Golden Globes 2019 predictions: Who will win and who should win?

Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

Should Win: The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
American Crime Story may soon prove to be the most successful Ryan Murphy show when it comes to awards recognition. After a firecracker of a season that was The People v OJ Simpson, the series returned with an altogether different, darker, and pulpier take with The Assassination of Gianni Versace. Although it’s competing against the also excellent Sharp Objects, a slow-burning Gillian Flynn adaptation, The Assassination of Gianni Versace is simply too ambitious for the HFPA to resist.



Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television

Should Win: Darren Criss, The Assassination of Gianni Versace

American Crime Story is all about the show-stopping performances. When it came to The People v OJ Simpson, there wasn’t a clear scene-stealer, although Sarah “I am begging your from my soul” Paulson was the one to pick up a Golden Globe for it. This time around, however, it’s all about Darren Criss. The former Glee star is nothing short of revelatory as serial killer Andrew Cunanan, a sociopath that we revile but whose story we can’t resist investing in, as the show traces back to the origins of his murder spree.

Another promising factor is that the series dominates every category in television this year. And, yeah, it also doesn’t hurt that Jean-Marc Vallée is involved, whose Big Little Lies ran away with nearly every award last year. Still, nobody puts Ryan Murphy in the corner, so don’t count out Versace … but don’t bet on it, either. –Michael Roffman

10. The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story (FX)

The Assassination of Gianni Versace is a case of needing to see the forest in spite of the trees. Once you get past the unconventional structure which reverse chronologically follows Versace murderer Andrew Cunanan in lieu of fleshing out its title subject, the season eschews typical true crime trappings and becomes a visceral, almost smothering examination of homophobia buttressed by sumptuous direction and a towering and layered performance from Emmy winner Darren Criss. Its stylish, almost operatic extravagance and deep sense of empathy help the sometimes bloated episode times, while the prioritizing of character-focused episodes and the “why” over the “how” produces many a narrative gut punch. Versace still believes that Cunanan was a monster for what he did to the iconic fashion designer, as well as everything that led up to the events of that fateful day in July 1997, but it spends nine episodes showing you that not all monsters are born that way. Sometimes they’re created by those around them.

LIMITED SERIES/TV MOVIE

Will win: “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” (FX)

Should win: “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” (FX)

Don’t count out: “A Very English Scandal” (Amazon)

Ryan Murphy’s true crime anthology series is back in the running for the second time, and after taking the trophy for its “The People v. O.J. Simpson” installment in 2017, it is poised to see another win. The Emmy wins and star turn for Darren Criss certainly helped boost its profile — as did more recent headlines from Criss who said this would be his last gay role. Murphy may have mastered the format, but Amazon’s three-part limited series based on former Parliament leader Jeremy Thorpe’s real-life sex scandal left the audience wanting more and may prove to be tough competition, too.

Will win: Hugh Grant (“A Very English Scandal”)

Should win: Hugh Grant (“A Very English Scandal”)

Don’t count out: Darren Criss (“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”)

Hugh Grant took on real-life politician Jeremy Thorpe for his first small screen role and proved a maturity in doing so. Normally nominated for rom-coms on the film side of the ballot, spending more time (three episodes) with a more serious side of him made him a shoo-in for recognition once again. However, Criss’ own star turn as the infamous Andrew Cunanan earned him an Emmy and caused the audience to empathize, even if not fully sympathize, with a spree killer.

Ryan Murphy is prolific. He has now been nominated five times and won once at the Golden Globes. He has two shows nominated this year: Pose in the competitive Drama category, and The Assassination of Gianni Versace in the slightly less competitive Limited Series category. Voters will probably give a win to Versace, which already has plenty of awards show momentum thanks to an all-star cast and an Emmy-winning turn from Darren Criss.

Will it be a night of historic firsts at Golden Globes?

January 03, 2019

LOS ANGELES—Will it be a night of historic firsts at the 76th Golden Globe Awards?

