The 2022 Golden Globe Awards was hosted at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on Sunday night. The show, on the other hand, was not broadcast and no one showed up. Because of COVID-19, the event was cancelled, according to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).

NBC declared that the awards presentation will no longer be televised due to many concerns, both for ethics and safety. The winners were ultimately announced in a non-televised ceremony. Michaela Jaé “Mj” Rodriguez, 31, won a Golden Globe for best actress in a TV drama for her portrayal as Blanca, the housemother and nurse on FX’s “Pose.”

A transgender actor has won a Golden Globe for the first time in history. This is also “Pose’s” first Golden Globe win, as the film debuted in 2018. Rodriguez made history when she became the first transgender actor to be nominated for a lead acting Emmy last summer. Rodriguez did not end up winning that award.

While “Pose” has been praised for having the largest transgender ensemble in a scripted series, the show’s stars have been vocal about the show’s lack of award recognition. Indya Moore and Angelica Ross, co-stars on “Pose,” came out against the Emmys in 2020 for disregarding the show’s Black transgender cast on its list of nominees.

Angelica Ross, who portrayed Candy Ferocity, a Black trans woman on the show, retweeted Moore and spoke honestly about the snubs on Instagram at the time. Rodriguez took to social media on Sunday to celebrate her victory. Rodriguez also gave shout outs to her fellow nominees Uzo Aduba, Jennifer Aniston, Christine Baranski and Elisabeth Moss.
