2022 Golden Globe nominations: ‘Squid Game’ leads in API representation, with ‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ and ‘Drive My Car’ close behind

Nominations for the 2022 Golden Globes were announced on Dec. 13, with API actors and creators garnering nods in several categories. 

The animated Disney adventure “Raya and the Last Dragon,” written by Adele Lim and Qui Nguyen, received a nomination for Best Motion Picture (Animated), while Japanese drama “Drive My Car,” directed by Ryūsuke Hamaguchi, garnered one for Best Motion Picture (Non-English Language).

Most notable of the pack is Netflix’s record-breaking series “Squid Game,” which earned three nominations: Best Television Series (Drama), Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series (Drama) for Lee Jung-jae as Seong Gi-hun and Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Supporting Role for O Yeong-su as Oh Il-nam. Although the “Squid Game” squad is up against some tough competition, going head-to-head with HBO’s tour de force “Succession” in each of the three categories, being nominated still marks an exciting turn for API creators worldwide. 

The Golden Globe Awards won’t air on TV this year, but the award winners will be announced Jan. 9.
