The awards season has started and Golden Globes will be the first ceremony honoring some of the biggest names from the world of movies and Television. 2021 was an extraordinary year for the entertainment industry and we saw some really extraordinary projects coming our way.

However, the controversy surrounding the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) took away a huge chunk of excitement from the award ceremony.  After the broadcast of the 2021 Golden Globes, the organization received a lot of backlash from every section of society for the lack of diversity and Black representation among its members. As a result, some of the biggest production houses, artists, and broadcasters decided to distance themselves and forced HFPA to announce that there will be some changes in its membership criteria over the next 18 months. Nevertheless, people were still very excited for the nominations to be announced and wanted to see their favorite stars getting nominated for their stupendous work.
