Although the 2022 Golden Globe Awards was not televised or live-streamed on Sunday, members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and some of the night's big winners gathered to participate in the 79th annual awards show.
Before the event at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, the show had been plagued with controversy.

After the article, many Hollywood elites demanded reform, which the HFPA unveiled in October, including new codes and bylaws.
