Golden Globes 2022 - Sweeping Under the (no-red)Carpet

Hi all, this is a rundown of the results of this years biggest non-event in the industry and my honest, immediate thoughts pertaining to them. We're going to do the same for BAFTAs and the Oscars when their time comes, so get used to it. Apologies in advance if this goes on a bit, but there is quite a bit to go through. I'm going to leave the politics aside, as a results round-up doesn't really warrant my thoughts on the HFPA. Right, let's get to it...

Drama Motion Picture

Winner - The Power of the Dog



King Richard


My Pick - King Richard

Of what was nominated, I have only got around to seeing Dune and King Richard (you can my review on these very pages), so really comment on the validity of this choice. So I woon;t dawdle over it. I will certainly have seen them all by the time the Oscar nominations are announced, of course.

Actor in a Drama Motion Picture

Winner - Will Smith/King Richard

Benedict Cumberbatch/The Power of the Dog

Mahershala Ali/Swan Song

Javier Bardem/Being the Ricardos

Denzel Washington/The Tragedy of Macbeth

My Pick - Will Smith/King Richard

Again, having not seen all of the nominated efforts, I have to go with what I have seen, and this was a close one for me personally, but I think Will Smith just edges it from Mahershala Ali, who I very nearly chose instead for Swan Song.

Animated Feature Film

Winner - Encanto



Raya The Last Dragon

My Sunny Maad

My Pick - Encanto

Encanto is the only one on the list I have seen so far, so it has to get my vote. Disney has its grip pretty firmly on this by all accounts, but did it really have much competition?

Actress in a Drama Motion Picture

Winner - Nicole Kidman/Being The Ricardos

Jessica Chastain/The Eyes of Tammy Faye

Lady Gaga/The House of Gucci

Olivia Colman/The Lost Daughter

Kristen Stewart/Spencer

My Pick - Kristen Stewart/Spencer

This was a really tricky one. There a some great performances in here. Encompassing a famous person is particularly difficult and I think Stewart edges out Kidman for her portrayal of Diana Spencer. Saying this, Colman, Gaga and Chastain (I'm told) are all solid too.

Drama TV Series

Winner - Succession


The Morning Show


Squid Game

My Pick - Squid Game

Not seen it, so can't say really. Only thing on here I have come across is Squid Game, which I loved, so had to vote for it.

Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture

Winner - Kodi Smit-McPhee/The Power of the Dog

Troy Kotsur/CODA

Ben Affleck/The Tender Bar

Jamie Dornan/Belfast

Ciaran Hinds/Belfast

My Pick - Ben Affleck/The Tender Bar

Ignorance stops me from picking anyone apart from Affleck was who great.

Original Song

Winner - Billie Eilish - No Time To Die

Yep, no arguments from me here. May as well have been the only nomination in the list.

Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture

Winner - Ariana DeBose/West Side Story

Kirsten Dunst/The Power of the Dog

Ruth Negga/Passing

Aunjanue Eliss/King Richard

Caitriona Balfe/Belfast
