This is Boyd Crowder's second nomination and second straight win for best supporting character in an action series.  Here to discuss what makes Boyd such a great character is Poolie voter, CJ.

A character with many layers and the perfect foil for Raylan, Boyd is the criminal you can’t help but respect and even admire. Boyd’s evolution as a character has been an enjoyable one, from a reckless killer to a calculated figure trying to live his own life. Possibly at his best this season having to deal with Quarles and Limehouse while still figuring out how to exact his revenge on Dickie. Boyd defends what he cares about, what he considers his; Ava, Harlan County and in some cases his “best friend” Raylan. A man with a code who anyone should want on their side, Boyd Crowder is a character so key to the Justified storyline, it’s hard to imagine the show if he had been killed off as originally intended.

  1. thank god for Boyd. gus fring was a great character, but was he that likeable? the answer is no. if you can't name a great line or moment from a character, he has no business winning an award. he is in the same category as Carrie from Homeland. great acting performance, yes. but likeable character, no.
