Ever since its debut, 'The Power of the Dog' has certainly made its mark.  Based on the 1967 novel of the same name by Thomas Savage, the western psychological drama film is written and directed by Jane Campion and has a rather impressive cast --  Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, and Kodi Smit-McPhee. So it comes as no surprise that the movie has been winning big at the Golden Globes, including Kodi Smit-McPhee bagging the award for Best Supporting Actor — Motion Picture.

The other actors nominated under this category are -- Ben Affleck for 'The Tender Bar', Jamie Dornan for 'Belfast', Ciarán Hinds for 'Belfast' and Troy Kotsur for 'CODA'.
