Golden Globes 2022: No media, no red carpet, no big faces, no broadcast

 Garfield wins Best Actor, The Power of Dog wins Best Film

This year’s Golden Globes were unlike the other years in the most unremarkable fashion. With no known faces at attendance or any media to cover them, the event took place quietly at its famed aboard, Los Angeles Beverly Hill Hotel, this Sunday.

The award show was untelevised and chaos laden from the very beginning. NBC announced in May that it is pulling out from airing it. NBC’s decision came along after Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s (HFPA’s) repulsed following a report in Los Angeles Times, that the voting body at Globes had no black members.

Back in February, the Los Angeles Times ran an expose on HFPA’s lack of representation and diversity in its internal and external functioning. In 2021, the awards were once again in bad light for its questionable nominations, which didn’t include notable Black-led projects from that year. In April of that year, former HFPA President, Philip Berk, was ousted from the organisation over hate filled emails he sent to his associates concerning Black Lives Matter.

Amid all the controversy and empty seats, the organisation decided to announce the winners on twitter. Here is the list of nominations and winners.
