Most anticipated nominations
The complete list of Golden Globe nominations was announced on December 12, 2022. The most anticipated among the many nominations are Top Gun: Maverick, Avatar: The Way Of Water, and RRR. The Banshees of Inisherin managed to bag the most number of nominations, followed by Everything Everywhere All At Once. Shows like The Crown, Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Only Murders in the Building, Pam & Tommy, and White Lotus are also on this list.
The Golden Globe controversy
Hollywood’s most anticipated award ceremony ran into a controversy last year after the live streaming of the Golden Globe Awards was cancelled. The foundation came under the radar for its Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s (HFPA) membership, nomination procedure, and lack of diversity. People called out the jury for having zero black members within the HFPA.
Much more controversial than this was the 2018 event when Brendan Fraser revealed that former HFPA president, Philip Berk, had sexually assaulted him during a luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel in the summer of 2003. For the unversed, the actor won’t be attending the Golden Globe Awards.
