Not sure why Sam wasn't recognized by the golden globes. He's always delivers as Jaimie.

I think he's excellent in Outlander, but not award worthy since his rape in S1, which he can no longer win an award for now.

I disagree. I think he did some of his best work in season 3. In the first episode alone, he hardly had any lines, but conveyed so much with his face and his breath! Or what about the episode at Helwater? Just the look on his face when he left Willie broke my heart! For most of the first half of the season, he played Jamie as a shadow of himself, taking on various disguises and identities (Dunbonnet, Mac Dubh, Mac, Alex, A Malcolm) because he can't face being himself without Claire. When Claire returns he has to return to himself and reconcile it with the various other identities that he's had over the years.

Actually, I think he did some amazing work in the reunion. Watch the clip where he hears Claire's voice. He's facing away from the camera and we see his head perk up as soon as he hears her. He tenses up as she says "It's me, Claire" and turns around very slowly. He looks up at her with suspicion, like he's pretty sure it's a dream or a hallucination, and then the complete naked shock when he sees her. Then right into his graceful faint.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=linAZA1mKhU Again he had no lines, but he proves that he's such a physical actor that he doesn't need them. When we see the scene from Jamie's angle we see a certain alertness come into his eyes as soon as she says "It isn't Geordie." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDpSyofwlug He seems to almost choke on her name the first time he says it. We get the sense of awkwardness of the meeting when he starts to take his pants off in front of a woman that he hasn't seen in 20 years, but also still sensing the intimacy they once had.

He brings that kind of care and attention to all his scenes on the show, which is what makes Jamie work as a character. And if Jamie doesn't work then the show doesn't work because we need a sense of why Claire is so invested in him. But a lot of that is subtle work, and not as showy as a lot of the nominated performances. I also think that some awards bodies see Jamie as a stereotypical romantic hero and don't think that's worthy of recognition. I disagree, Jamie's a much more complex character than he seems at first glance. But I think that's why he doesn't get nominated.

Agree to disagree, I guess. I never said he was a bad actor, just no where near on par with Caitriona since S1.

Fair enough. I think he's easily on par with Caitriona but isn't always called on to do work that's as "showy". I don't mean that as a dig to Caitriona at all- she's really talented and I like her a lot- just that they're called on to do different things in their roles.

I don’t think Caitriona won her award for sex scenes.

I don't either! I think she's a very talented actress. I think that she gives a great performance which is why she's won awards. By "showy" I meant that she often has intense emotional scenes that allow her to show off her full range as an actress in them. Sam's part doesn't allow for that as much, so he's often overlooked awards-wise. That's all I meant!

My Peak Challenge 2018 is doing preregistration now, and it starts on February 5th. It's a great program that gives you support and encouragement to achieve your goals and raises money for charity at the same time. Win-win! Check it out:


Also, just after filming the first season of Outlander, Sam did an indie film called When The Starlight Ends. It's mostly appeared in film festivals since then, but it'll be available on Amazon as of March 13 (It's available for pre-order now)
