As the award season hits us with a bang, we can’t help being super excited about the grand Golden Globe 2022. Since its establishment in 1944 by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Golden Globe Awards have never ceased to bring forth some of the brightest talents in TV, music, and movies in the limelight. It is a vital step to get into and win the Oscars.
But despite the starry glamour of the Globes, we can’t say without a doubt that the Golden Globe Awards have always been distinctly clear to the audience. That gave rise to the big rumors frowning upon the strange membership going on since it started. So today, we will delve deep into the stories, nominations, and everything you need to know about the Golden Globe 2022.
79th Golden Globe Awards 2022 Telecast Date- 9 Januaary 2022
What’s with the Rumours?
The membership is in charge of the voting, but the audience always wants to see the unseen. They never brought it in front of the public eye.
But in February 2021, the newspaper printed fierce information about the HFPA, deliberately pointing to the unethical behaviors, no Black memberships, and dubious voting system.
It exposed the shadiness and wanted answers. So many advisors resigned, and a significant number of PR firms confirmed that until the Globe community welcomes notable changes to their system, they will not engage stars and a big part of the media in the grand function.
And this massive flame of controversy made NBC refuse to broadcast the event in 2022. So the HFPA had no choice but to promise to bring significant and transformational changes by a famous Instagram post in March 2021.
It also announced to have included 13 Black members. Even though the Globe has declared the nominations and the date, it will not come on TV. So, let’s look at why one of the most incredible Awards, the Golden Globe Awards 2022, had to face such a situation.
Allegations of Bribery
Back in 2012, the host of the Golden Globe, Ricky Gervais, stated that the awards were “easily bought” even though there was no proof. The New York Times also declared that the committee openly welcomed expensive gifts from celebrities, PR firms, publicists, and strategists, which triggered and transformed the entire voting process. According to many news critics and papers, these resulted in various controversies among the nominations, like Emily in Paris receiving two nominations. In contrast, I May Destroy You got none despite its critical acclaim in 2021. There are other similar instances in the past years as well.
Lack of Diversity
According to the Los Angeles Times investigation, the Globe had no Black members in their community since 2002. That’s when Meher Tatna joined as the President.
This disclosure made the HFPA face immense backlash from everyone. But a present member, Jenny Cooney, in an attempt to alleviate the situation, stated that the reason behind zero Black members “was not really anything we focused on” and further added that they didn’t feel the need to “go and find a Black person.”
So, as you can see, The Golden Globe Awards needed to be transformed in a particular way, leaving behind its years-long practice of partiality, possible cases of bribery, and lack of diversity.
Golden Globe 2022 Nominations
Even with the shady business, The Golden Globe Awards 2022 will still be one of the most incredible ceremonies awaiting us in 2022. The show will be on the 9th of January, as the Hollywood Foreign Press announced at an event. But sadly, it will not be televised.
But that still cannot snatch the attractions behind the nominations. So, let’s jump into the nominations.
