LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Movie TV series “The Power of the Dog” and “Belfast” led nominations on Monday for the annual Golden Globes in a year shrouded in controversy and a fall ceremony. small.

“Belfast” is set in 1970s Northern Ireland, and “The Power of the Dog” directed by Jane Campion each received seven nods. They were followed by the global warming satire “Don’t Look Up”; “King Richard,” about the father of tennis champions Venus and Serena Williams; Steven Spielberg’s new version of the classic musical “Western Story” and coming-of-age story “Licorice Pizza” in four plays.

Netflix movies have a 17-time lead.

The Golden Globe winners will be announced on January 9, but the format of the ceremony is unclear after broadcaster NBC earlier this year dropped plans to broadcast https://www.reuters.com /world/us/nbc-cancels-2022 -golden-Globes-after-Ethics-diversity-complaints-2021-05-10, the lavish awards dinner in Beverly Hills after a controversy over the Newspaper Association Hollywood Foreign Press (HFPA), the group voted for them.

Critics oppose the HFPA’s lack of Black members and raise long-standing ethical questions about whether close ties to Hollywood studios influence the selection of nominees and winners win or not. Tom Cruise has returned the three Golden Globes that he won.

HFPA has since added 21 new members https://www.reuters.com/lifestyle/golden-globes-group-adds-new-members-it-works-diversify-2021-10-01, six of whom they are Black, gifts and favors are prohibited, and training on diversity and sexual harassment is implemented. The group currently has a total of 105 members.

Despite these moves, major film and television studios have tried to distance themselves from the titles and not submit shows for review as they have done in the past.

The HFPA said it made the choice this year by watching movies in cinemas, at screenings and on streaming platforms in what it calls a “fair and equitable voting process.” class”.

“While the Golden Globes will not be televised in January 2022, we will continue our 78-year tradition,” HFPA said in an open letter published ahead of Monday’s nomination. “The past eight months have been tough, but we’re proud of the changes we’ve made so far.”
