    "King Richard" is a 2021 biographical film directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green. Richard Williams, the father and coach of notable tennis players Venus and Serena Williams, is profiled in this film.

    Will Smith, Aunjanue Ellis, Saniyya Sidney, Demi Singleton, Tony Goldwyn, and Jon Bernthal were featured in the film. The American Film Institute rated it as one of the greatest films of 2021, and it received six nominations at the 27th Critics' Choice Awards (including Best Picture). The 79th Golden Globe Awards nominations were announced on December 13, 2021.

    NBC and streaming behemoths Netflix, Amazon, and Warner Media are boycotting the Golden Globe award ceremony due to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's (HFPA) failure to take steps to expand the organization's diversity membership. Instead, the HFPA is hosting a private ceremony, and the winners will be announced online.
