The 2022 Golden Globe winners were announced on January 9, but the response to them was subdued, given that there wasn’t a ceremony (after the controversy surrounding the Hollywood Foreign Press Association) or a livestream (so fans had to keep an eye on the website and social media).

In fact, only a few of the winners shared their reactions to the recognition. Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, who took home the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama for her work on Pose, made history by being the first trans actress to win a Golden Globe and noted the importance of that. Also acknowledging the wins were Nicole Kidman (for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture — Drama for Being the Ricardos), Rachel Zegler (for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy for West Side Story) and Ariana DeBose (for Best Supporting Actress — Motion Picture for West Side Story).

It seemed that people were instead paying tribute to Bob Saget, following the news that the Full House star passed away on January 9. A cause of death has not yet been given for the actor-comedian, who was in the middle of a stand-up tour.

When it came to reactions to the Golden Globes from the fans, there were the usual tweets both celebrating the winners and disappointed that a favorite didn’t take home the award. And some people even forgot that the awards were being announced.
