It’s time to do your best Chief Hopper dance because David Harbour was nominated for his first Golden Globe.
The actor received a Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Limited Series, or a Motion Picture made for Television for his role as Chief Jim Hopper in the second season of the Netflix series Stranger Things. The series itself also secured a Best Drama Series nod.
David Harbour, who continually gushes about Stranger Things and his costars, posted the most heartwarming message to Twitter, thanking everyone from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) — the governing body of the Globes — to his Stranger Things family.
Naturally, Harbour is hoping his new Golden Globe nomination ensures Chief Hopper survives the third season of the hit series.
He quipped, “Does this mean I won’t die in season 3? Guys, seriously, cmon people, tell me…”
Hopper has had more than a few brushes with death during the first two seasons of the hit series — most recently being trapped in the Upside Down tunnel network and later having to fight off a pack of demodogs — so it’s no surprise that Harbour is using his nod as leverage to make it through another season of the sci-fi/horror series.
Unfortunately, it appears the Stranger Things writers are keeping things *pretty* tight-lipped. But for what it’s worth, we hope he survives the third season, too.
And we’re guessing we aren’t alone in that feeling, because Harbour’s co-stars are also beyond excited about his nom:
The Golden Globes will be hosted by Seth Meyers on January 7th.
