Hollywood can condemn the Golden Globes all they want — they still matter


Turning down a major award is incomprehensible to we normals, who wake up dreaming of some recognition from our Starbucks barista. But expect woke Hollywood to do just that after the 2022 Golden Globe Award nominations were announced Monday.

The selections were prudent and logical, especially for the often loony Globes. Best Motion Picture — Drama included “Belfast,” “CODA,” “Dune,” “King Richard” and “Power of the Dog” and Motion Picture — Comedy or Musical had “Cyrano,” “Don’t Look Up,” “Licorice Pizza,” “Tick, Tick… Boom!” and “West Side Story.” 

However, the group that hands out these trophies, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, has been mired in controversy ever since it was revealed that the relatively small organization has no black members. 

NBC then cancelled the 2022 broadcast and Tom Cruise, when not shouting at the “Mission: Impossible” crew, returned his three awards. Does Scientology hand out sainthoods? The lack of diversity has since been remedied, the HFPA said, with 21 new additions. That makes the voting body 34% Asian, Latino and black.

No matter. Haters gonna hate, and celebs gonna virtue signal. Most stars and studios will pretend Monday’s announcement never happened and instead put their focus on other prizes people don’t care about, like the Critics Choice Awards and Screen Actors Guild Awards. Don’t be shocked if some A-listers outright refuse their Globe nomination.

But if they are interested in winning a little thing called an Oscar, this would be a very dumb move.

The Golden Globes are the Iowa Caucus of awards season. Why do they get to go first? Why does a tiny group of homogenous voters get to hold such outsize influence on the Academy Awards? Why is every contender trying to sway them with fun dinners? 

The answer is history. The Globe have been a silly staple for 77 years, being broadcast since 1960. Viewers are comfortable with them. Just because of a membership controversy that few average Americans paid any attention to, and the ceremony resultantly not being aired on NBC, won’t change their impact. People aren’t watching award shows anymore anyway (a scant 9.23 million tuned into the Oscars this year) — they’re reading about the results.

So, you better believe the Globes still matter.

That Guillermo del Toro’s “Nightmare Alley” didn’t manage a single nod — after the director’s last film “The Shape of Water” was nominated for Best Drama and won the Best Picture Oscar — is a huge ding to its Oscars chances and box office hopes.

Because Cooper Hoffman and Alana Haim scored Best Actor and Actress — Comedy nominations for “Licorice Pizza,” they’re now firmly in the race.

Lady Gaga is doing a happy dance that she snuck into Best Actress — Drama for the otherwise snubbed “House of Gucci.” Same for Ben Affleck in “The Tender Bar.”

If Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story” triumphs, as it’s expected to, the film will become a surefire awards season juggernaut. That acclaimed movie-musical, by the way, did a meager $10.5 million at the box office last weekend. You can bet your bottom dollar (since that’s all it has!) that after netting Globe nods for Best Comedy or Musical, Actress — Comedy or Musical (Rachel Zegler), Supporting Actress (Ariana DeBose) and director (Spielberg), Disney is desperate to shout about it from the rooftops like Tony screaming “Maria!” and sell a few more tickets.

They won’t. How noble.
