Golden Globes 2022: Winners (10 January)
With the Golden Globes’ reputation failing in recent years due to the questionable practices of its controlling organization, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the awards show was less involved this year than ever before. With no celebrities in attendance to present or collect awards, the show was neither televised or live-streamed, instead with the winners announced via social media.
The year’s biggest winners were The Power of the Dog and West Side Story, both winning three of the biggest awards.
The Power of the Dog won Best Director for Jane Campion, Best Picture (Drama), and Best Supporting Actor (Any Film) for Kodi Smit-McPhee.
West Side Story won Best Picture (Musical/Comedy), Best Actress (Musical/Comedy) for Rachel Zegler, and Best Supporting Actress (Any Film) for Ariana DeBose.
Among the other winners were:
Best Actor (Drama) – Will Smith (King Richard)
Best Actress (Drama) – Nicole Kidman (Being the Ricardos)
Best Actor (Musical/Comedy) – Andrew Garfield (Tick, Tick… Boom!)
Best Animated Movie – Encanto
Best Screenplay – Belfast
Best Motion Picture (Non-English Language) – Drive My Car
Best Original Score – Hans Zimmer (Dune)

Final Destination 6 In The Works Produced By Spider-Man’s Jon Watts (11 January)
The popular horror franchise Final Destination is returning, with the MCU’s Jon Watts attached to produce the sixth film in the franchise. After his work on Spider-Man: Homecoming, Far From Home, and No Way Home, Watts’ move into the horror genre is an interesting one, but his expertise in reviving franchises will surely be put to good use.
The last entry into the Final Destination franchise came in the form of 2011’s Final Destination 5, which – despite taking $157 million at the box office – received mixed reviews.
Red Notice 2 & 3 Are Officially Happening (12 January)
Netflix is officially moving forward with Red Notice‘s planned sequels, and stars Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot are all expected to return.
Despite mixed-to-negative reviews, Red Notice was a huge hit for Netflix last year, quickly becoming the platform’s most-watched film.
Reports suggest that Rawson Marshall Thurber, Red Notice‘s writer/director/producer and long-time collaborator of Dwayne Johnson, is currently penning the scripts for the two sequels, which are expected to be filmed back to back some time in 2023.
As Red Notice‘s ending sets up a direct sequel set in Paris, it’s likely that Red Notice 2 will see the trio attempt to infiltrate the Louvre.
