The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which was founded in 1943, has always hosted the annual Golden Globe Awards and the association includes multiple journalists and photographers who report on the entertainment industry. There are about 90 members from 55 countries but last year, The Los Angeles Times pointed out that the Hollywood Foreign Press Associated has no Black members and participated in questionable business practices.

Although since the scandal broke, NBC decided to pull the plug on the streaming of the award ceremony and the reason that was stated was the lack of diversity by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. NBC wrote in their statement, "We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform. However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right. As such, NBC will not air the 2022 Golden Globes."

After the scandal, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association released a statement citing that they are making the required changes; "Over the last eight months, the HFPA has completely overhauled their bylaws, implementing sweeping changes from top to bottom that address ethics and code of conduct, diversity, equity and inclusion, governance, membership and more. Recently, the HFPA admitted their largest and most diverse class to date of 21 new members, all of whom are first-time Golden Globe voters."

Snoop Dogg joined Hollywood Foreign Press Associated President Helen Hoehne while the nominations of 2022 Golden Globes were announced in December. During the presentation, she said, "We’re going to be outspoken about what we’re learning and challenge others to join us with members from more than 50 countries. We have a unique place in the awards universe."

Thus, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association decided to host the ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles and announced that the reason to take such a step is to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Their statement read, "Health and safety remain a top priority for the HFPA. There will not be an audience on January 9th, and the following precautions are being taken for select members and grantees who will be in the room: Proof of vaccination and booster shot, along with a negative PCR test within 48 hours, is required for entry; All guests will be masked and socially distanced at all times while inside the ballroom; There will be no red carpet."

Some of the celebrities including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Diana Luna, Jamie Lee Curtis, etc., although did appear virtually while according to reports, many industries figures such as production company bosses were invited to speak or present awards in person. And only a handful of winners have acknowledged their win on their social media including Ariana DeBose from West Side Story who won the award for Best Supporting Actress, tweeted, "There is still work to be done, but when you've worked so hard on a project - infused with blood, sweat, tears, and love - having the work seen and acknowledged is always going to be special. Thank you."

Rachel Zegler from West Side Story won the award for Best Movie Actress – Musical or Comedywrote, "I got cast as Maria in West Side Story on 9 January 2019. And I just won a Golden Globe for that same performance, on 9 January 2022. Life is very strange." Nicole Kidman who won the award for Best Drama Actress for her character Lucille Ball in ‘Being the Ricardos’said, "Thank you for the acknowledgment! Lucille, this is for you and all the other incredible women nominated." With this award, Nicole Kidman marks her fifth Golden Globe win.

One of the ground-breaking wins at the 2022 Golden Globes was of Michaela Jae Rodriguez from Pose who won the award for Best TV Actress – Drama Series, and becomes the first transgender actress to win the Golden Globe. She said, "OMG! Wow!... Thank you, this is going to open the door for many more talented individuals."
