Golden Globes 2022 winners give us first look at this years Oscars frontrunners

Awards season is officially in full swing thanks to the Golden Globes 2022 – but not quite as we know it. This year’s ceremony was not televised or live-streamed, and the winners were instead announced on social media.

The Power of the Dog and West Side Story were the frontrunners in the motion picture categories, with both movies picking up three awards each. The Power of the Dog won Best Motion Picture – Drama, while Jane Campion won Best Director – Motion Picture and Kodi Smit-McPhee won Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture. West Side Story picked up the gong for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, as well as leading and supporting acting awards for Rachel Zegler and Ariana DeBose.

While the Oscar nominees haven’t been announced yet, the Golden Globes winners are usually a pretty good indication of who’s set to become a frontrunner at the Academy Awards. In 2021, for example, Nomadland and its director Chloé Zhao won Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Director at the Golden Globes before going on to win Best Picture and Best Director at the Oscars.

Meanwhile, Succession led the way in the television categories with three wins: Best Television – Drama and Best Actor – Television Series Drama and Best Supporting Actress – Television Series for Jeremy Strong and Sarah Snook, who play siblings Kendall and Shiv Roy. Mj Rodriguez became the first trans woman to win a Golden Globe – she picked up the gong for Best Actress – Television Series Drama for her performance in Pose.
