Fans were enraged when the nomination list for the Golden Globes 2023 came out, since they hoped that the critically acclaimed show Stranger Things will get a seat on the table this time. The Netflix series has been recognized as one of the most iconic creations watched widely around the globe. Unfortunately, even this huge popularity didn’t work and the supernatural drama failed to secure any nominations at this prestigious ceremony. It was certainly disappointing for the fandom, who constantly follows this nostalgic depiction of 80s pop culture. However, this time there is good news for fans as their favorite ones are finally getting recognition for their work at Critics Choice Super Awards.
And Millie Bobby Brown is out of the frame if you are wondering who is leading nominations this time. Can you guess who beats the young superstar for such a huge honor?

Jamie Campbell Bower is the most authentic incarnation of Vecna
There are several cast members of Stranger Things who gave remarkable performances in season 4. This includes the 34-year-old star who transformed himself into a gnarly villain attacking the fragile minds of human beings. Viewers discovered that Vecna was the sorcerer behind all the supernatural attacks that took place in the last seasons.
From vocals to make-up, the American actor put a lot of effort into embodying this bad guy in the show. In his interview with Hollywood Reporters, he revealed how the whole latex costume and makeup took about 12 hours daily. Did you know that this fearsome creature did not only terrify the viewers onscreen, but also his co-stars on the set? Millie Bobby Brown was terrified when she saw Bower in the Vecna costume.
