The 79th Golden Globe awards were very different from the other iterations of the annual event. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) conducted the Golden Globes Awards without the usual red carpet event and ceremony.
This year's event was held as a private event, and there was no live-streamed component. The awards were announced on the Golden Globes social media handle and the HFPA's website. Since the scandal affected HFPA for its alleged lack of diversity, it was a wise decision. It was announced that the HFPA did not have even one Black member. American media network NBC refused to broadcast the ceremony, as many actors and studios also boycotted the event. The HFPA has since attempted diversification amongst its ranks.
The 79th Golden Globe awards' nominations were disclosed by HFPA's president Helen Hoehne and rapper Snoop Dogg.
Heading into the event, Jane Campion's period western The Power of the Dog and Kenneth Branagh's coming-of-age film Belfast led nominations with seven entries each. HBO's satirical series Succession received five nominations.
The Power of the Dog bagged the Golden Globes for the Best Motion Picture-Drama, Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role-Motion Picture, and Best Director-Motion Picture.
Steven Spielberg's musical West Side Story won the awards for Best Motion Picture-Comedy/Musical, Best Actress in a Motion Picture-Musical/Comedy, and Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture.
HBO's TV series, the Succession, won the Best Television series- Drama, Best Actor in a Television series- Drama, and Best Supporting Actress-Television.
