This weekend, the 70th Annual Golden Globes are set to air Sunday on NBC with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
Among this year’s nominees is New Girl’s Max Greenfield, who is up for his first Golden Globe in the category of Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series, or a Motion Picture Made for Television for his portrayal as the series’ regular contributor to the “Douchebag Jar,” the hilarious and charming Schmidt.
“Well, it feels wonderful, especially in such a kind of odd category, where they have people from movies, mini-series, dramas. And all of a sudden, they’re like, ‘The nominees are Ed Harris and “Schmidt” from New Girl,'” Greenfield said about his Best Actor in a Supporting Role nomination during a recent press call. “So to hear that felt really nice.”
The actor, who had previous stints on such shows as Veronica Mars, Greek, and Ugly Betty, shared that he is looking forward to getting dressed up and celebrating on the big night.
“I like to dress up. I like to put on a spiffy outfit. So that I’m excited about. I’m excited about when the show starts to end, and you can kind of loosen up your bowtie and unbutton like the first two, and let the bowtie hang loose. That’s always a cool look. Like you’re on the cover of the movie, Diner. That’s exciting.”
He continued, “It’s going to be a great night. You get to celebrate the fact that you have a job and that you’re working; that it’s going well and that people are responding to you.”
You can catch Max Greenfield in the latest episode of New Girl, which airs Tuesday, January 8 at 9 p.m. on FOX.
The 70th Annual Golden Globes air Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC.
