Upon its release in September, ‘Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” reached the number-one spot on Netflix, becoming the second most-watched English-language series of all time. Nash’s nomination comes on the heels of the award show expanding its voting community adding 103 international voters.
According to the Golden Globes’ official website, voters were recruited from international industry organizations, film festivals, and journalism professionals from 62 countries around the world.
“Combined with the current membership, the total Golden Globe Awards voting body is now 52% female, 51.8% racially and ethnically diverse, with 19.6% Latinx, 12.1% Asian, 10.1% Black, and 10.1% Middle Eastern,” they wrote.

Nash can currently be seen on ABC’s crime drama series “The Rookie: Feds", a spin-off of “The Rookie”. In September the show became the network's strongest series debut since November 2020 in both the 18-49 demographic and total viewers according to Deadline.
