'Stranger Things' Star Joe Keery's Hair Won the First Week of Awards Shows
Steve "Hair"-ington gets all the hair awards. (Sadly, Emma Roberts does not.)
The 2018 film and TV awards season is officially in full swing. Last weekend was the Golden Globe Awards. Thursday night was the Critics Choice Awards. Next Sunday is the Screen Actors Guild Awards. And in the week after that, we get the Oscar nominations, with that broadcast airing on March 4.
The young "Stranger Things" cast pretty much owned the Golden Globes red carpet, and that was without the help of their 20-something costars. On that front, Joe Keery (Steve Harrington) gave great hair at the Golden Globes after-parties, showing us what we missed in the pre-show.
Keery, Natalia Dyer (Nancy Wheeler), and Dacre Montgomery (Billy Hargrove) presented together at the Critics Choice Awards. They all brought their A-games to the red carpet:
David Harbour (Chief Jim Hopper) is the one who actually won a Critics Choice Award for his role in Season 2. He seemed to have fun behind-the-scenes with his cast.Joe Keery's popularity skyrocketed after "Stranger Things" Season 2, and he talked to Bustle about the increase in attention. He also revealed how he'd prefer to interact with fans. Here's that part of his Bustle profile:
Not one for taking dozens of photos for photos' sake (just look at his artsy Instagram feed, which he only updates a few times a month), Keery longs for a time when fans were actually trying to, well, just chat. "I think about Frank Sinatra — sure, he took some photos, but if he's just walking by in public or something, or like eating at a restaurant, there wouldn't be people trying to take a photo. It would be people trying to meet you."
"I would much rather sit down and like talk to someone and be like, 'No, I don't really want to take a photo because I just got off a plane,'" he adds. "I would much rather say, 'What's your name? And where [are] you from?' and talk to somebody."
The "Stranger Things" cast may not have much time left to talk to fans. They will gather Sunday, January 21 at the Screen Actors Guild Awards to defend their title; they won the big Best Ensemble in a Drama Series award last year and they're nominated again this year.
David Harbour recently said Season 3 may start filming in March or April, for a 2019 premiere on Netflix, but there are no solid dates yet.
