KATE Winslet will lead the British charge at the controversy-stricken Golden Globes 2022.
The Oscar winner, 46, was handed a Best Actress nomination yesterday for her role in crime series Mare Of Easttown.

And she goes up against fellow English actress Cynthia Erivo, 34, who has been put forward for Genius: Aretha.
Another Brit Academy-award winner Olivia Colman, 47, is up for the same award in the drama film category for her part in The Lost Daughter.
The trio are just three among a host of home-grown talents chasing one of the coveted prizes at the ceremony in Los Angeles on January 9 — an event that will not be televised due to a diversity row.
Benedict Cumberbatch, 45, got a Best Actor drama film nomination for The Power Of The Dog, which in total is up for seven awards — as is the British film Belfast.
Sir Kenneth Branagh, 61, could walk away with three gongs as Belfast is not only in for Best Motion Picture but he has been put forward for Best Screenplay and Best Director.
Irish actors Jamie Dornan, 39, and Ciaran Hinds, 68, are nominated as Best Supporting Actors for their roles in the film about Kenneth’s life.
The British also dominate in the TV categories — with Scot Brian Cox, 75, being nominated for a Best Actor prize for the drama series Succession.
Olivia has strong competition in her category as she goes up against singer Lady Gaga, 35, for her part in House Of Gucci and Kristen Stewart, 31, who was given the nod for her role as Princess Diana in Spencer.
Benedict will face off against some of Hollywood’s biggest names — including Denzel Washington, 66, for The Tragedy Of Macbeth and Will Smith, 53, for King Richard.
But the glitzy LA awards ceremony seems certain not to be broadcast live for the first time in its history.
NBC pulled out after it was revealed not one of 87 members of the organisers — the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — was black.
Some 100 leading PR firms said they would advise their star clients to steer clear. Golden Globes president Helen Hoehne claims the panel has been made more diverse.
