Miami Vice (1984)

Don Johnson as "Det. James"Sonny" Crockett"

This series is largely remembered for the stylish clothes Detectives Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs wore, the soundtrack, and its distinct visuals. But beneath the veneer is a surprisingly dark cop show. The cocaine boom of the 1980s framed many stories about drugs and murder, with Crockett and Tubbs often resorting to violence in the course of their work.

Golden Globe (1987) Nominated Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series - Drama
Golden Globe (1986) Won Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series - Drama
Emmy (Primetime) (1985) Nominated Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series
