Pedro Pascal Reaction at Golden Globes Goes Viral. THE LAST OF US Lost Out to SUCCESSION

Suck it Pedro . . . it’s mine — Succession’s Kieran Culkin to The Last of Us’s Pedro Pascal at the Golden Globes.

The Last of Us, starring Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey, lost out to Succession in the major categories at the Golden Globes. Succession won Best Drama Series, Kieran Culkin won Best Actor in a Drama Series and Sarah Snook took Best Actress in a Drama Series.

Update: Pedro Pascal’s shoulder injury is not expected to delay The Last of Us season 2’s February start of production in British Columbia.

The Last of Us takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed by a fungal pandemic. Joel (Pedro Pascal), a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle 14-year-old Ellie (Bella Ramsey) out of an oppressive quarantine zone.

What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey as they both must traverse across the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.
