Golden Globes: True diversity goes beyond the list of winners

Any diversity analysis of the Golden Globes should note that the “diversity controversy” it has been embroiled in for the past two years has nothing to do with the results (#GlobesSoWhite never Neither is a trending hashtag) and more about the composition of its presentation organization Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Key Takeaways for February 2022 Los Angeles Times Investigating headlines around the world is HFPA in its 70 has no black members; in a post-George Floyd murder world, that oversight is considered inexcusable , basically every major publicity house in Hollywood — who have long turned their noses up at their celebrity clients and tolerated all sorts of cheesy, unethical practices by the group — boycotted 2021 awards show, which is not co-operated by its broadcast Partner NBC for telecast .

After one year, 1235294541 1st Annual Golden Globes returns to TV Tuesday night, voted by HFPA 40 current members (six of whom are black), and 80 Non-member voters. How do these changes in voting bodies affect the results? Impossible to say for sure, but while the hosts are pretty diverse, one black host (who wasn’t shy to speculate ) was why he was invited ) and a handful of winners from systemically excluded backgrounds, the last two winners of the night were all white on stage: Best Musical/Comedy Movie The Banshee of Inisherin and Best Feature Film The Fabelmans.

These awards, however, were preceded by Abbott Elementary wins Best Comedy Series for its majority black cast. Earlier, while accepting her best actress award, star and creator Quinta Brunson praised the show’s racially diverse team, including her executive producers Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacher, “They were fantastic and supported my vision,” she said. “They’re all white males, and they’re like, ‘Okay, Kunta.'”

Brunson’s partner, Tyler James Williams, won Supporting Actor, the Golden Globes differentiated for the first time between series and limited series/TV movies. Although he is the fifth black actor to win a TV supporting role award, he is the first black actor to do so for a regular series. Zendaya was absent from the ceremony as she won another Best Actress award for her role in Euphoria, making three non-white winners stand out. .

In the film, three of the six acting categories come from the global majority: Everything Everywhere All Once Leading actress Michelle Yeoh and supporting actor Koon Fai and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever supporting actress Angela Bassett, who — gave her Leading actress wins What’s Love Got To Do With It — became the second black woman to win two Golden Globes for acting, after Whoopi Goldberg. Awards season, so their win tonight doesn’t necessarily speak to this particular voting body, but both suggest that Asian cast members are in 25 Both have been in the industry for years: “I remember when I first came to Hollywood,” said Yang, who started his career in Hong Kong. “Before I came here, it was a dream come true because look at this face. I came here and was told, ‘You’re in the minority.'”

Yeoh is fifth first Asian actress to win a Golden Globe (but only second in Best Motion Picture Actress category), in 1985 follows Awkwafina The Farewell ), and Quan is the fourth Asian actor (after Haing S. Ngor’s The Killing Fields first Asian actor after ).

However, another Asian artist did make Globes history: Composer MM Keeravani smashed multiple fandoms with action sensation from India “Naatu Naatu” by RRR, which beat several pop chart toppers for Best Original Song. He is the first Asian winner in his category and the Telugu song is the second non-English song to win since Italian drama Future Life , “Io sì (Seen)” by Diane Warren, at 2021 to win.

Guillermo del Toro won best animation for the Pinocchio movie Film award, he is 1235069756 Golden Globe, although Dragon House First season showrunner Miguel Sapochnik of Argentinian descent accepted the award for best episode on behalf of the show. Their inspiring and trailblazing careers: Cecil B. DeMille Award winner Eddie Murphy and Carol Burnett Award winner Ryan Murphy. The latter paid special tribute to his five collaborators with his acceptance speech – Michaela Jaé Rodriguez (Murphy asked the audience to applaud her, calling her Kim The first transgender winners of the Ball Awards at last year’s untelevised ceremony), Billy Porter, Nessie Nash-Bates, Matt Bomer and Jerry Mi Pope – as “Example of Possibilities.”

“I have dedicated the greater part of my life tonight to these wonderful actors as an expression of hope and progressive point of view,” he said. “When I was a young man in the 70 years, I never saw People like me win awards. It was and still is hard being an LGBTQ kid. You’re constantly being told you have to hide your light to survive. For the kids watching tonight I name MJ, Billy, Niecy , Matt and Jeremy as examples of possibilities. There is a path forward. Use them as your North Star. In 10 years, that’s all I’ve done in Hollywood. My mission is to make the unseen, the unloved, the people I aspire to be in pop culture Heroes seen in.”
