Golden Globe Awards 2022: No stars, no red carpet, no media.

Updated: A stripped-back event next week and no live-streaming of winners.

Details for next week’s Golden Globe Awards have finally been trickling out, having been very elusive given no broadcaster and rising COVID cases in the USA.

The event is indeed proceeding next Monday (Australian time) but will look quite different at the Beverly Hilton.

There will be no red carpet, no accredited media, no celebrity presenters, nominees or even winners. Only select Hollywood Foreign press Assoc. members and philanthropy grantees will be present in the room.

The HFPA is still determining whether there will be a livestream or how winners will be announced on social media. Proof of vaccination and booster shot, along with a negative PCR test within 48 hours, is required for entry into the Beverly Hilton ballroom. All guests will be masked and socially distanced at all times.

HFPA chief diversity officer Neil Phillips will also take the stage to detail the organisation’s efforts to be more inclusive in both its growing membership and its approach to Hollywood creatives and content.

It will be the first time since 1979 that the event has no telecast and the first since the 2008 writer’s strike without a traditional ceremony.

One way or another winners should begin to be announced after midday next Monday.

Update: HFPA confirms there will be no livestream with winners to be announced on social media.
