HBO’s highly acclaimed television series, The Last of Us, had a disappointing night at The Golden Globes. Despite receiving three nominations, the show failed to secure any awards, losing out to Succession in all of its categories. The snub left fans and critics alike surprised and questioning the outcome.
Succession emerged as the big winner of the night, taking home the prestigious award for best drama TV series. Kieran Culkin and Sarah Snook from the show were also recognized for their outstanding performances, beating out Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey from The Last of Us. The Hollywood Reporter even reported a playful interaction between Culkin and Pascal on social media, further highlighting the triumph of Succession.
While not successful at The Golden Globes, The Last of Us found success at the Creative Arts Emmys. The show, based on the popular PlayStation video game franchise, secured eight awards. Notable wins included Nick Offerman for outstanding guest actor in a drama series and Storm Reid for outstanding guest actress in a drama series. These victories showcase the talent and recognition that The Last of Us has gained within the television industry.
Amidst the disappointment of The Last of Us’ loss at The Golden Globes, there is potential for excitement among fans. Actor Nick Offerman, who portrayed Bill in the series, revealed that a prequel series focused on the characters of Bill and Frank has been pitched to HBO. The concept of delving into their lives before they met each other opens up new storytelling possibilities, potentially even exploring the medium of a musical.
Additionally, fans can look forward to The Last of Us: Season 2, set to release in 2025. Production is scheduled to begin early this year, and one of the most prominent additions to the cast will be Abby, a major character from the game The Last of Us: Part II. Although the actress for the role has been selected, an official announcement is still pending. This news offers a glimmer of hope for fans eagerly waiting for the continuation of the series.
