Golden Globes 2022: ‘Succession’ and ‘Power of the Dog’ take top honors


By Kyle Buchanan


What do the Golden Globes do after a year of scandals so severe that NBC dropped the broadcast?


They tweet through it.


On Sunday night, members of the embattled Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the winners of this year’s Golden Globes, but they read those names to a ballroom at the Beverly Hilton devoid of stars, then posted the results to Twitter in real time. Those tweets — strewn with emojis and bad puns and often lacking key information about what movie anybody was winning for — came in for even more ridicule on social media.


It’s a stunning downgrade for what used to be one of the glitziest awards shows in Hollywood. But after investigations by the Los Angeles Times and The New York Times revealed a series of ethical lapses within the HFPA and a membership devoid of Black voters, Hollywood’s major publicity firms cut off the show’s access to stars.


That means Sunday’s ceremony lacked an in-person presence from winners such as Will Smith (“King Richard”) and Nicole Kidman (“Being the Ricardos”), who took the lead-acting drama trophies, or their counterparts in the musical/comedy categories, Andrew Garfield from “Tick, Tick … Boom!” and Rachel Zegler of “West Side Story.” The latter film took two additional Globes, snagging wins for best comedy or musical and for Ariana DeBose in the supporting-actress category, matching “The Power of the Dog,” which won best drama, best director (Jane Campion) and best supporting actor (Kodi Smit-McPhee).


Since the scandals came to light, the HFPA has since announced a new slate of rules and admitted 21 new members, including journalists of color. Still, it remains to be seen if Hollywood will even acknowledge Sunday’s ceremony, or whether the stars who won will pretend that nothing happened. If that cold shoulder continues, the Golden Globes may become the first awards show to itself be the victim of a major snub.
