The announcement of the Golden Globes winners was a low-key affair this year due to several reasons, including the rise in COVID-19 cases across the globe and the controversies with television network NBC and Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).

Last year, the Golden Globes ceremony was marred by controversy due to the lack of racial diversity in their award panel and their nominations. The HFPA was also accused of making sexist and racist comments often, and reportedly seeking favours from celebrities and studios.

Celebrities too took part in the movement against HFPA. Scarlett Johansson joined Netflix, Amazon Studios, WarnerMedia and other companies in saying that they would no longer work with the HFPA unless it made changes that were impactful. Meanwhile, Tom Cruise returned the three Golden Globe awards he had won for his roles in Jerry Maguire, Magnolia, and Born on the Fourth of July.

What’s more, this was followed by US television network NBC announcing in May 2021 that they would not be broadcasting the Golden Globes 2022.

“We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform. However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right. 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,” NBC had said in the statement.
