Paris, 2021-12-13 02:04:00. Golden Globe Nominations Announced | CTV News
NEW YORK – After widespread criticism forced the organization that presents the Golden Globes to lose its award-winning television program and reform its membership, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association continued to announce film and television awards nominees on Monday despite the skeptical entertainment industry.
Just as it has for many years, the HFPA gathered reporters at the Beverly Hilton to announce its picks for the 79th Golden Globes. But this time, there was no nationwide morning televised show or any instant celebrity celebrations. Hollywood mostly shrugged its shoulders.
HFPA, which usually has a few movie stars making its announcement, turned instead to Snoop Dogg, who read the candidates behind sunglasses and a red hat during a live broadcast on the Globes YouTube page. The majority of studios, PR firms and top-notch talent didn’t get much involved this year with the group, which has ditched its usual requirement to submit films for consideration. Critics said it was too early for the Hollywood Association of Foreign Journalists to return to business as usual. Some would rather see the globe disappear forever.
But the Press Association tried to keep its place in awards season on Monday, posting nominations for the likes of Will Smith (“King Richard”), Kristen Stewart (“Spencer”), “West Side Story”, breakout Rachel Ziegler, and Leonardo DiCaprio (“No”). Looking up”), Denzel Washington (“The Tragedy of Macbeth”), Ben Affleck (“The Tender Bar”) and Lady Gaga (“House of Gucci”).
Among the Canadians who received the nods were Quebec filmmaker Denis Villeneuve for Best Motion Picture Director with the sci-fi epic “Dune,” and Martin Short of Hamilton for Best Television Actor in a Musical/Comedy Series for his performance in true crime satire “Murder in the Building Only.” “
The nominees for Best Motion Picture Drama went to Jane Campion’s “Dunes,” Jane Campion’s “Western Dog Power”, family drama “Coda”, Rinaldo Marcus Green’s tennis biography “King Richard” and Kenneth Branna’s autobiography “Belfast.”
The Comedy or Musical Choices for Best Picture were: Adam McKay’s “Don’t Look Up” by Paul Thomas Anderson’s ’70s Poem to the San Fernando Valley “Licorice Pizza” by Steven Spielberg “West Side Story” and Lin-Manuel Miranda” Place Mark, put…Boom!” and Joe Wright’s “Cyrano.”
“Belfast” and “Dog Power” tied for the most nominations, with seven nominations each. Netflix dominated the nominees for the film with a total of 17 nods. HBO’s “Succession” topped the TV side with five nominations, including nominations for Best Drama and Best Actor in a Drama Series for the theme of Jeremy Strong’s recent New Yorker profile.
Such accolades usually spark a wave of elation in the frontrunners and their studios – an award victory to be announced on social media and in calls with reporters. On Monday morning, no candidate was immediately celebrated — publicly at least.
The Journalists’ Syndicate claims it has reconstituted itself in the nine months since it was introduced in 2021. “HFPA 2.0,” recently elected president Helen Hueyni said. The group has added a Chief Diversity Officer; reformed its board of directors; Appointment of 21 new members, including six black journalists; The NAACP brought on a five-year partnership; and update its code of conduct.
“It has been a year of change and reflection for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association,” Hohen said Monday.
It all came after the Los Angeles Times detailed some of the HFPA’s unethical behavior and revealed that its 87 voting members did not include a single black journalist. Studios said they would boycott The Globes and more than 100 PR films said their clients would not participate until the HFPA quickly implemented “deep and lasting change.” Tom Cruise returned his three planes to the group’s headquarters.
NBC, the Globe’s longtime communications station, said it would not broadcast the 2022 Globe because “changing that volume takes time and work.” The Globes are still setting a date for January 9 but haven’t shared any details on what kind of celebration it will be.
The Critics’ Choice Awards have sought to fill the void, even seeking to secure the Globes’ regular home at Beverly Hilton for her television broadcast. That show failed but the Critics’ Choice Awards will likewise take place on January 9, on TBS and The CW. The Critics’ Choice Awards also announced their nominees on Monday, with “Belfast” and “West Side Story” each issuing 11 nods.
Much of the Globes’ strength has always resided in its vibrant television broadcast, which is regularly one of the most-watched non-sports radio programs of the year. The Globes also act as a promotional tool for several award winners in theaters this December. But this year, few expect to see ads and TV commercials that win Golden Globe nominations.
