The 2022 Golden Globes look very different this year, with no red carpet, no streamed ceremony and no celebrities in attendance. But the show must go on, and select members and grantees of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association are at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles where the celebration was held, with winners being announced via social media.

West Side Story was the first winner of the night, with Ariana Debose picking up Best Supporting Actress in a film, and her co-star Rachel Zegler later winning Best Actress in a Musical/Comedy; the film was nominated for four awards and it picked up three in total including Best Film - Musical/Comedy.

It was also a big night for Succession; the show was nominated for five awards but only able to win four as both Jeremy Strong and Brian Cox were nominated in Best Television Actor in a Drama.

It walked away with three, as gongs also went to Sarah Snook for Best Supporting Actress in a TV series and the showrunners picked up Best TV Series - Drama.

Jason Sudeikis picked up Best Television Actor in a Musical/Comedy Series category for Ted Lasso while Hacks picked up awards for Best TV Series - Comedy, and Best Television Actress in a Musical/Comedy for its star Jean Smart.

Kate Winslet won her fifth Golden Globe - and second in the TV categories - for her work in Mare of Eastown, and MJ Rodriguez became the first trans actress to win a Golden Globe when she picked up Best Television Actress in a Drama for Pose.

Kenneth Branagh’s autobiographical drama Belfast, starring Jamie Dornan and Caitriona Balfe, led the nominations with seven along with Jane Campion’s tense western The Power of the Dog with Benedict Cumberbatch.

However Belfast only picked up one award for Best Screenplay - Film for Kenneth, while Jane's Netflix film scooped three including the major Best Director and Best Film - Drama awards.
