Netflix’s “Stranger Things” may not have won any Golden Globes this past weekend, but all parties involved have much to celebrate this week. At last night’s Critics’ Choice Awards, “Stranger Things” was nominated for both Best Drama Series and Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, with David Harbour taking home the latter award.
This is Harbour’s first major solo acting award win, having previously won ensemble cast awards for both “Stranger Things” and the 2008 film Revolutionary Road.
“Well, this is very unexpected,” Harbour began his speech, before beautifully, elegantly summing up Chief Hopper’s role in the second season of “Stranger Things.”
Genre all around had a strong presence at the Critics’ Choice Awards this year, with The Shape of Water nabbing Best Picture, Best Director, Best Score and Best Production Design. As if all that wasn’t awesome enough for us genre fans, Get Out won Best Original Screenplay and Best Sci-fi/Horror Film.
