The biggest snags and surprises

The 2022 Golden Globes have fallen… well, sort of.

This year’s ceremony was more of a press release, as the usual long TV broadcast with an opening monologue by Ricky Gervais, followed by celebrity presenters, had been canceled. Thanks to a scandal that erupted last year – when it was revealed how few journalists of color are involved in the organization, among other controversies – no channel has broadcast the 2022 Globes.

But, the show took place in moderate form as a private event, although no one got to watch the pan-camera at celebrities pretending to look happy when their contestants won. Despite the bizarre circumstances, the 2022 Golden Globes still had a star-murderer row of nominated hitters – including Denzel Washington, Ben Affleck, Will Smith, Olivia Colman, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Dornan, and Stephen Spielberg, among others.

Here are the snapshots and surprises from the list of 2022 Golden Globe winners.



O Yeong-su won a Golden Globe for Supporting Actor for his performance as Oh Il-nam in “Squid Game”

Korean actor O Yeong-su, 77, won the award for Best Supporting Actor – Television for his role in “Squid Game”. Although the bloody Korean show was an unlikely success on Netflix, O Yeong-su faced off against more famous stars such as Kieran Culkin (“Succession”), Brett Goldstein (“Ted Lasso”) and Mark Duplass and Billy Crudup (all two for “The Morning Show”). While Duplass and Crudup probably canceled each other – as is often the case when multiple actors are nominated for the same show – “Ted Lasso” and “Succession” are both critical darlings, while “Squid Game” is at. fashionable but new. So this victory is a surprise.

Jennifer coolidge

The biggest snags and surprises
Jennifer Coolidge as Tanya and Murray Bartlett as Armond in “The White Lotus”.

“Estate” star Sarah Snook, 34, won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress – Television. His performance as Shiv Roy is excellent and it is deserved. However, “Succession” gets a season 4, and probably more after that, so it will have a lot more luck. Jennifer Coolidge, 60, on the other hand, starred in a barn burner from a performance in “The White Lotus,” brimming with both humor and pathos as somewhat girlish Tanya McQuoid. delusional mourning her deceased mother in a Hawaiian resort. This show is getting a season 2, but it won’t because it would have a new cast. So this was her chance to win – and it’s kind of her first nomination as well, even though she’s an industry veteran with a slew of memorable roles (“Legally Blonde”, “American Pie” etc. ). To ignore it is a snub.

Kieran culkin

The biggest snags and surprises

Culkin’s “Estate” co-stars Jeremy Strong, 43, and Sarah Snook won Globes for their respective performances as goofy brother Roy Kendall and accomplice sister Shiv, but no dice for Kulkin, 39 years old, as a crowd-pleasing Roman. One fan even commented on Twitter regarding “Squid Game” actor O Yeong-Su who won the “supporting actor” category: “I loved him but kieran culkin was better imo.” Another fan tweeted, “it’s kieran and brett [Goldstein]by the way… ”Culkin’s show earned the love of the Golden Globes and also earned a victory in“ Best Drama Series, ”but he found himself empty-handed. “Kieran Culkin may be a 4-time Golden Globe loser, but he’s MY 4-time Golden Globe loser,” a fan proclaimed, while Culkin’s wife posted a photo to her Instagram story where she wrote “loser” on her face.

Michaela Jaé (Mj) Rodriguez

The biggest snags and surprises
MJ Rodriguez made history as the first winner of the Golden Globe Trans in a major actor category for “Pose”.

Rodriguez, 31, won the Globe for Best Actress in a Television Drama for her role in FX’s “Pose” as “stay-at-home mom” Blanca Rodriguez, making history as the first trans actress to win a large category of actor. That’s a surprise, considering she was up against Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) – who seems to keep winning even though this show is more than tired – Christine Baranski (“The Good Fight”), Jennifer Aniston (“The Morning Show”) and Uzo Aduba (“In Processing”), who The Post said would win. “Ok f – k globes and all that. But THIS IS GOOD SH-T JUST HERE,” a fan ecstatic tweeted. Another one commented, “MJ Rodriguez is FINALLY recognized and awarded by the Golden Globes for her role in Pose and she can’t even give a proper speech. I don’t like that.

Will smith

The biggest snags and surprises

The biggest snags and surprises
Nicole Kidman as Lucille Ball and Javier Bardem as Desi Arnaz in “Being the Ricardos”.

Kidman, 54, won Best Actress in a Film – Drama category for her portrayal of Lucille Ball in “Being the Ricardos”. It’s a huge upheaval because no one expected her to win. She faced Jessica Chastain (“The Eyes of Tammy Faye”), Olivia Colman (“The Lost Daughter”), Lady Gaga (“House of Gucci”) and Kristen Stewart (“Spencer”). Stewart was the favorite to win, with both Gaga and Colman seen as possible upsets. Kidman wasn’t even considered a possibility, especially since there were negative reactions to his casting. “Nicole Kidman has already won 5 times. I’m sure she will be nominated again in the future because she produces such a great job. Kristen Stewart knocked down Spencer. It was stolen here … “a fan Tweeted.
