The Golden Globes nominations were announced amid uncertainty to who will be attending the ceremony, after stars called for a boycott of the ceremony due to the lack of diversity on the HFPA panel after it was revealed there were no black members.
Ahead of announcing the nominations, HFPA President Helen Hoehne addressed the scandal, stating: ‘This has been a year of change and reflection worked tirelessly to be better. We also have 21 new members the largest and most diverse in our history.’
Snoop Dogg then read out the nominees and raised a laugh from the audience when he accidentally mispronounced Ben Affleck’s name, referring to him as Ben Afflay.
Kristen Stewart received a Best Actress nomination for her controversial role as Princess Diana in Spencer and will go up against Lady Gaga who also faced backlash for playing Patrizia Reggiani in House of Gucci. The ladies are joined by Jessica Chastain (The Eyes of Tammy Faye) Olivia Colman (The Lost Daughter) and Nicole Kidman (Being the Ricardos) in the Drama category.
While Kristen and Gaga both received Best Actress nods for Spencer and House Of Gucci, their respective films received no other nominations.
Controversial: Kristen Stewart received a Best Actress nomination for her controversial role as Princess Diana in Spencer and will go up against Lady Gaga who also faced backlash for her role as Patrizia Reggiani in House of Gucci
Spencer follows the breakdown of the royal’s high-profile, 15-year marriage to Prince Charles and takes place over three days during one of Diana’s final Christmases at the House of Windsor in their Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England in 1991.
While the film received mainly positive reviews, royal experts branded the film ‘cruel’ and ‘unnecessarily gratuitous’, saying the movie strips the late princess of her ‘respect and dignity’.
Gaga also came under fire for her role as Patrizia Reggiani in House Of Gucci which follows the family’s scandal when Patrizia ordered a hit on fashion heir ex Maurizio Gucci, played by Adam Driver.
The Gucci family were not pleased with the film, saying in a statement that the portrayal ‘couldn’t be further from the truth’ and that they take issue with how members were painted ‘as thugs, ignorant and insensitive to the world around them.’
Elsewhere in the film categories, Don’t Look Up, Adam McKay’s apocalypse satire, picked up four nominations, including Best Film – comedy or musical and Best Actor/Actress for Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence – despite the movie receiving mixed reviews from critics.
Also bagging four nominations were King Richard, in which Will Smith plays the father of Venus and Serena Williams and has been nominated for Best Actor, and Steven Spielberg’s remake of West Side Story.
In the Musical/Comedy film category Cyrano, Don’t Look Up, Licorice Pizza, Tick Tick Boom and West Side Story will battle it out.
Congrats: Don’t Look Up, Adam McKay’s apocalypse satire, picked up four nominations, including Best Film – comedy or musical and Best Actor/Actress for Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence – despite the movie receiving mixed reviews
Succession was the most nominated TV series with five mentions, with The Morning Show and Ted Lasso closely behind on four.
Succession follows The Logan family known for controlling the biggest media and entertainment company in the world. However, their world changes when their father steps down from the company.
Brian Cox, who plays Logan Roy, will battle it out against his on-screen son Jeremy Strong (Kendall) in the Best Actor Drama category, while Sarah Snook (Shiv) and Kieran Culkin (Roman) have nods in the Supporting categories.
The hit show will face Lupin, The Morning Show, Pose and Squid Game in the Best TV Series – Drama category.
In the TV Comedy category, Ted Lasso will face off against The Great, Hacks, Only Murders in the Building and Reservation Dogs.
As the nominations were announced Snoop Dogg put his own unique spin on the pronunciation of acclaimed actors’ names.
The iconic musician, 50, raised a chuckle from the audience and social media as he announced Ben Affleck as a Best Supporting Actor nominee for The Tender Bar – but called him ‘Been Afflay.’
Realising his mistake, he laughed and said ‘sorry, Ben Affleck, sorry for that Ben!’
Good luck: Also bagging four nominations were King Richard, in which Will Smith plays the father of Venus and Serena Williams and has been nominated for Best Actor
The blunders didn’t stop there as Snoop notably paused before announcing Ciarán Hinds’ nomination in the same category for Belfast, saying ‘Ca-ron, no sorry, Karen Hinds, work with me now!’
The Sweat hitmaker then delighted fans by calling Best Director, Motion Picture nominee Denis Villeneuve, ‘Dennis Villain Uawver’.
While there were several titles that were expected to make the list that did,there were also several actors and films that were passed over.
Meryl Streep has been nominated for almost 30 Golden Globe awards throughout her career. But she was not recognized for her role as the President Of The United States Janie Orlean in the farce Don’t Look Up.
