@TheGoldenGlobes: 280 characters per category


A little birdie told us that the Golden Globes took place on January 9, 2022. However, if you don’t have Twitter, you might have missed the Golden Globes altogether!

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (“HFPA”) announced the annual Golden Globes winners via Twitter. In an unprecedented move, the HFPA has adopted this format instead of its usual glamorous red carpet event.

Unfortunately, the HFPA social media event was riddled with confusion and awkward tweets. For example, when West Side Story won Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, the HFPA tweeted, “If laughter is the best medicine, @WestSideMovie is the cure for whatever ails you.”

West Side Story, a film adaptation of the acclaimed Broadway musical, is a modern take on Romeo and Juliet. Like West Side Story is an interpretation of Shakespeare’s tragic play, it’s not the movie to turn to if you’re looking for a healing laugh. Realizing their mistake, the HFPA edited their tweet to replace “laugh” with “music”, but not before the internet immortalized the mistake.

Many tweets also failed to mention the productions for which the actor or actress received the award. For example, the HFPA announced Andrew Garfield as Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, but did not indicate that he was awarded for his performance in Tick, tick…boom. This error caused Golden Globes followers to keep a new tab on their browser open with Google handy in case they needed to find the project associated with each winner.

The decision to hide behind the tweets was likely due in part to NBC’s refusal to air the Golden Globes following criticism of the HFPA’s lack of diversity.

Although the event did not have its usual grandeur, there were two historic victories that did not go unnoticed. Michaela Jaé Rodriguez was nominated for Best Actress in a Drama Series for her role in Pose, becoming the first transgender actress to win a Golden Globe. Additionally, O Yeong-su received Best Supporting Actor – Series, Miniseries or Television Movie for his portrayal of “Player 001” in squid game, become the first Korean actor to win a Golden Globe.

The Golden Globe Awards traditionally mark the start of Hollywood’s awards season. Although this year is off to a rocky start, these productions and artists deserve to be celebrated. Stay tuned as we eagerly await the official nominations for the 94th Academy Awards.
