The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA)—which has taken a critical drubbing over its lack of diverse membership as well as its questionable standards and conduct—announced nominations for its 2022 Golden Globes on Dec. 13.

Rapper Snoop Dogg and new HFPA President Helen Hoehne read the nominations, with the musician frequently mangling names.

According to Deadline, Kenneth Branagh's Belfast (Focus Features) and Jane Campion's The Power of the Dog (Netflix) led all nominations on the film side. HBO/HBO Max tops the TV side with 10 nods, including a leading five for reigning Emmy champ Succession.

The LGBTQ+ demographic is represented by actors and roles, ranging from nods for the show Pose to nominations for actors taking playing gay characters in the film The Power of the Dog.

On the movie side, the Best Motion Picture (Drama) nods went to Belfast, Coda, Dune, King Richard and The Power of the Dog; in the Musical or Comedy category, Cyrano; Don't Look Up; Licorice Pizza; Tick, Tick…Boom! and West Side Story garnered nominations.

Best actress (drama) nods went to Jessica Chastain (The Eyes of Tammy Faye), Olivia Colman (The Lost Daughter), Nicole Kidman (Being the Ricardos), Lady Gaga (House of Gucci) and out actress Kristen Stewart (Spencer). Benedict Cumberbatch, playing a gay rancher in The Power of the Dog, received a best actor nod alongside Mahershala Ali (Swan Song), Javier Bardem (Being the Ricardos), Will Smith (King Richard) and Denzel Washington (The Tragedy of Macbeth).

Lead acting nods on the musical/comedy side went to Jennifer Lawrence (Don't Look Up), Emma Stone (Cruella), Alana Haim (Licorice Pizza), Anthony Ramos (In the Heights) and Andrew Garfield (Tick, Tick…Boom!), among others.

Supporting nods went to, among others, Jamie Dornan (Belfast), Ruth Negga (Passing), Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Power of the Dog) and Ariana Debose (West Side Story).

One of the Best Motion Picture (Animated) nominees is Flee—which focuses on the character, the man he is about to marry and a hidden past.

Regarding television, Best Television Series (Drama) nods went to LGBTQ series Pose, Lupin, The Morning Show, Squid Game and Succession. Best musical/comedy series nominations went to The Great, Hacks, Only Murders in the Building, Reservation Dogs and Ted Lasso.

Best actress (drama) nods went to Uzo Aduba (In Treatment), Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show), Christine Baranski (The Good Fight), Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale) and Michaela Jae Rodriguez (Pose)—a breakthrough nod for the trans thespian who has also earned an Emmy nomination. Succession's Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong earned nominations for best actor, along with Lee Jung-Jae (Squid Game), Omar Sy (Lupin) and out actor Billy Porter (Pose).

Hannah Einbinder (Hacks), Elle Fanning (The Great), Issa Rae (Insecure), Tracee Ellis Ross (Black-ish) and Jean Smart (Hacks) received nods in the Best Actress (Musical/Comedy) category. Best Actor nominations went to Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), Nicholas Hoult (The Great), Steve Martin and Martin Short (both for Only Murders in the Building), and Jason Sudeikis (Ted Lasso).

Ewan McGregor received a nomination (Best Actor in a Limited Series, Anthology Series, or a Motion Picture Made for Television) for playing the title character in Halston.

In October, interim HFPA CEO Todd Boehly and Hoehne said the group is planning to have some sort of awards ceremony Jan. 9 despite not having a broadcast home. NBC is no longer broadcasting the event.
