“Dog Power” for best drama and “West Side Story” among musicals and comedy dominate the Golden Globes. Jane Campion’s western took home three awards including Best Director and Best Supporting Actor, 25-year-old Kodi Smit-McPhee, while two more went to Steven Spielberg’s revival thanks to the 20-year-old’s stage presence. Rachel Zelger, in the part of Maria, and to Ariana DeBose, in that of Anita.
No VIPs, no red carpet
Without the fanfare of past editions, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the winners of 2022 on its social platforms without the participation of other journalists besides those of the organization and without celebrities on the red carpet and on stage as was customary in past years. Hacked by controversy since the Los Angeles Times revealed on the eve of the 2021 edition that it did not have a single black journalist among its then 87 members, the HFPA has given up this year from the glitzy gala of the past by opting for a live Twitter. without videos or photos in which the announcements of the winners were interspersed with the list of philanthropic initiatives funded by the group.
This year, in addition to the VIPs, NBC also parade, which in recent years had had the exclusive of the evening by paying tens of millions of dollars for the live broadcast. Returning to the awards ceremony, “Succession” and “Hacks” were declared the best television series of the year and the Logan Roy family saga modeled on the Murdoch clan won two more awards for interpretations of Jeremy Strong (prodigal son Kendall ) and Sarah Snook, sister Shiv. Two disappointments for Italy. The film by Japanese director Ryusuke Hamaguchi “Drive My Car”, based on a story by Haruki Murakami, won the Golden Globe for best foreign film in the competition in which Paolo Sorrentino was competing with “It was the hand of God”. The awards were also nominated for «Luca», the Disney Pixar animated film signed by the Italian Enrico Casarosa to which the jurors preferred «Encanto», a Disney production with original songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Other awards went to Nicole Kidman («Being the Ricardos») and Will Smith («King Richard»), Andrew Garfield (‘Tick, Tick… BOOM! «) And Kate Winslet for the limited series» Sea of Eastown «. The Golden Globes have for years been considered, rightly or wrongly, a barometer for the Oscars. They were also the kick-off of the season of awards for film and television, which this year, amid controversy and concerns from Covid, seems destined to take place on a narrow gauge.
The star of Squid Game O Yeong-su won the award for Best Supporting Actor on Television. The 77-year-old South Korean actor, who has never won a Golden Globe before, won first prize for his portrayal of Oh II-nam, also known as The Host or Player 001.
Congratulations to all of those nominated and all the 79th #GoldenGlobe winners! 👏