If Darren Criss wins best actor-limited series or TV movie for his portrayal of Andrew Cunanan in “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,” he will be the first Filipino-American to win a Golden Globe Award.

Darren is the first Fil-Am to be nominated in this category of the Golden Globes, which honors excellence in both film and television, to be handed out on Sunday (Monday morning, Manila time) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.

Darren is up against Antonio Banderas (“Genius: Picasso”), Daniel Brühl (“The Alienist”), Benedict Cumberbatch (“Patrick Melrose”) and Hugh Grant (“A Very English Scandal”).

Lou Diamond Phillips has the honor of being the first Fil-Am to earn a Globe nod. He garnered the best supporting actor nomination for “Stand and Deliver” in 1989.

Last September, Darren already made history when he became the first Fil-Am to win a lead actor Emmy trophy.

Darren Criss Roles Before Glee & American Crime Story | IMDb NO SMALL PARTS

Actor and musician Darren Criss is perhaps best known for playing two very different characters in television: Blaine Anderson in Glee (2010-2015) and spree killer Andrew Cunanan in American Crime Story (2018). Take a look back at his career and what lead him to this year’s Golden Globe nomination.








This is touching.

HFPA in Conversation: Ryan Murphy, Golden Globe Veteran

As a child, Ryan Murphy already dreamed of a career in Hollywood.  After a short stint in TV visionary, who has been breaking boundaries since the late 90s.  In the last 20 years, he has created, produced and directed shows like Nip/Tuck, The New Normal, Glee, Scream Queens, Feud, American Horror Story – that launched a season-long anthology format eight years ago -, 9-1-1, Pose and American Crime Story. | 2 January 2019

This might be the easiest category of the night. Hugh Grant does a great job playing against type for “A Very English Scandal,” but he’s outshined by Ben Whishaw, who could surprise with a supporting win. We don’t think “The Alienist” really garnered enough attention for Daniel Bruhl to stand out above his more well-known counterparts, while Benedict Cumberbatch and Antonio Banderas are the “famous” nominations (though both were transformative performances). Still, this one should be a slam-dunk for Darren Criss, who embodied serial killer Andrew Cunanan with a sinister, tragic and deranged humanity we could not take our eyes off of. Already an Emmy winner, we expect follow-up gold.

“The Alienist” (TNT)
“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” (FX) - EMMY
“Escape at Dannemora” (Showtime)
“Sharp Objects” (HBO)
“A Very English Scandal” (Amazon)

Honestly, this category seems like a foregone conclusion. “Sharp Objects” was a boutique piece that fell flat in execution, “The Alienist” didn’t quite rise to the occasion, while “Escape at Dannemora” flew very under the radar. “A Very English Scandal” was compelling and got some amazing performances from its cast, so it could be a contender here, and especially with the HFPA voting. But it’s still hard to picture anything more deserving than “The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” which was absolutely must-see TV from start to finish.

I'm a bit late because the last episode has been aired a few weeks ago but Cody Fern was one of the main actors in the last season of AHS. Actually, the season was centered on his character, a bit in the same way ACS Versace was centered on Andrew C. And I found him really credible as the big villain. 

Jon Jon Briones' role was similar to the one he had on ACS, in terms of screentime and personnality of the character. I found him credible too.

However, Poppy, I wouldn't recommand the season for you. Cody's character eats hearts and make heads explode (literally, not a figure of speech!).

Thanks for your comments, Jeremy!   Yes, I read that both Cody and Jon Jon were on the last season of AHS--so happy that Ryan is continuing to use their talents.  I hope both of them stay in "the Ryan Murphy family" and that they are in other future projects of Ryan's!  :fingers crossed   How great that Cody took a lead role (I read that he did a fantastic job!) and how wonderful that Jon Jon also was part of the show!  

