The 79th annual Golden Globes took place in a closed ceremony on Sunday evening. Hosted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association the annual affair usually has one of the most highly anticipated red carpet telecasts in tinsel town but this year the Omicron variant and a string of controversies came together to shutter the party.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association opted not to live stream the occasion and instead they revealed the winners in 25 categories through their website and social media channels.
This year’s winners included impassioned dramas, heart-stirring biopics, and big budget musicals.
