The 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony just began, and we already know the victor for Best Actor in a TV Series, Drama. Our expert also predicted that Thornton was a close second, given his pedigree at the Globes in the past, plus the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's tendency to gravitate toward new shows - in this case "Goliath".
Thornton beat out Rami Malek of USA's "Mr. Robot", Bob Odenkirk of AMC's "Better Call Saul", Matthew Rhys of FX's "The Americans", and Liev Schreiber of Showtime's "Ray Donovan", who were all nominated in the best TV drama actor category.
Thornton had a bit of joshing to give to Odenkirk after he won.
"Old Bob and I have had a feud since the 1940s ... we had a little thing ever since so, there you go, bud!" "Do you remember that, Bob?" Last year, Amazon came out big with surprise wins for their Musical/Comedy series Mozart in the Jungle and its star Gael Garcia Bernal. It was created by all-star TV producer David E. Kelley (The Practice, Harry's Law), who co-wrote all eight first-season episodes with Josh Shapiro.
