There are two types of people in the world: those who got thrilled when they saw Bodyguard pop up during Thursday's Golden Globe nominations and those who said, "WTF is Bodyguard?"
The twisty thriller scored two nominations: Best TV Drama and Best Actor in a TV Drama for star Richard Madden, who you probably know as OG King in the North Robb Stark. Since his time on Game of Thrones, Madden's career has meandered a bit but he never really managed to break through in anything (shoutout to Cinderella), but in Bodyguard Madden finally found a vehicle worthy of his talents — talents that most of us didn't even know he had, to be perfectly honest.
Madden - Stars - Police - Sergeant - David
Madden stars as Police Sergeant David Budd, a veteran suffering from PTSD who is assigned as the personal protection officer for Home Secretary Julia Montague (Keeley Hawes). Julia's controversial politics go against everything David believes in, and as a terrorist plot unfolds throughout the fast-paced series, you're left unclear whether or not David has played a part in it until the very end.
The BBC series, which aired as a Netflix original in the States, is a thrilling addiction. And with only six, hour-long episodes, it makes for a perfect holiday binge ahead of the Globes. We do recommend watching before the ceremony airs in January because the Globes absolutely loves new shows, maybe because they get easily distracted by shiny, new things or maybe it's because they genuinely appreciate awarding fresh ideas and up-and-coming talent.
