Billy Porter Reacts to His Best Actor Golden Globe Nomination

Billy Porter Reacts to His Best Actor Golden Globe Nomination

Few performances delighted and moved us in 2018 like Billy Porter’s turn on FX’s groundbreaking series Pose. Whether he was reading the children for their disastrous looks or losing his lover at the height of the AIDS crisis, Porter’s Pray Tell was one of the standouts on a show full of dynamic characters, and clearly we weren’t the only ones who noticed. On Thursday, Porter was nominated for Best Performance by an Actor In A Television Series – Drama, for the 2019 Golden Globes — something we saw coming, as we named Porter the Performance of the Year in the OUT100. Pose was also nominated Best Television Series, Drama, two huge wins for Hollywood’s burgeoning renaissance of queer stories.
