Snoop Dog and HFPA president Helen Hoehne announced the nominations on 13th December 2021. The show was organized after Amazon, Netflix, Warner Media, and various other media organizations/actors boycotted it.
While everybody wanted to host the ceremony in a grand manner, HFPA disregarded this request and went on with its plan to host the ceremony without hosts, guests and revealed the winner’s list via a press release. HFPA was boycotted after the organization requested to include a diverse membership plan. So, disputes aside, let’s focus on the award winners now.
