The most significant nominations of the year, Golden Globe, are here with their nominations for 2022. The 79th Award was announced by the Rapper Snoop Dogg and Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) President Helen Hoenhe. The ceremony will be held on 6th January, 2022, yet it would not be televised due to controversies. Hoenhe called 2021 a year of change and reflection for the organization amidst distrust issues.
The media outlets have revealed the financial and ethical lapses within the HFPA. So many have boycotted the nominees and refused to send the nomination reels. The Golden Globes endorsed a no-submissions required policy for 2022 nominations. The nominations were announced on 13th December. The media outlets, actors, and entertainment industry experts have planned to boycott the ceremony. The HFPA still intends to hold the ceremony, irrespective of the availability of a telecast partner.
