Golden Globes 2022 will take place without celebrity presenters, a crowd


On Sunday, a stripped-down Golden Globes will take place, with no star presenters, audience, or media, as the event renowned as Hollywood’s largest celebration recovers from an industry boycott over its organizers’ ethical failings.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which votes on the Globes, has been accused of racism, misogyny, bullying, and corruption, prompting NBC to cancel its annual awards ceremony last year.

Nonetheless, awards in cinema and television will be presented on Sunday at the Globes’ traditional Beverly Hills hotel venue, in a show that will spotlight “the HFPA’s long-established charitable efforts,” according to the organization.

“The HFPA has provided $50 million to over 70 entertainment-related organizations, film restoration, scholarship programs, and humanitarian efforts over the past 25 years,” the organization stated in a statement.

Winners & Nominees 2022

The 79th Golden Globe Awards winners will not be broadcast live due to health concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic and the quickly spreading Omicron subtype, according to the organization.

The Golden Globes have traditionally been second in importance only to the Oscars in Hollywood’s film awards season, but their credibility has been thrown into question — and their future plunged into doubt.

Many Tinseltown publicists and studios refused to participate in this year’s edition, and A-listers publicly distanced themselves from the embattled group, at least until reforms are made.

The HFPA announced its annual nominations last month, with Kenneth Branagh’s childhood-inspired ‘Belfast’ and Jane Campion’s dark Western ‘The Power of the Dog’ topping the selections with seven nods apiece.
