For this 79th edition of the Golden Globes, the focus was on security as the ceremony was held in secret, with no audience, no stars, and no radio. Even so, the prizes are awarded, and if HBO is required for series, Netflix follows suit on movie rewards, with that prize providing the surprise.
A special edition
Every year, the Golden Globes 2022 award the best series and films of the year. Last year, The Crown series marched in the ceremony and won no fewer than 4 trophies, symbolizing Netflix’s dominance in the market. On the film side, it was Chloé Zhao’s Nomadland (The Eternals) who delighted the statuette.
For this 79th edition, the framework was adapted to the current health situation, without an audience, without a presenter, but without television broadcasting and thus without the usual high mass. The winners of the various categories were announced through a tweet.
Best Dramatic Film
Netflix rubbed their hands again during the verdict, as Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog was sacred. This western drama, which brings together Kirsten Dunst and an inhabited Benedict Cumerbatch, kicked off on the streaming platform on November 11th and wins in particular ahead of Denis Villeneuves Dune. The Power of The Dog also won awards for Best Director (Jane Campion) and Best Supporting Actor for Kodi Smit-McPhee.
