The star-studded 79th Annual Golden Globe Awards might have kicked off 2022 awards season, but it certainly looked a lot different to how it has in previous years.
For starters, the winners were announced in a low-key ceremony that wasn't televised due to criticism aimed at HFPA, the organisation behind the event, around discrimination and lack of diversity.
This year's winning films included The Power of the Dog and West Side Story for 'Best Motion Picture' awards, not to mention Succession for 'Best TV series' (actors Sarah Snook and Jeremy Strong also won awards for their roles in the acclaimed show).
When it comes to the stars who've been dominating our screens of late, Nicole Kidman and Rachel Zegler won 'Best Actress' awards, when up against stiff competition from the likes of Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart for films Don't Look Up and Spencer, respectively.
Will Smith won a 'Best Actor' award for King Richard, a biographical drama about the heralded tennis champion sisters, Serena and Venus Williams.
In December, the president of Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) Helen Hoehne announced the nominees for the 2022 event, alongside American rapper Snoop Dog.
This year's Golden Globes also saw newcomers such as The Maid's Margaret Qualley and Succession's Snook nominated for the first time, as well as WandaVision's Elizabeth Olsen who, despite her sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley having had a successful acting career (before they ventured into fashion), was the first of her siblings to be up for such an award.
A look back a last year's awards show and the 2021 Golden Globes marked a progressive time for women in film. The event saw three women - Regina King, Emerald Fennell and Chloé Zhao - nominated for the Best Director category, the latter of won the title for her neo-Western drama Nomadland.
Netflix's royal drama The Crown also reigned supreme and saw Emma Corrin, who portrayed Princess Diana in season four of the series, win the Best Actress accolade.
Promising Young Woman starring British actor Carey Mulligan, Emily Paris featuring Lily Collins and Normal People starring Daisy Edgar-Jones were also nominated for awards at last year's event.
Ahead of the 2022 event, here is everything you need to know about the 2021 Golden Globes:
When was the 2022 Golden Globes?
Sunday January 9, 2022.
Who hosted the 2022 Golden Globes?
After news that this year's Golden Globes wouldn't be televised, no celebrities signed up for presenting this year's awards.
Last year's event saw comedic duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler host the show for the fourth time. During the ceremony the pair presented the virtual event separately from their respective coasts, New York City and Los Angeles, amid the pandemic.
The likes of Margot Robbie, Tiffany Haddish and Kate Hudson also presented awards.
What's the 2022 Golden Globes controversy?
NBCUniversal announced in May 2021 that it would not broadcast the Golden Globes like usual, following issues around HFPA's lack of diversity, reported the New York Times.
The organisation said in a statement: 'We continue to believe that the H.F.P.A. is committed to meaningful reform. However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the H.F.P.A. needs time to do it right. As such, NBC didn't air the 2022 Golden Globes. Assuming the organisation executes on its plan, we are hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023.'
In the wake of the decision, the HFPA vowed to improve its representation on this front, calling on its 'partners in the industry' to collaborate with them to make change happen.
Black Widow actor Scarlett Johansson revealed to Variety last year that she had decided to 'step back' from the HFPA, as a result of 'sexist questions and remarks', until it puts more substantial reforms in place.
In addition, the NYT reported that actor Tom Cruise had returned three of Golden Globes.
An email from the Golden Globes talent booker, obtained by Variety, read: 'The Golden Globes will move forward with a small event on January 9th that will not only award the best performances in television and film for 2021, but also on recognising the importance of supporting diverse creatives across the industry.
'The event this year will celebrate and honour a variety of diverse, community-based programs that empower inclusive filmmakers and journalists to pursue their storytelling passions. The HFPA has financially supported important underserved organisations for decades and will continue to invest in the future leaders of our industry.'
What precautions were taken amid Covid-19?
The same email from the Golden Globes talent booker addressed the 'strict' measures being put in place at the event as a result of the pandemic.
As well as limiting the number of guests at the event, those in attendance were required to show proof of their full vaccination and booster shot, as well as a negative PCR test.
