The Globes revolution will not be televised.
The controversy-filled 2022 Golden Globe Awards will be unveiled unceremoniously Sunday, with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announcing winners on the official Golden Globes website and social media pages.
The event, which begins at 9 p.m. EDT at the Beverly Hilton in Southern California, will not be televised or live-streamed online.
Sunday’s ceremony became a stripped down affair after the Los Angeles Times reported last year that the HFPA, which organizes the Globes, didn’t have a single Black member.
The HFPA also drew criticism after the newspaper reported that 30 members of the organization were put up at a five-star hotel during a set visit for the series “Emily in Paris,” which later received two surprise nominations at the 2021 ceremony.
NBC, the typical telecaster of the Golden Globes, opted not to air the awards show this year due to the controversy, while celebrities from more than 100 public relations companies boycotted the event. Nominees remained conspicuously silent in December when the Globes unveiled the 2022 finalists.
Despite the backlash, the HFPA moved forward with the event, but didn’t announce the ceremony’s format until last week. There will be no audience at the Beverly Hilton, and media credentials weren’t made available to reporters covering the show.
Top film nominees for the award show include “The Power of the Dog,” a dark Western about a callous cattle rancher, and “Belfast,” a coming-of-age drama set in Northern Ireland during social unrest in the late 1960s. Both received seven nominations to lead all movies.
On the TV side, the satirical drama “Succession” led all series with five nominations.
