You might have noticed the lack of fanfare around the Golden Globes this year. The 2022 ceremony took place Sunday, Jan. 9, at 6 p.m. PT, but you couldn't watch it on network TV or Livestream. The show, once the fun awards ceremony for tipsy celebrities -- once the show that produced an evergreen highlights reel of celebrity roasts for five-time host Ricky Gervais -- went back to the drawing board.

Questions over lack of diversity, voting processes and finances saw the awards, run by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, boycotted by celebrities. This year's ceremony, which took place at the Beverly Hilton hotel, was turned into a private event.

In the movie categories, the big winner was Benedict Cumberbatch-starring The Power of the Dog, a Western that won three awards: best picture (drama), best director for Jane Campion and best-supporting actor for Kodi Smit-McPhee. Steven Spielberg's musical West Side Story had a similarly good night, winning best picture (musical or comedy), best actress in a motion picture (musical or comedy) for Rachel Zegler, and best-supporting actress in a motion picture for Ariana DeBose.

Kate Winslet 

When it came to the small screen, Succession unsurprisingly took home the best TV series (drama) and saw acting wins for Sarah Snook (best-supporting actress in a TV role) and Jeremy Strong (bes actor in a TV series, drama). Kate Winslet won the best actress in a limited series for Mare of Easttown and Jean Smart scooped up best actress in a TV series (musical or comedy) for Hacks, which also won best TV series (musical or comedy).

Andrew Garfield

Finally, Will Smith won the best actor in a motion picture (drama) for his role as Richard Williams, father of Venus and Serena, in King Richard. Nicole Kidman pipped Kristen Stewart for best actress in a motion picture (drama) for her role as Lucille Ball in Being the Ricardos. Plus Andrew Garfield scored the best actor in a motion picture (musical or comedy) win for Tick, Tick... Boom!
