Golden Globes: No ceremony, but plenty of big winners.

By: Adam Beam SUTV News

This year's Golden Globe awards looked drastically different than any of the years that came before. Following the 2021 controversy involving the lack of diversity within the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), many stars protested the ceremonies and refused to participate. Nevertheless, nominations were still made and winners were still selected.


Starting with the film categories, the Netflix drama "The Power of the Dog" took home the biggest award for Best Motion Picture, Drama, as well as Best Director (Jane Campion) and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture (Kodi Smit-McPhee). Another film to take home a trio of awards is Steven Spielberg's "West Side Story". The film took home Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, as well as Rachel Zegler and Ariana DeBose winning their respective acting categories. The companion in the musical category also includes Andrew Garfield for Best Actor.


Another frontrunner to win big, to the surprise of few, was Will Smith taking home Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama for his role in "King Richard".


Moving onto the television categories, Best Drama series went to "Succession" and Best Comedy or Musical series going to "Hacks". Best Limited Series, Anthology Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television went to the Amazon Prime series "The Underground Railroad". While many of the acting winners in these categories surprised few, one of the most satisfying wins of the night had to be for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Supporting Role. This award went to Korean actor, Oh Yeong-Su for his fan-favorite role as the Old Man in Netflix's "Squid Game".
