The Golden Globe Awards, whose nominations were just announced, are an excellent indicator of which actors are currently among the most popular. The event, which will take place on Jan. 7, 2018 at the Beverly Hills Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, is the first major awards event of the season and the Golden Globe nominations are often regarded as a precursor to the prestigious Academy Awards. The Golden Globe Awards ceremony is a chance for audiences to see which performances and which actors will dominate the awards season.
One difference between the Academy Awards and Golden Globes is that the latter recognizes work in both film and television. These days, many actors work in both mediums, and TV shows can carry the same distinction as film. The Golden Globe Awards highlights a range of talent at the height of their craft – in both mediums.
24/7 Wall St. has created an index based on several metrics – including each actor’s IMDb ranking, internet popularity, and appeal of their work – in order to determine which of this year’s nominated actors are the most popular among the fans.
