Superb results at the Golden Globes this week!  Congratulations to Michael C Hall and John Lithgow for winning their awards. They did an excellent job this season, making it a strong candidate for the best Dexter season ever.

Michael C Hall had been nominated before but never won. I’m really glad he’s got the global recognition now. His portrayal of Dexter has been consistently good for four years; a perfect portrayal of someone with a very dark secret, trying to be normal and blend in. Sometimes it’s subtle – an expression he pulls when he feels awkward in a situation and he’s unsure how to react – and sometimes it’s in your face when his dark passenger is unleashed and he gets someone on his table.

I think of this Golden Globe as just reward for 4 years of hard work by Hall and it was made all the sweeter, and his acceptance speech all the more emotional, by the fact that he had only just announced his successful battle against Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The effects of the chemotherapy meant he was wearing a hat at the ceremony. However the cancer is reported to be in remission and he’s expected to commence filming of season 5 later in the year. Good news for all concerned!

As for Lithgow, his chilling performance as Trinity really made this last season and forced Hall to raise his own game.  Their scenes together were always compelling and very well acted.

The disastrous Thanksgiving dinner scene at the Mitchells’ was one of the most dramatic and exciting I’ve seen in a tv show and it’s credit to the tremendous performances by Hall and Lithgow, although kudos to the writers too!  The scene must now surely be on both actors’ show reels! They both did a superb job and thoroughly deserve these awards.

I talk more about Dexter on episode 2 of my podcast, Gareth’s Waste of Time, which you can download from iTunes or grab it from my blog, Gareth’s Waste of Time, where I talk about films and tv.  If you fancy, follow me on twitter, Gareth_UK
