Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series was awarded to Alexander Skarsgård at the 75th Golden Globes on Sunday for his role in Big Little Lies, which follows three mothers of first graders whose apparently perfect lives unravel to the point of murder.
Skarsgård beat stiff competition from fellow nominees David Harbour (Stranger Things), Alfred Molina (Feud), Christian Slater (Mr. Robot), and David Thewlis (Fargo) to take the prize, continuing a successful awards season which has already presented him with an Emmy.
Big Little Lies picked up three more awards on the night, with Best Limited Series, Best Actress for Nicole Kidman, and Best Supporting Actress for Laura Dern. HBO has ordered a second season and Skarsgård is said to be in talks to return.
Meanwhile, In the Fade by Fatih Akin (Germany) edged out Ruben Östlund’s Palme d’Or winner The Square to take the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film. However, having both been shortlisted for this year’s Oscars, a rematch looks likely when the final five nominees are revealed on 23rd January.
