Golden Globes 2022: Power Of The Dog, West Side Story and Succession among big winners - but no celebrities at scaled-down event

·1-min read

Power Of The Dog, West Side Story and Succession are among the big winners at this year's Golden Globes - but the 2022 event was a very different affair to usual, held in private without celebrities following controversy over the diversity of its membership.

Winners were quietly announced on the Golden Globes website and social media, without the usual red carpet fanfare and with no broadcaster this year after the ceremony was dropped by NBC in 2021.

That followed a Los Angeles Times expose which found the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the organisation which runs the ceremony, had no black members voting for the awards - and included allegations of inappropriate "freebies" influencing votes.

After promising changes had been made, the awards were held in private in LA on Sunday (early Monday morning UK time), with gothic Western Power Of The Dog winning the awards for best drama, best director for Jane Campion and best supporting actor for Kodi Smit-McPhee, who plays a young man who forms a complicated bond with a cowboy, played by British actor Benedict Cumberbatch.

Steven Spielberg's reimagining of stage musical West Side Story won the award for the best musical or comedy film, while Rachel Zegler, who stars as Maria, was named best actress in the genre.

In the TV categories, Succession was named best drama, while stars Jeremy Strong and Sarah Snook picked up awards for best actor and best supporting actress for their roles as sniping brother and sister Kendall and Shiv Roy. Strong fought off stiff competition from his on-screen father Brian Cox, who plays media mogul Logan Roy, the head of the warring, wealthy family.
