‘Stranger Things’ Star Joe Keery Vows to Shave His Head If David Harbour Wins Golden Globe

‘Stranger Things’ Star Joe Keery Vows to Shave His Head If David Harbour Wins Golden Globe
Do you want David Harbour to win a Golden Globe or do you want Joe Keery to keep his gorgeous mane of hair? Because you can’t have both, apparently. Harbour (who plays police chief Jim Hopper in “Stranger Things”) took to Instagram on Monday after being nominated for a Globe for Best Supporting Actor to share how grateful he was for the nod. Keery was among the many who chimed in via the comments section. But his remark kinda stole Harbour’s thunder, as the actor (who plays hunk Steve in the Netflix series) made a vow that devastated fans.

The answer is yes, and the details are actually quite shocking.

Critic's Notebook: SAG Award TV Nominations Bask in 'Glow,' 'Big Little Lies'

Because they come on the cusp of the Oscar season, Golden Globe and SAG Awards movie nominations and results are generally assumed to be predictive every year.

The respective Globe and SAG Award TV nominations, though, come at the midway point in the Emmy calendar and are followed by five-plus months of TV without any major awards, so sometimes they're predictive and sometimes they're reactive.

Last December, for example, they were predictive. Stranger Things, The Crown, Westworld and, to a lesser degree, This Is Us all came into the winter as unproved awards commodities and earned their first awards recognition,...

SAG Nominations: 16 Biggest Snubs and Surprises

SAG Nominations: 16 Biggest Snubs and Surprises
This year’s Oscar race is still as undecided as a swing state voter. On Wednesday, the Screen Actors Guild nominations failed to offer much clarity. Fox Searchlight’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” led with four nominations, more than any other film. However, other sure bets — such as “Shape of Water,” “Dunkirk,” and “The Post” — were left out of the best SAG ensemble category, usually a predicator of things to come at the Academy Awards.

On the TV side, the SAG Awards has a spotty track record when it comes to recognizing new shows. Last year, the group embraced “Stranger Things” (and did so again). This year, it also bestowed plenty of love to “Glow” and “Ozark,” two of the buzziest shows from Netflix. But in doing so, it snubbed critically acclaimed new offerings like Amazon’s “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” as well as Showtime’s “Smilf” — both of which picked up multiple Golden Globe nominations.
