Well, receive a Golden Globe nomination he now has thanks to his chilling performance in the Netflix series Monster: A Jeffrey Dahmer Story. The nominations for the Golden Globes 2023 have now been revealed in full, with Peters receiving the nod for Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series, Anthology Series, or a Motion Picture Made for Television.

Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story Tells the Horrific Story of the Infamous Serial Killer & Has Been a Huge Hit for Netflix

Netflix

Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story chronicles the story of one of America’s most notorious serial killers, largely told from the point of view of Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims, and dives deeply into the police incompetence and apathy that allowed the Wisconsin native to go on a multi-year killing spree. The series dramatizes at least ten instances where Dahmer was almost apprehended but ultimately let go. The series also is expected to touch on white privilege, as Dahmer, a clean-cut, good-looking white guy, was repeatedly given a free pass by cops as well as by judges who were lenient when he had been charged with petty crimes.

The series was created by American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy alongside his frequent collaborator Ian Brennan, and stars Evan Peters as Jeffrey Dahmer, Richard Jenkins and Penelope Ann Miller as Lionel Dahmer and Penelope Ann Miller as Joyce Dahmer, Jeffrey’s parents, with Molly Ringwald and Michael Learned co-starring as his stepmother and grandmother. Niecy Nash, Shaun J. Brown, and Colin Ford round out the rest of the cast.

Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story landed on Netflix in September and, despite several controversies surrounding the series, has been a huge hit, passing 1 billion views in 60 days. Monster has been renewed as an anthology series, with two further seasons now in development.
