Golden Globes predictions: Can Sean Hayes (‘Will & Grace’) topple Alexander Skarsgard (‘Big Little Lies’)?

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. However, some of our Top 24 Users and All-Star Users are predicting that “Will & Grace” scene-stealer Sean Hayes will topple the frontrunner and take home his very first career Golden Globe. Skarsgard leads our predictions with 17/10 odds, while Hayes comes in second place with odds of 9/2. Who do YOU think will win? Give us your predictions now before the Golden Globes noms are announced December 11.

Hayes nabbed six consecutive Golden Globe bids (2000-2005) for playing over-the-top Jack McFarland during the original run of “Will & Grace,” but was bested each time. In fact, “Will & Grace” never won a single Golden Globe despite 27 nominations. Hayes made up for those snubs by winning two Emmy Awards: one for “Will & Grace” in 2000 and another for hosting the Tony Awards when it won Best Special Class Program in 2011.

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. The popular Swedish actor has been working in the industry for decades, so now could be the time that he takes home his first Golden Globe.

Besides Hayes and Skarsgard, some of the other performers in the running for Best TV Supporting Actor at the 2018 Golden Globes are Alfred Molina (“Feud: Bette and Joan”) with 15/2 odds, David Thewlis (“Fargo”) with 9/1 odds, David Harbour (“Stranger Things”) with 14/1 odds, Joseph Fiennes (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) with 28/1 odds, Tituss Burgess (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) with 40/1 odds and Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”) with 66/1 odds.
