Golden Globe 2022 nominations: Snubs and surprises

Despite the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s ongoing controversy, the organization has announced the nominees for its 2022 Golden Globe Awards.

The list was dominated by shows like “Succession” and “Ted Lasso” while films like “West Side Story,” “Belfast” and “The Power of the Dog” all raked in nominations, as expected.

While this year’s awards will look different – as NBC will not broadcast an awards ceremony due to the HFPA’s scandal – one thing was the same about the list of nominations: It was chock-full of snubs and surprises.

Only so many stars, filmmakers and artists can be nominated each year, meaning that many are left off the list despite receiving praise and buzz for their work.

Among those noticeably absent from the list of nominees was “House of Gucci” star Jared Leto, who portrayed Paolo Gucci in the drama. The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman received heaps of critical praise for his performance, but ultimately only his co-star Lady Gaga received a nod, meaning Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons and Salma Hayek were also left off the board.

“Respect” star Jennifer Hudson has been considered a strong awards contender for playing Aretha Franklin in the biopic, but ultimately only nabbed a nomination for co-writing the song “Here I Am (Singing My Way Home)” with Carol King.

Similarly, “WandaVision” star Kathryn Hahn was unable to secure herself a spot on the list, despite rave reviews and endless fanfare.

Hollywood icons Meryl Streep (“Don’t Look Up”) and Rita Moreno (“West Side Story”) were both considered likely nominees this year as well, but didn’t make the list.

Lin-Manuel Miranda was also expected to hit the board multiple times having worked as an actor, director, producer and songwriter on many films this year (“tick, tick… BOOM!,” “In the Heights,” “Encanto” and “Vivo”), he ultimately only landed one nomination for co-writing the song “Dos Orugitas” from Disney’s “Encanto.”
