Best: Oscar Isaac Wins for 'Show Me a Hero'
Isaac is having one hell of a year, between starring in the critically acclaimed sci-fi thriller Ex Machina, becoming an Internet-meme heartthrob and playing the lead in David Simon's critically acclaimed miniseries Show Me a Hero. (Oh, and sure, there's the fact that he stars in a little movie called Star Wars.) Isaac picked up his first Golden Globe for the series, a drama about a public housing battle in Yonkers in the late eighties/early nineties, in which he gave what has been compared to a "young-Pacino level performance." His acceptance speech, meanwhile, was charming, concise, and punctuated by a clearly excited "Yeah!" over the much deserved win.
