Check out these podcast interviews with 2022 Golden Globe nominees like Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, and more
It’s about to be Moira Rose’s favorite season: awards season. While NBC announced it would not air this year’s Golden Globes ceremony due to financial and ethical lapses by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, they still decided to release their nominees.
In all of the controversy, people are unsure if these nominations and awards will have the same standing, as Hollywood distances itself from the group that has had no Black voters in past years. But, it seems that Snoop Dogg was one of the few celebrities who would pick up the HFPA’s call, as he announced the nominees earlier this week.
Regardless, the nominations are out, marking the start of awards season, and the list of nominees is not totally unexpected. Check out these podcast interviews with actors and directors of these nominated films. We’ve got Lady Gaga, West Side Story‘s Rachel Zegler, Andrew Garfield, Hans Zimmer, and many more on these Golden Globes podcasts!

Kermode and Mayo’s Film Review
Lin-Manuel Miranda’s directorial debut, “Tick, Tick… Boom!,” has been garnering rave reviews from critics and fans.
