Despite all it’s critical acclaim and strong viewing figures we never really expected Mr Robot, which airs on the USA Network, to take out the prize for for Best Television Series, Drama at the 2016 Golden Globes.
This year the competition was particularly strong too, nominations included Outlander, Narcos, Empire and Game of Thrones. Outlander, the lavish Starz drama based on the best selling Diana Gabaldon was considered by many to be firm favourite to take out the award. Game of Thrones fans will be feeling particularly hard done by too, it’s getting to be a case of always the bridesmaid, never the bride for the HBO drama. It’s been nominated three times now but has yet to take out the victory.
Kudos to Mr Robot though, the scifi drama which channels into all our hacking fears and features a great central performance from Rami Malek.
