7 Things We Won’t Forget About This Week

New year, same pandemic! Closing out the first week of the year 2022—though it feels like an extension of 2021 with the loss of Sidney Poitier—there is still so much to look forward to. As announcements of new shows, books, goals, ventures, and babies, rolled in, you might have been too distracted to catch it all. So, here’s a few things you might have missed this week.

Earlier in 2021, NBC released a statement that the 2022 Golden Globes would not air after backlash of many snubs from critically-acclaimed Black productions like HBO’s Lovecraft Country and Judas and the Black Messiah. With hopes of reform, the network’s statement said “Assuming the organization executes on its plan, we are hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023.”