I also ran across photos and gifs of Cody in AHS scenes and saw his character eating some bloody organs (I quickly tried to look away!). haha.  Yes, I completely agree with you Jeremy, I wouldn't recommend me watching either!   scared

I'm having internet connection issues with Darren Criss Army and acsversace-news, and also Darren-fan tumblr sites.   I'll try back later.

Golden Globes tomorrow!  I'm not gonna get too intense about this--but it would be nice to see Darren take home a Golden Globe (icing on the cake, like I said to Jeremy).

Spoiler:

Congrats to Darren for winning a Golden Globe!  woooooo hoooo!  Yea! :very happy celebrate   Well-deserved!  Such impressive competition--can you believe it!  I thought his speech was great.  His sincere thanks to Ryan.  His thanks to Mia for her support.  And his statement about the importance of representation,  and his statement about his and his mom's Filipino heritage, and dedicating his award to his mom!  Aw!  Well done, Darren!

Assassination of Gianni Versace producer calls for empathy in Golden Globes speech

January 6, 2019

The Assassination of Gianni Versace won the trophy for Best Limited Series or TV Movie at the 76th Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Sunday, four months after it won the Emmy in the same category — and much like executive producer Ryan Murphy’s speech then, Murphy’s fellow EP Brad Simpson used the bulk of his acceptance speech to remind the audience of how prevalent intolerance as depicted in the series continues to be, despite Versace being a period piece.

“Gianni Versace was murdered 21 years ago,” Simpson said while accepting the award. “He was one of the few public figures who was out during a time of intense hate and fear.… Those forces of hate and fear are still with us. They tell us we should be scared of people who are different than us. They tell us that we should put walls around us.

“As human beings we should resist in the streets, resist at the ballot box, and practice empathy in our everyday lives,” he continued. “Those forces are not historical. They’re here, they’re with us, and we must resist.

mrrpmurphy: More backstage happiness at the GG’s. Darren and I went on such a long and rewarding journey with VERSACE. He waited for two years and then threw himself into the part with such abandon. I loved what he said in his acceptance speech about his parents and his heritage. Proud to be with him as he keeps making these amazing victory laps. And on GG night, we both separately seemed to get the memo that embroidered and appliqued tuxedos were the way to go.

Golden Globes 2019: A night of firsts


January 9, 2019

Beverly Hills — It was a night of firsts at the recently held 76th Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton.

Darren Criss, 31, who bagged the Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for portraying serial killer Andrew Cunanan in Ryan Murphy’s “The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” became the first Filipino-American to win a Golden Globe in this category.

Everybody was moved when Darren thanked his mom: “As we’ve seen, this has been a marvelous year for representation in Hollywood, and I am so enormously proud to be a teeny tiny part of that as the son of a firecracker Filipina woman from Cebu who dreamed of coming to this country and getting to be invited to cool parties like this. So, mom, I know you’re watching this. You are hugely responsible for most of the good things in my life. I love you dearly. I dedicate this to you.”

LA Times predicts Darren will win the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award for "Male Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series."   Tough competition again.  This time, there also is Sir Anthony Hopkins!
LA Times wrote:
SAG Awards predictions: A 'Black Panther' cast win will shift the Oscar best picture race

MALE ACTOR IN A TELEVISION MOVIE OR LIMITED SERIES

The nominees: Antonio Banderas, “Genius: Picasso”; Darren Criss, “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”; Hugh Grant, “A Very English Scandal”; Anthony Hopkins, “King Lear”; Bill Pullman, “The Sinner”

And the winner is: Probably Emmy-winner Criss, both for the work and the simple fact that it is easily the most-seen performance.

