Omar Sy, Marion Cotillard and Tahar Rahim among 2022 Golden Globes nominees

Three French actors are among those nominated for the 2022 Golden Globes, announced on Monday. This will be the first edition since the controversy surrounding the lack of diversity within the jury.

France will be well represented at the next Golden Globes ceremony. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which constitutes the jury of the prizes rewarding each year the best of cinema and television, unveiled this Monday the list of nominees for its 2022 edition. Three French names appear: those of Marion Cotillard, Omar Sy and Tahar Rahim.

The first is nominated in the category “best actress in a feature film (comedy or musical) for her role in Annette by Leos Carax. She competes with Jennifer Lawrence for Don’t Look Up and Emma Stone for Cruella, especially.

Omar Sy is a candidate for Best Actor in a Drama Series thanks to his role in Lupine, the French Netflix series which is a hit abroad. He will compete for the trophy with Jeremy Strong and Brian Cox from Succession, Billy Porter of Pose and Lee Jung-Jae of the phenomenon Squid Game. Finally, Tahar Rahim could win the statuette for best actor in a miniseries for the British series The Serpent, available on Netflix. The actor was already nominated last year in the category best actor in a dramatic film, for his role in Designated guilty.

Delicate edition

The Golden Globes, which two years ago were among the most prestigious awards in American entertainment, have seen their reputation tarnished by heated controversy. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the group of around 90 journalists who make up the jury, have been at the heart of the turmoil since media revealed last February that it has no black members in her breast. The controversy was so resounding that the actress Scarlett Johansson called for a boycott and that the NBC channel, which broadcasts the ceremony each year, decided to distance itself from the 2022 vintage. This jury is also accused of corruption. In an attempt to put out the fire the Golden Globes announced rule changes last June. Here is the list of nominees in the main categories of the 79th edition, which is due to take place on January 9:
