    Succession was the big winner at this year's Golden Globes

    The acclaimed HBO drama scooped three major gongs on Monday evening, with stars Sarah Snook and Jeremy Strong in the acting categories, while the programme also took home the coveted Best TV Series Award, 

    Their victories were announced at a private ceremony in LA, after this year's live broadcast was cancelled due to backlash over a lack of diversity in the nominations.

    Joining her in winning was her on-screen brother Jeremy, who scooped the Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series gong for his role as Kendall Roy.

    Last year NBC announced it would not broadcast this year's Golden Globe Awards, after controversy over a lack of diversity among the members in the HFPA membership. 

    At this year's event — which is usually hailed as 'the party of the year' — there was no celebrities, no live audience, and no red carpet. The whole award show reportedly took an hour and a half and afterwards there was a poolside reception.

    'I think one of the magical things about the pre-pandemic Globes when there is a house full of celebrities is not only what happens during the live broadcast but during the commercial breaks....

    'Those moments when you catch Spielberg talking to an up-and-coming TV actor. Those moments we obviously didn't have — there were no commercial breaks and there were no celebrities,' an unnamed HFPA member told the Los Angeles Times.  

    At the 79th annual Golden Globes, the HFPA said the show would focus on philanthropy. It was an initiative taken following criticism of the association for a lack of ethics and inclusion amongst members.

    'A lot of work has gone into it, and we've taken some really great strides,' one member told the publication. 'There's more work to be done. We're going to continue that work over the years. But I hope that people really see what's been done, because it's been significant.' 

    Staff members representing various non-profits supported by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were on hand to announce winners on Sunday's ceremony, with the only celebrity presence being Schwarzenegger and Curtis video appearances.

    It was revealed on Tuesday by Variety that the Globes' talent booker reached out to several publicity agencies about getting celebrity presenters, but no celebs agreed to take part.

    HFPA president Helen Hoehne, gave a speech focusing on the organisation's attempts to diversify and a focus on its philanthropy work after a controversial year which culminated in last year's televised ceremony suffering a 60% drop in viewers. 

    'Last year the Hollywood Foreign Press Association was challenged to change – and we did,' said Hoehne. 'Both internally, within the Association, as well as adding 21 members to bring fresh perspectives.

    'We are on a journey of change and we're not going to rest. We are going to be outspoken about what we're learning and challenge others to join us.'

    Kyle Bowser, senior vice-president of the NAACP Hollywood Bureau, spoke of the 'Reimagine Coalition,' a joint five-year initiative to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion across the global entertainment industry. 'Imagination is the currency that sustains and propels the entertainment industries,' he said during the ceremony.

    A series of LA Times investigations last year revealed the lack of diversity in the HFPA's voting membership. he expose reported that the 2021 voting panel did not include any Black members. 

    In response to the LA Times article, the HPFA introduced a series of new bylaws and in October 2021, appointed 21 new voters to their board and created a new board of directors.

    The organization reports that it is the largest and most diverse class of new members in its history. They report that six of the new members are Black, 10 are women, six are Latinx, five are Asian and four are Middle Eastern/North African. 

    They also announced they hoped by 2023, the ethnic-minority of membership of the HFPA will have increased by 50%.

    Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson were the stars leading calls for a Golden Globes boycott, with Scarlett saying she had faced 'sexist questions and remarks by certain HFPA members that bordered on sexual harassment.'

    She released a statement last year that read: 'As an actor promoting a film, one is expected to participate in awards season by attending press conferences as well as awards shows.

    'In the past, this has often meant facing sexist questions and remarks by certain HFPA members that bordered on sexual harassment. It is the exact reason why I, for many years, refused to participate in their conferences.'

    She continued: 'Unless there is necessary fundamental reform within the organization, I believe it is time that we take a step back from the HFPA and focus on the importance and strength of unity within our unions and the industry as a whole'.  

    This year's nominations included nine people of colour across the acting and directing categories - the same number as for the 2021 awards.

    The organization's track record of overlooking black- and minority-led films and television series at the Golden Globes has also been frequently criticized.