I liked  his speech.  The end part made me laugh.  :amused   Wow, he is acquiring quite a collection of awards.  Let's see how the SAG Awards go.  If he is fortunate enough to win the SAG Award, I would love for him to thank Ryan one last time for this amazing opportunity, and to express how Tom Rob Smith's beautiful writing and the amazing talent of his wonderful cast members brought to life the important story of how hate that was directed at the LGBTQ community caused so much destruction and caused so many divisions in our country.  I know time for acceptance speeches is so short, but I would love to hear him recognize by name some of his brilliant co-stars (Edgar, Penelope, Ricky, Cody, Finn, Judith, Mike Farrell, Jon Jon, Joanna Adler, and Max Greenfield).

Darren Criss, Rachel Brosnahan on a roll after winning Emmys, Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards

January 16, 2019

Just about everyone in Hollywood knows how hard it is to win an award. Winning three [awards] for one performance is another thing altogether. That’s what Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) and Darren Criss (“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”) just experienced after adding a Critics’ Choice Award to their respective mantles last weekend, following victories at the Emmys and Golden Globes.

Unlike with film awards, we don’t often see full sweeps on the TV side. Only five actors have pulled off a total sweep of the major TV prizes (Emmy, Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice Award, Screen Actors Guild Award and Television Critics’ Association Award): Bryan Cranston for “Breaking Bad,” Claire Danes for “Homeland,” Tina Fey for “30 Rock,” Julianna Margulies for “The Good Wife” and Sarah Paulson for “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” For Brosnahan and Criss to win three major awards within four months of each other is a huge accomplishment, speaking to how their performances have connected with critics and the industry alike.

[ . . . ]

Brosnahan and Criss are also up for Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 27, where they clearly have a strong chance of extending their winning streaks. Criss won’t be able to sweep all five television awards considering he already lost the TCA Award last year, and “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” is a limited series so he wouldn’t have the opportunity to win it for a future season.

OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE BY A FEMALE ACTOR IN A TELEVISION MOVIE OR MINISERIES

Penélope Cruz, “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”

Entrances don’t get more fabulous than the one Cruz’s Donatella Versace makes in this show’s first episode. Clad in black, emerging from a private jet, and projecting an icy grimness that feels distinctly Italian, the legendary designer strolls into the aftermath of her brother’s assassination and Cruz proceeds to steal the show. The actor proved again why she’s an icon on camera—is it too much to hope she comes back to TV?

OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE BY A MALE ACTOR IN A TELEVISION MOVIE OR MINISERIES


Darren Criss, “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”

Together with creator Ryan Murphy, the Emmy-winning Criss
created one of the most complex, compelling gay characters ever on TV in the second outing of “American Crime Story.” This season zeroed in not on Versace, but on his killer, Andrew Cunanan: a sociopathic monster, yes, but one born of an internalized homophobia that we, as an audience watching his intricate devolution, are tempted to blame on the world around him.

‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story’ Is Now on Netflix

Jan. 18, 2019

Netflix has just landed one of the most critically praised dramas of last year. The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, Ryan Murphy’s ode to the notorious fashion designer who was murdered far too soon, is now streaming.

[ . . . ]

. . . The series aptly side-steps any simple characterizations or cheap plot twists when it comes to this layered story. Every moment, from when Andrew Cunanan first pulls the trigger on the legendary Gianni Versace (Edgar Ramírez), to nine episodes later when he turns the gun on himself, is treated with solemnity. Under Murphy and his executive production team of Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Brad Falchuk, Scott Alexander, and Larry Karaszewski, the series somberly depicts the poisons of systematic homophobia. The true horror and sorrow of this series don’t have anything to do with its unhinged killer. It comes from the fact that Andrew Cunanan and the crimes he committed were entirely stoppable, yet no one was paying attention to the community that needed help the most.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace
is indisputably one of the most powerful, emotional, and gorgeous projects Murphy and his team have ever produced. And since it’s already won 20 awards to date including seven Emmys and two Golden Globes, it’s a series that absolutely needs to be your weekend binge. Throw it on and get ready for Finn Wittrock to break your heart.

