No-Show Golden Globes: The 2022 Complete Winners List

A complete guide to the movies, TV shows and performers who took home accolades from the 79th Golden Globe Awards


While the Golden Globes have long been a fun-filled fête full of A-list film and TV stars eating and, more memorably, drinking throughout the ceremony, this year’s event was markedly different. Unlike in years past, the 79th Golden Globe Awards were not televised. Gone was the familiar banter between hosts like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who presented the show from opposite coasts last year, even amid a pandemic. Instead, after a year of controversy for the Hollywood Foreign Press, the party went off without a red carpet or any celebrity presenters. And in lieu of its signature ceremony, the HFPA unveiled winners and losers via…Twitter.

The HFPA has long been considered a grift for its members, who’ve been accused of more or less accepting bribes in the form of lavish press junkets where they hobnob with stars. But the real trouble started last February, when an L.A. Times investigation revealed that the organization had no Black members among its 87 voters. The report came after several acclaimed Black-led films, such as Judas and the Black Messiah and Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods, failed to receive nominations for best picture at the 2021 ceremony, sparking outrage at the voting bloc’s lack of diversity. A few months later, NBC announced it would not broadcast the 2022 Golden Globes, and several other networks and streaming services severed ties with the HFPA indefinitely. Tom Cruise even gave back the three Globes he’d won.

In December, the HFPA shared an open letter detailing its efforts to improve its culture, stating it had recruited the “largest and most diverse group of journalists to date, all of whom are excited to be first-time voters this year.” The organization also unveiled a five-year partnership with the NAACP that will “address diversity issues within our organization and Hollywood overall.” The HFPA additionally noted that it had taken “the time to reflect on past missteps and reform our organization for the better. We have worked tirelessly to not only adopt changes addressing policies and conduct, diversity and equity, and voting but to implement these changes thoroughly and meaningfully.”

That said, this year’s crop of Globes hopefuls were still, well, pretty white. Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast and Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog were the top nominees in the film category, with seven nods each. In the TV world, Succession led the pack with five nominations, with The Morning Show and Ted Lasso coming up just behind the series with four nominations each.

Some projects focused on people of color did make appearances in the winners’ circle: Steven Spielberg’s remake of West Side Story took home three Golden Globes, including Best Picture, Musical or Comedy, while Will Smith scored Best Actor in a Drama for his portrayal of Venus and Serena Williams’ dad in the biopic King Richard. Most notably, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez made history as the first transgender actor to take home a Golden Globe for her role as Blanca on Pose.

Otherwise it was largely business as usual, with Succession and its stars dominating three categories, like Best Television Series, Drama, and The Power of the Dog taking home three trophies, too, including Best Motion Picture, Drama and Best Director, Motion Picture.

Maybe next year we’ll see the full impact of the changes the HFPA has instituted. Until then, party privileges are still revoked.
