Golden Globes 2022: List of key nominees – Times of India

Belfast” and “West Side Story” are among the frontrunners for a drastically scaled-down 79th Golden Globes on Sunday, where winners will be unveiled via Twitter from an untelevised ceremony that is being boycotted by Hollywood.

The Globes — in the past billed as Tinseltown’s biggest party and the key first stop on the film awards circuit — have this year been stripped of their usual A-list glamour, as a row swirls over organizers’ ethical practices.

NBC has scrapped its TV broadcast, and instead the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — whose members vote on the Globes — will announce the winners on social media.

“Belfast,” Kenneth Branagh’s poignant black-and-white account of the outbreak of sectarian violence in the city of his birth during the late 1960s, topped the film nominations with seven, alongside Jane Campion’s “The Power of the Dog.”

Campion’s dark Western starring Benedict Cumberbatch, which tackles toxic masculinity in 1920s Montana, would be the second film directed by a woman to win the top best drama prize if it fends off “Belfast,” after last year’s “Nomadland.”

In the comedy or musical categories, Steven Spielberg‘s “West Side Story” remake flopped at the box office but was adored by critics, and is expected to score strongly with Globes voters.

It competes with “Don’t Look Up,” a star-studded climate change satire in which scientists played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence try to warn a distracted world — and the US president (Meryl Streep) — about their impending doom.

On the television side, “Succession,” HBO’s drama about a media tycoon’s warring family, leads with five nods.

But the award races, which are usually closely followed for the immediate boost to box office tallies and Oscar hopes that a Globes win can provide, have been hugely overshadowed by the long-brewing row over ethical lapses at the HFPA.

Here are the nominees in key categories for the 79th Golden Globe Awards, which will be handed out Sunday, with no audience present as the industry boycotts the troubled gala.
