Here Are the 2022 Golden Globes Nominations
| LAST UPDATE 12/15/2021
It's that time of the year, again: the official Golden Globes nominations are in. Keep scrolling to see who's up for the famous statuette and why things will look a whole lot different for the 2022 show.
Once considered one of the most highly-anticipated award shows of the year, the Golden Globes is in need of a major glow-up. But before we get into that, let's take a quick look at who's been nominated. A few of our favorite faces are up for Best Performance by an Actress in a TV series: Issa Rae (Insecure), Elle Fanning (The Great), Tracee Ellis Ross (black-ish), and Hack's Hannah Einbender and Jean Smart.
Some other highlights are Billy Porter (Pose), who's up for Best Performance by an Actor, plus Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show) and Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale) for Best Performance by an Actress. The Morning Show, Pose, and Squid Game, among others, received nods in the Best Television Series Drama category. Not surprisingly, Kristen Stewart got a nomination for Best Actress for her role in Spencer, Lady Gaga for House of Gucci, and Jennifer Lawrence for Don't Look Up.
And while in years past, our social media feeds were with A-listers giving thanks for being recognized, there's been a notable silence when it comes to the 2022 nominations. Jessica Chastain, who's up for two awards, was one of the few stars who shared appreciation as other actors stayed quiet amidst all of the controversies the Golden Globes have been facing. Need a refresher?
Both of these roles meant the world to me and have had such a huge impact. I am so thankful that they are being recognized. Congrats to all of the nominees for this year’s #GoldenGlobes from myself, Tammy & Mira 💖 #TheEyesOfTammyFaye pic.twitter.com/2TlRtBsbgp— Jessica Chastain (@jes_chastain) December 13, 2021
In February, a report published for the Los Angeles Times showed that the HFPA included 87 journalists - zero of whom were Black. Allegations of bribing and inappropriate behavior were also revealed, leading production companies and actors to boycott the organization. "For far too long, demands for perks, special favors, and unprofessional requests have been made to our teams and to others across the industry," WarnerMedia said in a public letter, adding that they were concerned about "racially insensitive, sexist and homophobic questions" at conferences leading up to the annual show.
The HFPA has since added 21 new members, including six Black members, and banned gifts and favors. But it looks like they'll have to do much more than that to redeem themselves: NBC announced they would no longer be airing the once-legendary program. "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," the broadcasting network said. "Assuming the organization executes on its plan, we are hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023."
Cheers to more positive change in Hollywood. But we don't blame ya if you're still curious to see the full list of nominations.
