According to Gold Derby’s combined odds, the race for Best TV Supporting Actor at the 2018 Golden Globes will end with Alexander Skarsgard (“Big Little Lies”) standing at the winner’s podium. All of our industry experts and website editors, plus 22 of our Top 24 users, are predicting that the Swedish actor will take home his first Golden Globe after decades working in the industry. Do you agree with our prognosticators that Skarsgard will prevail at the Globes? Sound off down in the comments section.
Earlier this year Skarsgard won an Emmy for his supporting role of domestic abuser Perry Wright on HBO’s red-hot limited series. His on-screen wife Nicole Kidman also prevailed at the Emmy Awards as Best Movie/Mini Actress, as did co-star Laura Dern for Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actress. Overall, “Big Little Lies” won eight Emmys including Best Limited Series and Best Director for Jean-Marc Vallee.
While “Big Little Lies” is Skarsgard’s most respected project so far, he’s given a vast number of performances over the years that have earned him an international fan base. He played Eric Northman on “True Blood” (2008-2014), Sgt. Brad “Iceman” Colbert on “Generation Kill” (2008), Commander Stone Hopper on “Battleship” (2012) and John Clayton/Tarzan on “Tarzan” (2016), to name just a few of his other notable roles.
Besides Skarsgard, some of the other performers in the running for Best TV Supporting Actor at the 2018 Golden Globes are Sean Hayes (“Will and Grace”), David Thewlis (“Fargo”), Alfred Molina (“Feud: Bette and Joan”), Kit Harington (“Game of Thrones”), David Harbour (“Stranger Things”), Tituss Burgess (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) and Idris Elba (“Guerrilla”).