Jennifer Aniston was singled out for her work in The Morning Show, as were Billy Crudup and Mark Duplass, but co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Julianne Margulies were both off the list.
Leading the pack: Succession was the most nominated TV series with five mentions, with The Morning Show and Ted Lasso not far behind on four
Ansel Elgort was not given a nod for his work as the lead Tony in West Side Story. And Rita Moreno was not given a shout out for her role as Doc’s widow Valentina. But their co-stars Rachel Zegler and Ariana DeBose made the list, as did director Steven Spielberg.
Jennifer Hudson was overlooked for her acting role as Aretha Franklin in Respect though she did get a nod for her song Here I Am (Singing My Way Home) which she worked on with Carole King and Jamie Hartman.
Selena Gomez was not nominated for her role in Only Murders In The Building though her costars Martin Short and Steve Martin were. The series landed in the Best TV Series, Musical Or Comedy category.
The nominations came after the awards received major backlash from both sponsors and stars.
NBC revealed in May that it would not air the 2022 Golden Globe awards in January, and criticism of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association reached such a pitch that Tom Cruise even returned his three awards.
The star won Best Actor at the Golden Globes for Jerry Maguire in 1997, Best Actor for Born on the Fourth of July in 1990 and Best Supporting Actor for his role in Magnolia in 2000.
Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson also led calls for a Golden Globes boycott, with Scarlett saying she had faced ‘sexist questions and remarks by certain HFPA members that bordered on sexual harassment.’
She released a statement that read: ‘As an actor promoting a film, one is expected to participate in awards season by attending press conferences as well as awards shows.
‘In the past, this has often meant facing sexist questions and remarks by certain HFPA members that bordered on sexual harassment. It is the exact reason why I, for many years, refused to participate in their conferences.’
She continued: ‘Unless there is necessary fundamental reform within the organization, I believe it is time that we take a step back from the HFPA and focus on the importance and strength of unity within our unions and the industry as a whole’.
Iconic: Ted Lasso starring Jason Sudeikis bagged four nods including a Best Actor nod for Jason
The HFPA also came under fire after it was revealed that none of their 90 members were black.
Amid the firestorm the HFPA have nominated nine people of colour across the acting and directing categories – the same number as for the 2021 awards.
The organization’s track record of overlooking black- and minority-led films and television series at the Golden Globes has also been frequently criticized.
Back in March, former president Philip Berk was expelled for forwarding an email dubbing Black Lives Matter a ‘hate movement,’ and two consultants hired to address the HFPA’s diversity issues quit over a lack of progress.
There were additional claims that the HFPA had not been inclusive enough to women or members of the LGBTQ community.
Delightful duo: The nominations featured an introduction from HFPA president Helen Hoehne, who vowed the organisation is becoming more diverse, while Snoop Dogg read out the list of nominees
Netflix and Amazon Studios both said they would cut ties with the HFPA if it didn’t swiftly enact more drastic changes.
‘We don´t believe these proposed new policies – particularly around the size and speed of membership growth – will tackle the HFPA´s systemic diversity and inclusion challenges, or the lack of clear standards for how your members should operate,’ Netflix co-chief executive Ted Sarandos wrote in a letter to the group.
WarnerMedia said it would cease holding screenings and other events for the HFPA until it made more substantial changes.
‘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 executives said in a letter. ‘We regret that as an industry, we have complained, but largely tolerated this behavior until now.’
In a statement, NBC said it believes the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is committed to reform. But the network said change can’t come quickly enough for next year’s Globes.
‘However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right,’ the network said. ‘As such, NBC will not air the 2022 Golden Globes. Assuming the organization executes on its plan, we are hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023.’
Oops: As the nominations were announced Snoop Dogg put his own unique spin on the pronunciation of acclaimed actors’ names
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association didn’t address the 2022 telecast in responding to NBC’s decision, but board members of the group laid out its schedule of reforms – ultimately leading to a revamped membership and board by early August, as well as numerous other policy changes.
‘Regardless of the next air date of the Golden Globes, implementing transformational changes as quickly – and as thoughtfully – as possible remains the top priority for our organization,’ the group said in a statement.
‘We invite our partners in the industry to the table to work with us on the systemic reform that is long overdue, both in our organization as well as within the industry at large.’
The press association then ratified plans to add at least 20 new members this year ‘with a specific focus on recruiting Black members’ and with a goal of increasing membership 50% over the next 18 months.
This year, the 78th Golden Globes ceremony was a ratings disaster, with viewership down 63 percent from 2020 and hitting an all-time low.
The 79th Golden Globe Awards are scheduled to take place on January 9, 2022