Why 2018 Felt Like the Closing of a Chapter for Ryan Murphy

January 17, 2019

2018 was, by all measures, a huge year for TV producer Ryan Murphy. Creatively, he reached some of his peaks, with American Crime Story‘s season on the death of Gianni Versace producing some of the best, most affecting work of his TV career; with Pose breaking all kinds of ground for trans representation on TV, and with a most unlikely hit in 9-1-1 on FOX. But it was behind the scenes where Murphy made his biggest headlines. In February, Murphy inked a five-year deal with Netflix that was reportedly worth upwards of $300 million, the priciest deal in TV history. The deal enhanced Netflix’s reputation — with Murphy and Shonda Rhimes in their stable, Netflix has essentially locked up the two most influential TV creators of the current era — while also setting Murphy’s reputation at the very top of the mountain.

Murphy’s Netflix era hasn’t begun to bear fruit yet — though he’s announced projects The Politician (starring Brad Pitt and co-created with his Glee cohorts Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan) and Ratched (a villain-centric remake of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest) — but what we did get were three Murphy-produced seasons on FX last year that, when seen as a whole, served as a perfect swan song to the years he’s spent with the network, starting with Nip/Tuck premiered in 2003. Starting with The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, continuing with Pose over the summer, and concluding with the 8th season of American Horror Story, subtitled “Apocalypse,” this trio of shows might have been the perfect way for Murphy to go out with a bang.

With The Assassination of Gianni Versace, Murphy may well have reached his creative peak. This limited series had almost everything Murphy’s work has been circling around all this time: an obsession with fame and glamour, stomach-turning violence, and a surprising resonance about the role that anti-gay prejudice plays (and played) in America. With a structure (so often Murphy’s bugaboo) provided by screenwriter Tom Rob Smith, Versace was able to move back in time from Andrew Cunanan killing Versace through a parallel examination of their lives and how a society steeped in institutional homophobia set them both on a collision course towards each other.

Versace alone could have been Murphy’s mic-drop at FX, leaving on the highest of high notes (Versace went on to win Emmy and Golden Globe Awards). But in June came one of his most daring shows to date. Pose looked back to the lives and experiences of the queer — and mostly queer people of color — community in New York City in the mid-’80s, and in particular the house balls that influenced everybody from RuPaul to Madonna. In producing the series, and using his clout to make sure that the cast would include queer and trans performers, Murphy used his fame and fortune in order to better his community and the greater LGBTQ+ community. And in co-producing the series with creator Steven Canals, Murphy put some power into the hands of a talent who needed a boost, putting the reins of this newly buzzy show in the hands of the man who pitched it to him in the first place.

But that sense of completion for Ryan Murphy wasn’t truly present until American Horror Story aired its 8th season and, in a surprise twist, it turned into a continuation of season 3’s wildly popular “Coven” storyline. Even better, Murphy wrote in an episode-long revisiting of season 1’s “Murder House” (complete with Jessica Lange reprising her Emmy-winning role as Constance Langdon). Apocalypse was a wild and crazy gift to the fans who were there for Murder House and Coven, back when American Horror Story was a daring cable-TV experiment, not a television institution. Not only did the season have a reunion vibe, but the greater storyline was about the actual end of the world. There were themes on themes, just waiting for Murphy to announce that he was stepping away from his FX projects.

Except … he didn’t. Because he’s not. Not yet, anyway. The Netflix series are beginning production, but we’re also in for at least two more American Horror Story seasons, and Pose is gearing up for their second season as well. And thus far, Ryan Murphy has shown no interest in leaving either show (nor the currently-dormant-but-could-revive-at-any-time American Crime Story and Feud series). Does this mean Murphy is setting himself up to be spread incredibly thin between two platforms and at least five shows? Or is he just the most productive television professional working today? It’s important to note that Murphy has never worked alone. He partnered with Falchuk and Brennan on Glee, with Falchuk and Tim Minear on American Horror Story, with Falchuk and Canals on Pose, and with Minear again on 9-1-1. American Crime Story has been a co-production with Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson, with each season featuring its own head writers (Tom Rob Smith on Versace; Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski on O.J. Simpson). If any TV empire is situated to stay standing after its top dog walks away, it’s Murphy’s.

