Golden Globes TV predictions: David Harbour (‘Stranger Things’) could upset Alexander Skarsgard as Best Supporting Actor

According to Gold Derby’s exclusive predictions, Alexander Skarsgard is the frontrunner to win the Golden Globe as Best TV Supporting Actor for HBO’s limited series “Big Little Lies.” While he has leading 2/9 odds, seven of our Top 24 Users and two of our All Star Users warn that “Stranger Things” star David Harbour (8/1 odds) could upset the frontrunner. As these are the first Golden Globe nominations for both actors, which one do YOU think will be a first-time winner?

Harbour plays police chief Jim Hopper on Netflix’s sci-fi drama, a character who had even more screen time and impact in Season 2. While the Globes snubbed him for the first season of the show, Harbour did earn an Emmy nomination and was part of the show’s cast victory at the SAG Awards. In fact, Harbour’s memorable SAG speech was so powerful that it made our list of the best 2017 awards moments. Might Globe voters want to reward Harbour in order to get their own viral on-stage moment?

Earlier this year Skarsgard won an Emmy for his supporting role of domestic abuser Perry Wright on HBO’s red-hot program. His on-screen wife Nicole Kidman also prevailed at the Emmys as Best Movie/Mini Actress, as did co-star Laura Dern for Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actress. However, Globes voters don’t always copy their Emmy counterparts. 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.

As for the other Best TV Supporting Actor nominees, David Thewlis (“Fargo”) comes in third place with 28/1 odds, Alfred Molina (“Feud: Bette and Joan”) is in fourth place with 401/ odds, and Christian Slater (“Mr. Robot”) is in last place with 66/1 odds.. See more Golden Globes odds and rankings.
