Are the Nominees Responding to Their 2022 Golden Globe Nods?
While the Golden Globes are different for 2022 — no televised ceremony, submissions weren’t required for nominations — some of those who have been recognized for their performances have acknowledged the honor (though not as many as in years past).
While discussing the Succession Season 3 finale with The Hollywood Reporter, Brian Cox acknowledged his nomination and noted the changes from the past 20 years. “They are beyond what they used to be 20 years ago — it was a pretty moribund organization. I find it extraordinary because I don’t know the ins and outs of it, but certainly there’s a hell of a lot of amazing female journalists on the Golden Globes which were not present before. There’s some really good women there and they’re doing a great job, so I felt very sorry for them that there was this attack on the organization,” he said. “But if you’re honored, you’ve got to respond by saying ‘thank you,’ rather than go, ‘Oh yeah, you honored me, now f**k off.’ I think that would be absolutely the wrong thing to do, and I wouldn’t do that anyway. We always have this ambiguous thing about awards anyway; we always feel, ‘Is it about awards?’ It’s about the work.”
Others, including Jessica Chastain, Cynthia Erivo, Hannah Waddingham, and Omar Sy shared their reactions on Instagram. Check out their posts below.

Original Story (12/13/2021):
With the controversy surrounding the Golden Globes in 2022, will we be getting any reactions from the nominees? It doesn’t look like it, through statements or social media posts. (This will be updated if that changes.)
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has been called out regarding the lack of diversity and ethical conflicts among its members. As a result, NBC said in May it would not be airing the annual ceremony. “We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform. However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right,” the statement read. Studios (such as Netflix, WarnerMedia, and Amazon Studios) stopped working with the HFPA while waiting for meaningful change.
Changes were made, including adding the largest and most diverse group of 21 members, as well as a complete overhaul of its bylaws, “implementing sweeping changes from top to bottom that address ethics and code of conduct, diversity, equity and inclusion, governance, membership, and more, according to the HFPA.
For 2022 nominees, “submissions were not required for award consideration,” but “the HFPA accommodated filmmakers/studios who requested their content to be considered only for specific categories.”
Succession received the most nominations in the TV categories (with five, including Best Drama Series). The Morning Show and Ted Lasso each have four (including Best Drama Series and Best Musical/Comedy Series, respectively).
