Alexander Skarsgard (“Big Little Lies”) is going to win a Critics’ Choice Award to go with his Emmy and brand new Golden Globe, according to our latest predictions. With 21/20 odds, he is the top contender to walk away with the Best Movie/Limited Series Supporting Actor trophy at tomorrow’s ceremony.
Alfred Molina (“Feud: Bette and Joan) and “Fargo” star David Thewlis are tied in second with 3/1 odds. Trailing behind are Stanley Tucci (“Feud: Bette and Joan”), Johnny Flynn (“Genius”) and Benito Martinez (“American Crime”), all with 10/3 odds. Skarsgard took down Thewlis, Molina and Tucci at the Emmys, and Thewlis and Molina at the Golden Globes.
All three participating Experts, Peter Travers (Rolling Stone), Adnan Virk (ESPN) and myself, are going with Skarsgard. Five Gold Derby Editors, Chris Beachum, Marcus James Dixon, Paul Sheehan and Daniel Montgomery, are also banking on Skarsgard, while Rob Licuria is calling an upset for Molina.
Skarsgard would complete a projected quartet of wins for “Big Little Lies” that includes Best Limited Series and acting honors for Nicole Kidman and Laura Dern. The HBO series took home the same four awards at the Emmys and the Globes.