Either way, the future for Ryan Murphy is Netflix, not FX. And if you’re looking for a year that put a fitting capper on his FX past, it was 2018.

Reviews
The Daily Beast wrote:A hypnotizing, wordless first act, backed by a rousing string-heavy score, gives a Shakespearean start to the whole endeavor, echoed, of course, in the horror of the murder by gunshot that left Versace bleeding to death at the front gate of his home in 1997. - The Daily Beast

https://www.thedailybeast.com/versace-american-crime-story-will-actually-be-about-being-gay-in-the-90s
TV Guide wrote:Murphy delights in showing monsters up close, as he does in American Horror Story, but he’s most poignant when he probes how real-life monsters became that way. The Assassination of Gianni Versace allows Murphy to do what he does best: make viewers understand — but not empathize — with the devil. And only Murphy could achieve the delicate balance of vilifying a person without vilifying an entire culture — exactly what kept the case from having the same kind of cultural impact that O.J. had. That long overdue impact can now finally occur in Murphy’s dramatic retelling. - TV Guide

Garage wrote:Ryan Murphy’s latest season of his pop procedural anthology, American Crime Story, covers the 1997 shooting of Versace in nine fifty-minute episodes; and yet so un-boring is the pilot that we see the murder seven minutes in. The twinky killer, Andrew Cunanan, is a fantasist played with a cold and twitchily unreal demeanor by the android-perfect Darren Criss. Introduced as an unreliable narrator, then a Ripley-esque savant at social climbing, he creates two big impressions: one in a scene that shows him covering his mouth in a pantomime of horror when he’s really smiling, and another that’s a bona fide showcase for his ass. He’s closeted around his straight friends, gay around his gay friends, and completely unashamed to say out loud that his objective is to “tell people whatever they need to hear”—a primo marker for a sociopath.  - Garage

Yahoo wrote:“The Man Who Would Be Vogue” was quite simply one of the best first-episodes of a show I’ve seen in a while. Relying on sweeping visuals over dialogue, and allowing gaudiness to exist beside sincerity, it gripped me right away. While we know this is not a happy story and it doesn’t end particularly well, it does feel as important and timely as ever, much like its predecessor The People v. O.J. Simpson. It remains to be seen whether this season will catch on with viewers and critics like that one did, but either way it’s hard not to be grateful for something this special. - Yahoo

The performers of The Assassination of Gianni Versace are all acting at the top of their game. Just like how The People v. O.J. showed us actors and actresses in a new and interesting light, Assassination captures the spirit of Versace’s loving sister and business partner, Donatella, through a strong performance by Penelope Cruz. Musician Ricky Martin acted in Argentinian television programs at the start of his career, and his appearance in Assassination is enough to make you think he never left the craft. Darren Criss is versatile in his intense portrayal of serial killer Andrew Cunanan. The first episode shifts between a couple of different moments in time, and Criss’ Cunanan is sometimes enigmatic, sometimes detestable, and always engaging. In one moment he shares with Ramirez’ Versace, I could have sworn he was channeling Christian Bale’s portrayal of Patrick Bateman in American Psycho. And that’s one of the major things that sets Assassination apart from O.J.: it’s clear that Assassination will be spending much more time inside of the suspect’s head. In O.J. there were so many fascinating characters and so many unusual things going on that we often only viewed Cuba Gooding Jr.’s O.J. from other characters’ perspectives. Trust me: Assassination is not lacking in fascinating characters, but it does seem to be taking much more time to dwell on the actions of Cunanan than O.J. ever did with, well, O.J.  - Horror News Network

