Golden Globes 2022: The full list of nominations

As another year is drawing to an end, many people have been looking back to figure out whether the film industry actually recovered from the disruptions in 2020 or not. If you aren’t sure about that yet, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has answered that question with a comprehensive list of nominations for the best films and television shows of the last year.

This selection comes on the back of the extreme criticism that the HFPA has faced recently, with many people reporting that the selection criteria are highly unethical and that there is a deliberate lack of diversity in the amplified nominations every year. Not only did they not have any diversity in their core organisation but it was also revealed that they welcomed the practice of expensive gift-giving to influence votes.

Due to such public backlash, the HFPA has undergone reorganisation over the course of the last year but it is still too early to tell whether their malpractices are behind them. A lot of the nominations this year are expected, including the highly acclaimed Succession starring Brian Cox (who also nabbed a Best Actor bid) as well as the wildly popular Squid Game.

Closer attention was paid to the contemporary landscape of foreign films as well, with Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car making it into the top foreign films category. Apart from these handful of correct decisions, it seems like the nominees have mostly been judged on the popularity of the shows and the films as well as the casts attached to the projects instead of the actual quality of the works.

See the full list, below.
