The accolade season of 2022 has kick-started with the premiere of the Golden Globes on Sunday. Unlike the previous version, this year’s annual awards had a monochromatic tone. With no Television broadcasts, gaga red-carpet walks, and media frenzy, the awarding ceremony is still recovering from the yearlong backlash. As for the winners, who were announced via Twitter, many actors and projects bagged the that were highly anticipated of it, others missed their shot by the whiskers.
The not-so-black Golden Globes
Despite being circled with endless accusations for being ethnic averse, the accolades still remain so white this year as well. Only a few projects that explored the narrative involving people of color made it to the winner’s chart. Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story pocketed three awards. While Will Smith was the only black actor to win the Best Actor award in King Richard by essaying the role of Venus and Serena William’s dad. One of the notable highlights of the event was the historic win of the first transgender actor. It was presented to Michaela Jaé Rodriguez for portraying Blanca on Pose.
