Golden Globes 2022: ‘King Richard,’ Issa Rae, Beyoncé Earn Big Nominations

The 79th annual ceremony will not be televised on NBC due to recent controversy.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association just announced the movies and television shows nominated for the 79th annual Golden Globes.

Let the award SZN hype commence.

Taking place on Jan. 9, 2022, the upcoming show will not air after NBC said back in May that it would not broadcast the awards show due to outrage sparked from a Los Angeles Times exposé that said there were zero Black members within the HFPA. Comprising 87 international journalists who determine the nominees and winners of the Golden Globes, and serve as early predictions to who will win the Oscars — the HFPA have revised itself to become “more inclusive” after boycotts among Hollywood elites.


Despite the organization completely overhauling how it does business, there were quite a few nominees that stand out in this year’s class. Denzel Washington, Mahershala Ali, and Will Smith stack the row on the “Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama” category, with the three earning distinctions for their roles in Macbeth, Swan Song, and King Richard, respectively. Barry JenkinsThe Underground Railroad, which was a cinematic tour de force on Amazon Prime, received a nod for “Best Limited Series, Anthology Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television”.

Issa Rae lists her third Golden Globe nomination for “Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy Series” alongside Tracee Ellis Ross, who is up for the award as part of the Black-ish cast. Anthony Anderson serves as her counterpart and anchor as part of the “Best Television Actor, Musical or Comedy Series” nominees.

King Richard, a major contender at this year’s Golden Globes for film, also features Aunjanue Ellis collecting a well-received nomination for “Best Supporting Actress”, while Beyoncé’s “Be Alive,” is up for “Best Original Song”.

It remains to be seen whether the 79th annual Golden Globes Awards, which usually fares well in the ratings column, will attract its usual slew of A-list attendees despite controversies and amendments.
