The entries for nominations will begin from Tuesday and those selected for contention will be announced on December 13.
The journalists’ association which curates the Globes recently revamped its organizational structure after it elected a new Board in September. Under the new bylaws, the members of the board were selected by a Credentials Committee that included five non-HFPA members, three HFPA members, and the Board President to ensure inclusivity after it received flak for being entirely homogeneous.
The HFPA’s reform plan was announced in the wake of the backlash that the organisation received after an LA Times investigation revealed that there were no black members among the 87 HFPA members. The Time’s Up organisation also called out the association for its lack of diversity and inclusion.
The Golden Globes’ curator was thus, boycotted by organisations like Netflix and Amazon Studios, along with several other brands. Its broadcasting partner NBC also distanced itself after the controversy.
The HFPA was further criticised for the Golden Globe nominations in its 2021 edition for not including potential Oscar frontrunners Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and Da 5 Bloods, both of which are black-led films.
It is thus, unclear as to how the Golden Globes will be aired in 2022, and what the nominations will look like.
Submissions for the upcoming edition will close on November 15.
