You'd probably think, at this point, that Alexander Skarsgard would be an acceptance speech pro. He's been around Hollywood for long enough, right? Well, while accepting the award for best supporting actor in a limited series at the Golden Globes on Sunday night for his role in Big Little Lies, the 41-year-old actor revealed that he'd actually made a huge error while accepting his Emmy a few months earlier.
Apparently, one special person in his life was mad he didn't get a shout-out: Ossian Skarsgard, his 8-year-old little brother! Fortunately, Ossian can now brag about the fact his older brother dedicated a Golden Globe to him. Not too shabby!
The Swedish actor hails from a pretty big family. Not only is he the son of Good Will Hunting movie star Stellan Skarsgard, but he's also the older brother to seven siblings: Gustaf, Sam, Bill, Eija, Valter, and two half-brothers, Ossian and Kolbjörn. He recently hit the red carpet with his brothers and fellow actors Gustaf and Bill Skarsgard, but only time will tell if Ossian has caught the acting bug, too!
