Fargo (2014)

Lorne Malvo is a manipulative man who meets small-town insurance salesman Lester Nygaard and changes his life forever, largely by convincing Lester to get involved in the search for a killer. Leading the search is police Deputy Gus Grimly, a single father who must choose between his own safety and his police duties when the investigation comes to a head. The series is based on the 1996 Coen brothers film of the same name and features the same trademark humor and "Minnesota nice" that made the feature film popular.

Golden Globe (2015) Nominated Best Performance by an Actor in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television
Emmy (Primetime) (2014) Nominated Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie
