Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Supporting Actor in a TV Series

The competition: David Harbour’s sheriff (Stranger Things), Alfred Molina’s director (Feud: Bette and Joan), Alexander Skarsgaard’s abusive husband (Big Little Lies), Christian Slater’s anarchist coder (Mr. Robot), and David Thewlis’ mysterious mobster (Fargo).

For your information: This is Slater’s third consecutive nomination, and he won this award two years ago. This is the first nomination for the other four men. Skarsgaard defeated Molina and Thewlis at the Emmy Awards last year. All programs except for “Mr. Robot” are recognized in their respective top races.

Who should win? I only saw one episode of Molina’s work, and I wasn’t a fan of Thewlis’ turn. Both Harbour and Skarsgaard are very good, but my vote goes to the dependable Slater, who was especially great as his character evolved this season.

Who will win? Given the popularity of his limited series and female costars, I think Skarsgaard is the only one with any real buzz.
