The embattled Hollywood Foreign Press Association proceeded with its film awards Sunday night without a telecast, nominees, a red carpet, a host, press or even a livestream. Instead, members of the HFPA and some recipients of the group's philanthropic grants gathered at the Beverly Hilton Hotel for a 90-minute private event, announcing the names of the film and television winners on the organization's social media feeds.
Steven Spielberg's "West Side Story" won several big awards, for best picture comedy or musical, best actress for Rachel Zegler and best supporting actess for Ariana DeBose.
Netflix's gothic Western "The Power of the Dog" was named best picture drama, along with other honors for Jane Campion's direction and Kodi Smit-McPhee's supporting performance.

Other film winners included Will Smith for "King Richard," Nicole Kidman for "Being the Ricardos" and Andrew Garfield for "tick, tick...BOOM!" The Japanese film "Drive My Car," also a critics' group darling, got best non-English language motion picture, while "Encanto" won for animation.

Other times, the tweets were just downright baffling. In announcing the "West Side Story" win, the group initially wrote, "If laughter is the best medicine @WestSideMovie is the cure for what ails you" about the drama that's full of death and tragedy. They later deleted the tweet and wrote a new one about "music" being the best medicine.
Television winners included: Sarah Snook and Jeremy Strong for "Succession," which won best television drama, Jean Smart for "Hacks," which also won best television comedy, Jason Sudeikis for "Ted Lasso," Kate Winslet for "Mare of Easttown," O Yeong-su for "Squid Game" and Michael Keaton for "Dopesick." Barry Jenkins' "The Underground Railroad" got best limited series. The group said on its website that "Pose" star Michaela Jaé Rodriguez became the first trans person to win a Golden Globe.

The HFPA enlisted leaders of the groups it has given grants to to announce the winners. Arnold Schwarzenegger chimed in with a video message as well, thanking the group for recognizing him as the "new star of the year" in 1977.
That the organization proceeded with any kind of event came as a surprise to many in Hollywood. The HFPA came under fire after a Los Angeles Times investigation revealed in February ethical lapses and a stunning lack of diversity - there was not a single Black journalist in the 87-person group. Studios and PR firms threatened to boycott. Tom Cruise even returned his three Golden Globes, while other A-listers condemned the group on social media.
They pledged reformlast year, but even after a public declaration during the 78th show, their longtime broadcast partner NBC announced in May that it would not air the 2022 Golden Globes because "Change of this magnitude takes time and work." The broadcaster typically pays some $60 million for the rights to air the show, which ranks among the most-watched awards shows behind the Oscars and the Grammys.
Though often ridiculed, Hollywood had come to accept the Golden Globes as a legitimate and helpful stop in a competitive awards season. And for audiences around the world, it was a reasonably lively night, with glamorous fashion, major stars, the promise of champagne-fueled speeches, and hosts - from Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to Ricky Gervais - that regularly poked fun at the HFPA.EMBED
