‘The Power of the Dog’ was named Best Motion Picture (Drama) at the 2022 Golden Globes.
This year’s awards took place in private in Los Angeles on Sunday (09.01.22), with no celebrities in attendance and no television broadcast or livestream.
The HFPA previously came under fire for the lack of black representation among its members, and a social media campaign called Time’s Up was even launched to help highlight the issue.
What’s more, NBC announced that it would not televise the 2022 ceremony due to the lack of diversity.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association instead announced the winners via their website and social media.
Western ‘The Power of the Dog’ took home Best Drama, Best Director for Jane Campion, and Best Supporting Actor for Kodi Smit-McPhee, who starred alongside Benedict Cumberbatch [Phil] as Peter.
Steven Spielberg’s remake of the classic musical ‘West Side Story’ scooped Best Musical or Comedy Film, leading star Rachel Zegler [Maria] took Best Actress in the Comedy or Musical genre, and Ariana DeBose scooped Best Supporting Actress In A Motion Picture.
It was also a big night for TV’s ‘Succession’, which saw off competition from ‘Squid Game’, ‘The Morning Show’, ‘Pose’ and ‘Lupin’ to be named Best Television Series in the Drama genre.
The show’s star Jeremy Strong also nabbed Best Performance By An Actor In A Television Series (Drama) for his portrayal of Kendall Roy in the HBO television show and Best Supporting Actress went to Sarah Snook [Shiv Roy].
Elsewhere, Will Smith was named Best Actor In A Drama Film for his starring role as the father of tennis aces Venus and Serena Williams in ‘King Richard’, and Nicole Kidman was honoured with the same prize for her turn as Lucille Ball in ‘Being The Ricardos’.
Kate Winslet won Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series, Anthology Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for ‘Mare Of Easttown’, in which she stars as titular US detective Mare Sheehan, and Andrew Garfield nabbed the male counterpart for Lin-Manuel Miranda’s ‘tick, tick…BOOM!’.
Best Screenplay went to Sir Kenneth Branagh for the acclaimed coming-of-age drama ‘Belfast’.
Hans Zimmer took home Best Original Score for ‘Dune’, while ‘No Time To Die’ the James Bond theme was crowned Best Original Song.
