87 members, not one of them was Black, the HFPA said it would be taking a year off to fix the issue, recruit some diverse voices and then return with the Globes in 2023.

The organisation had little choice, given that NBC announced they would not be televising the 2022 ceremonies and major studios, including Netflix, announced they’d no longer deal with the HFPA until changes were made.

Important names such as Ava DuVernay, Shonda Rhimes, Scarlett Johansson and Tom Cruise also spoke out against the HFPA, who then said they would do better.

Jane Fonda, who was the 2021 recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award, also used her speech at the ceremony to urge the organisation to make a change.

“There’s a story we’ve been afraid to see and hear about ourselves in this industry,” the actress said. “The story about which voices we respect and elevate and which we tune out. It’s about who’s offered a seat at the table and who was kept out of the rooms where decisions are made.

“So that’s all of us, including all the groups who decide who gets hired and what gets made and who wins awards. Let’s all of us make an effort to expand that tent so that everyone rises and everyone’s story has a chance to be seen and heard.”

The organisation has now added 21 new members — six of them Black. There are now 103 members, including 12 Latinos, 18 Asians, and nine from the Middle East.

The Globes also made changes to its eligibility criteria for Best Motion Picture in both the drama and comedy/musical categories, meaning that foreign-language films are now able to compete, so long as they still comply with the existing mandate which states they must be released in Los Angeles cinemas during the relevant eligibility period.

Ted Lasso and The Morning Show earned four nominations apiece while films The Power of the Dog, Belfast, Dune, King Richard and CODA will battle it out for best drama.

The Power of the Dog and Belfast lead the film category with seven nominations apiece while Succession, unsurprisingly, was out in front in the tv categories with five — including a nod for Aussie actress Sarah Snook who plays Shiv Roy.

Netflix had the most film nominations with 17 chances to win for The Power of the Dog, Don’t Look Up and Tick, Tick … Boom! 

The 2022 ceremony will not be televised but will move ahead nonetheless on January 9, 2022.
