The Golden Globes, Hollywood’s so-called biggest party that regularly draws 18 million TV viewers, was reduced to a live blog on Sunday night for its 79th edition.
Hollywood’s vibrant Foreign Press Association conducted its film awards Sunday night without TV people, nominations, red carpets, hosts, press or even a live stream. . Instead, members of the HFPA and several recipients of the group’s charitable endowments gathered at the Beverly Hilton Hotel for a private 90-minute event, announcing the names of the field’s winners. film and television sectors on the organization’s social media feeds.
Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story” has won several major awards, for best comedy or musical, best actress for Rachel Zegler and best supporting actress for Ariana DeBose.
Netflix’s “The Power of the Dog” was named best drama series, with other honors going to Jane Campion’s direction and Kodi Smit-McPhee’s supporting performance.
Other film winners include Will Smith for “King Richard,” Nicole Kidman for “Being the Ricardos” and Andrew Garfield for “tick, tick… BOOM!” The Japanese film “Drive My Car”, which is also a critically loved one, received the award for Best Non-English Animated Feature Film, while “Encanto” won the award for animated feature.
While announcing winners on social media may seem like a simple task, Twitter-only followers can be a bit confusing at times. The tweets often leave out the exact project a person has won.
To announce the winner for best actor, musical or comedy, the organization tweeted: “It takes 43 muscles to smile. Thanks for Andrew Garfield’s practice and congrats on taking home the #GoldenGlobe Award for Best Actor — Motion Picture — Musical/Comedy”, not to mention the award is now on its way. he in “tick, tick… BOOM! ”
Other times, the tweets are completely confusing. When announcing the win of “West Side Story,” the team initially wrote, “If laughter is the best medicine, @WestSideMovie is your cure” of the film’s death and tragedy. . They then deleted the tweet and wrote a new tweet about how “music” is the best medicine.
Television winners include: Sarah Snook and Jeremy Strong for “Succession,” best drama, Jean Smart for “Hacks,” also winning best television comedy, Jason Sudeikis for “Ted Lasso.” , Kate Winslet for “Mare of Easttown,” O Yeong-su for “Squid Game” and Michael Keaton for “Dopesick. Barry Jenkins’ movie ‘Underground Railroad’ had the best limited series. The group said on its website that “Pose” star Michaela Jaé Rodriguez has become the first transgender person to win a Golden Globe.
None of the winners appeared to be present at the event, nor did they immediately comment on their prizes.
Jamie Lee Curtis, however, chimed in with a video shared on Twitter of the group, talking about HFPA’s charitable work.
“I just want to pay tribute and stand with them in this continuing campaign,” Curtis said. “I am proud to be partnering with them on this venture.”
The HFPA enlisted the leaders of the groups it has funded to announce the winners. Arnold Schwarzenegger also joined in with a video message, thanking the group for recognizing him as “new star of the year” in 1977.
The organization of conducting any kind of event has taken many people in Hollywood by surprise. The HFPA came under fire after a Los Angeles Times investigation in February revealed ethical flaws and a staggering lack of diversity – not a single Black journalist in the group of 87. Film studios and PR company threatened with boycott. Tom Cruise even returned three Golden Globes to himself, while other A-listers condemned the group on social networks.
Surname committed to reform last year, but even after announcing it publicly on the 78th show, their longtime broadcast partner NBC announced in May that they would not be broadcasting the Golden Globes 2022 because “Changing this level takes time and effort.” The broadcaster typically pays around $60 million for the rights to air the show, which ranks among the most-watched award shows after the Oscars and Grammys.
Though often derided, Hollywood has embraced the Golden Globes as a legitimate and useful landing during a competitive awards season. And for audiences around the world, it was a reasonably vibrant night, with glamorous fashion, big stars, the promise of champagne-filled speeches and hosts – from Tina Fey, Amy Poehler to Ricky Gervais – frequently poking fun at HFPA.
After the NBC hit, many expected that HFPA would simply sit out a year. Film studios and the Hollywood public have also largely opted out of the group as in previous years, with some refusing to provide screeners for review. When the nominees were announced last month, few people celebrated publicly.
The Press Association stated that in the months from the 2021 program, it did it again. The team has added a diversification director; its board overhaul; introduced 21 new members, including six Black journalists; bring the NAACP into a five-year partnership; and update its code of conduct.
