“Small Axe” made a big influence when it premiered final fall, uniting movie and tv critics of their reward of the Steve McQueen anthology collection concerning the historical past of oppression towards West Indian immigrants within the UK. The Los Angeles Film Critics Association even awarded it Greatest Image. But it surely competes as a TV restricted collection on the Golden Globes, and now it’s the front-runner to win Greatest TV Supporting Actor for John Boyega.
Earlier than nominations have been introduced, Boyega ranked fourth in our predictions with 6/1 odds based mostly on the mixed forecasts of Gold Derby customers, with none of our Specialists predicting him to win. Lots of our customers and prime journos may need been hedging their bets about his candidacy since he’d by no means been nominated for a Globe earlier than and the TV supporting classes at these awards are prohibitively crowded, combining comedies, dramas, films and restricted collection with solely 5 nomination slots out there. The toughest half for anybody on this class is simply getting the nomination.
However Boyega did earn a nom, and “Small Axe” can be up for Greatest TV Film/Restricted Sequence. Now that he has leapt over that hurdle, he may need a transparent path to victory. He’s at the moment out front with 7/2 odds, now with 5 Experts predicting him to win, in addition to a lot of the Editors who cowl awards year-round for Gold Derby (extra Specialists will chime in as we get nearer to the Globes ceremony on February 28).
It’s a better race for those who ask our Top 24 Users who bought the very best scores predicting final yr’s Globe winners: 9 of them say Boyega will prevail, however 10 are betting on Dan Levy (“Schitt’s Creek”), who just lately received 4 Emmys for his work on the present as a author, director, actor and producer. And the race is a useless warmth in response to our All-Star Top 24 who bought the very best prediction scores if you mix the outcomes from the final couple of years: 9 of them say Boyega, and 9 say Levy.
However Boyega might have a bonus of really enjoying a lead position in “Small Axe.” He will get a giant dramatic showcase within the episode “Purple, White and Blue” as a younger man making an attempt to enter the police power regardless of the disapproval of his father and the blatant racism of his white colleagues. He’s working as a supporting actor right here as a result of he doesn’t seem in any of the opposite 4 episodes of the anthology collection.
He may additionally be helped by the truth that he’s the one “Small Axe” actor nominated, so if Globe voters are passionate sufficient concerning the collection he’s the one possibility to present it an performing award (and if “Small Axe” wins the highest prize, voters typically prefer to pair a finest collection award with an performing award). Levy, in the meantime, is certainly one of 4 “Schitt’s Creek” actors in rivalry. As a co-creator of the present, voters might deal with him by awarding it Greatest Comedy Sequence, and in the event that they need to pair that up with an performing prize they might go together with leads Eugene Levy or Catherine O’Hara, or supporting actress Annie Murphy.
