Both movies have seven nominations each, including Best Motion Picture (drama) and Best Supporting Actor and Actress.

However, the usually-highly-anticipated evening of showbiz and talent will not be televised this year due to controversy surrounding nominations.

So, who has been nominated and why are the awards not to be televised? This is what you need to know.

What is the Golden Globes controversy?

Earlier this year, it was disclosed that none of the 87 members of the anonymous organisation who decide the worthy nominations - the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) - were black.

Since the revelation, 100 Hollywood PR firms have come together to advise their clients not to work with the HFPA, due to their discriminatory behaviour, unprofessionalism, ethical impropriety and alleged financial corruption".

The HFPA membership and rules have been overhauled, but there is concern that several of the nominated actors will fail to attend the event, in a stand against racism and lack of representation.

The awards were originally to be televised by US network NBC, but they axed the show following the controversy.

In announcing the 2022 awards on 13 December, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s president Helen Hoehne admitted that the HFPA was “trying to be better”.

Who has been nominated? Full List

Belfast, a black and white autobiographical rendition of Kenneth Branagh’s upbringing during the Troubles in Northern Ireland, came top of the board alongside 1920s based psychodrama The Power of the Dog, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Kirsten Dunst.

Hollywood royalty was littered throughout the nominations, with Best Actress for a drama looking like the most difficult category to call.

Among those nominated are Emmy award winning actress Olivia Coleman for her role in The Lost Daughter, singer and actress Lady Gaga for House of Gucci and former Golden Globe winner Kristen Stewart for her role as Princess Diana in epic drama, Spencer.
