Even though Spacey has two Oscars, he has never prevailed with the Hollywood Foreign Press despite eight prior nominations. That includes the years when he won Academy Awards for his supporting performance in “The Usual Suspects” (Brad Pitt took the Globe for “Twelve Monkeys” in 1995) and his leading role in “American Beauty” (Denzel Washington won the Globe for “The Hurricane” in 1999).
Our current odds have Spacey far out front for Best TV Drama Actor at 2/5. His strongest competition: Clive Owen (“The Knick“) at 7/2 and Dominic West (“The Affair“) at 50/1. Last year’s champ, Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad“), is no longer eligible.
And as a producer on “House of Cards,” Spacey will claim a trophy if it wins Best TV Drama Series. This repeat nominee leads with 8/15 odds over “Game of Thrones” at 6/1 and “The Good Wife” at 9/1. The previous winner “Breaking Bad” has cleared the decks for a new champ this year. We know the HFPA voters like “House of Cards” very much. Robin Wright won Best TV Drama Actress last year and is defending her title this year.
At the end of the second season of the political drama, Spacey’s character of Frank Underwood continued his diabolical ascent in the power ranks by cunningly moving from Vice-President to President of the United States. The entire third season will debut on Netflix February 27.
