The best film and TV of 2021, according to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, has been revealed as winners for the 2022 Golden Globes were announced January 9. Among them were West Side Story for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, along with the film’s stars Rachel Zegler and Ariana DeBose for Best Performance By an Actress and Best Supporting Actress, respectively.
Also taking home honors were tick, tick…BOOM! star Andrew Garfield for Best Performance By An Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy and Pose leading lady Michaela Jaé Rodriguez for Best Performance By an Actress in a Television Series - Drama. The latter has reportedly made history by becoming the first transgender performer to win the coveted award.
Other notable theatre alumni winning Golden Globes this year for their performances on screen were Nicole Kidman (Being the Ricardos), Tony nominee Jean Smart (Hacks), and Succession stars Jeremy Strong and Sarah Snook. Encanto, featuring songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda, won Best Motion Picture – Animated and Kenneth Branagh took home Best Original Screenplay for his semi-autobiographical film Belfast.
As previously announced, the ceremony, always a lightning rod for conversation between the boozy annual ceremony and protests surrounding the HFPA’s equity and inclusion, was a subdued affair this time around. An untelevised press event announced the winners after NBC pulled the plug on an option to air following a report by The Los Angeles Times.
