The Golden Globes are back, after a year of intense controversy and scrutiny following backlash regarding the lack of diversity in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

the HFPA came under fire in what became a snowball of controversies, beginning with the startling announcement of the 2021 nominations with various snubs of Black talent, to the headline-making discovery that the organization itself had zero Black members, theGrio previously reported.

What followed was a series of very public criticisms of the association, including one from TIMES UP, who blasted both the association and NBC, the network that airs the annual ceremony, for their response, or lack thereof.

Since then, much of Hollywood has vowed not to work with the association, including major filmmakers, studios, and more. NBC itself also announced that they would not air the ceremony in early 2022, sharing in a statement, “Change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right.”

Still, it seems the HFPA has plans to continue with their annual ceremony, announcing the 2022 nominations early Monday morning. The list of nominations, including major recognition for films like King Richard and West Side Story and television series like Pose and Squid Game, are below:
