2022 Golden Globe Winners
The Award Show That Shall Not Be Named
except in the title decided its best course of action after getting booted by NBC was not to stream their event, not to release a list of winners all at once, but to announce each winner one by one with a cringy tweet. They weren't even saying what some people even won for, which I'm sure casual awards season watchers loved. It was stupid, but I did 15/25 with my picks. Here's the list of winners + some quick thoughts.
Best Motion Picture - Drama
The Power of the Dog
I'm glad this came out on top. I wasn't so sure after Screenplay was announced, but it's what I hope will win Best Picture at the Oscars.
Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy
Don’t Look Up
West Side Story
This was an easy win for them. I really hope I can find time to go to the theater and see it soon.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama
Jessica Chastain (“The Eyes of Tammy Faye”)
Olivia Colman (“The Lost Daughter”)
Nicole Kidman (“Being the Ricardos”)
Lady Gaga (“House of Gucci”)
Kristen Stewart (“Spencer”)
This was a big shocker to me as Kristen seemed like such a front runner, then I remember how much the Globes love celebrities and they need all the help they can get to get into good graces right now. I won't consider Kidman a huge contender unless she wins SAG too.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy
Marion Cotillard (“Annette”)
Alana Haim (“Licorice Pizza”)
Jennifer Lawrence (“Don’t Look Up”)
Emma Stone (“Cruella”)
Rachel Zegler (“West Side Story”)
I love it when new actresses win, so even though I haven't seen her performance yet, I'm happy for her.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama
Mahershala Ali (“Swan Song”)
Javier Bardem (“Being the Ricardos”)
Benedict Cumberbatch (“The Power of the Dog”)
Will Smith (“King Richard”)
Denzel Washington (“The Tragedy of Macbeth”)
I feel like this is a similar case to Kidman. Will Smith is a huge star, so them fawning over him instead of Cumberbatch, who I thought would win makes sense. Still, Smith was excellent, so even though I'm team Cumberbatch this year I'm glad he won something.
Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy
Leonardo DiCaprio (“Don’t Look Up”)
Peter Dinklage (“Cyrano”)
Andrew Garfield (“tick, tick … Boom!”)
Cooper Hoffman (“Licorice Pizza”)
Anthony Ramos (“In the Heights”)
I'm happy for Garfield. There's been so much hype for him these past few months.
Best Supporting Actress, Motion Picture
Caitriona Balfe, “Belfast”
Ariana DeBose, “West Side Story”
Kirsten Dunst, “The Power of the Dog”
Aunjanue Ellis, “King Richard”
Ruth Negga, “Passing”
Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture
Ben Affleck (“The Tender Bar”)
Jamie Dornan (“Belfast”)
Ciarán Hinds (“Belfast”)
Troy Kotsur (“CODA”)
Kodi Smit-McPhee (“The Power of the Dog”)
I'm so happy for Kodi. I love it when younger actors win too.
Best Original Score, Motion Picture
“The French Dispatch” — Alexandre Desplat
“Encanto” — Germaine Franco
“The Power of the Dog” — Jonny Greenwood
“Parallel Mothers” — Alberto Iglesias
“Dune” — Hans Zimmer
Best Picture, Foreign Language
“Compartment No. 6”
“Drive My Car”
“The Hand of God”
This one will be jumping to the top of my watch list, even though it's SO long.
Best Screenplay, Motion Picture
The Power of the Dog
Don’t Look Up
Being the Ricardos
This win absolutely baffles me and I liked Belfast. Power of the Dog should've won.
Best Original Song, Motion Picture
“Be Alive,” “King Richard”
“Dos Oruguitas,” “Encanto”
“Down to Joy,” “Belfast”
“Here I Am,” “Respect”
“No Time to Die,” “No Time to Die”
Best Motion Picture, Animated
“My Sunny Maid”
“Raya and the Last Dragon”
I was not crazy about Encanto. I thought the songs were horrid, though I did like Mirabel, the lead character.
Best Director, Motion Picture
Kenneth Branagh (“Belfast”)
Jane Campion (“The Power of the Dog”)
Maggie Gyllenhaal (“The Lost Daughter”)
Steven Spielberg (“West Side Story”)
Denis Villeneuve (“Dune”)
AS SHE SHOULD BE
Best Television Series, Drama
The Morning Show
I'm very happy with this win, even though I thought they'd go with Squid Game. Season 3 was fantastic.
Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy
Only Murders in the Building
I only watched a few episodes of Hacks, and I liked it. I plan on watching all of it, but over Ted Lasso? Nah.

Lee Jung-jae (Squid Game)

Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Drama
Uzo Aduba (In Treatment)
Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show)
Christine Baranski (The Good Fight)
Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale)