Den of Geek wrote:Penelope Cruz, who is apparently a friend of Donatella’s and has her blessing, has a tall order to serve. First, the voice. Anyone who knows anything about Donatella Versace knows that her distinct looks comes with an equally distinct accent. Cruz has to play it believably, without dipping into caricature or being so true to life that the audience can’t understand her. Second, she finds herself playing the day to day villain for much of this. She’s the one who dislikes the boyfriend that we’ve all fallen in love with after the cops are so rude to him. She’s the one who cancels the IPO. She’s the one with a sizeable reputation preceding her. And yet, Cruz’s Donatella comes across as powerful, stricken, at a lost, and completely unwilling to lose an inch of her brother’s legacy. - Den of Geek

Vulture wrote:Seriously, though, this first episode of Versace is absolutely gorgeous. Just think about all of the lush images that pop out of the screen like an IMAX version of a Vogue issue. There’s the elegant pool of the opera singer’s sequin dress as she belts on stage. There’s Gianni Versace (Edgar Ramírez), delicately sipping his espresso from a black gilded cup, shot from above so his breakfast table is just off center of the Medusa logo that he made famous. There’s the hollow chime of crystal champagne flutes clinking together on the set at the opera. There’s Gianni’s sister Donatella (Penélope Cruz), with that famous platinum hair and doorknocker of a nose standing at the top of a little portico. And let us not forget that perfect peach emoji of an ass as Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss) strides into his roommate’s husband’s closet to steal a suit. - Vulture

Telegraph UK wrote:Season two, by contrast, packs a gilded punch. The first episode bounces between the slaying of Versace to his first encounter, in a San Fransisco gay club, with Cunanan. The future killer is a Walter Mitty-like social climber whose life is wallpapered with so many habitual lies it’s unclear whether even he knows truth from fiction. Preppy of manner and soulless of gaze, he gives Murphy something the Simpson case lacked – an unambiguous villain scary even when he isn’t shooting dead international fashion designers.  - Telegraph UK

Decider wrote:But there’s pain in Andrew, too. Recall how he screams into the ocean water during his pre-slaying swim, how he vomits into a public toilet as he works up the nerve to pull the trigger. When he bullshits his way into Versace’s presence and winds up attending the opera for which he’s the costume designer, the music moves him to tears. After the show, he clearly wants to believe all the kind, supportive things Gianni is saying about him as they hang out on stage together. (And there’s every reason to believe Gianni means every word, him being such a mensch.) Andrew sucks people in with lies and sucks life out of his resulting proximity to wealth, glamour, sex, and power to fill a hole in his heart, yes, but his heart really does exist. He’s a vacuum, not a void. It’s a subtle distinction, but so far it seems to be a crucial one.  - Decider

Paste Magazine wrote:It is, rather, a bold, ambitious, riveting wrestling match between cultural shame and communal pride, in which glittering wedding gowns and glossy magazines, club hits and tank tops, are emblems for which we choose the meaning, just as we might choose to adopt as our own that unutterable word, that unforgivable commonplace, that useful descriptor—that reclamation. As the designer says of the “Versace bride,” preparing for a fashion show, “She won’t be dainty. She won’t be timid. She will be proud and strong.” I realize now, upon finishing what may be Murphy’s riskiest and most radiant gambit to date, that as I grow older, and more comfortable in my own skin, I’m not only able to hear the sentiment, but also to identify with it.  - Paste Magazine (warning for slurs)

I'm so glad to hear Ryan wishes to continue to work with Jon Jon!  So happy for Jon Jon!  What a great opportunity!  I'm also happy for Finn Wittrock!  I wonder if Darren and Cody later will be announced as connected to Ratched?

Sarah Paulson talks about Jon Jon Briones in Ryan Murphy's next project 'Ratched'

January 21, 2019

After the euphoria that happened after the Golden Globe win of Darren Criss, we have another piece of good new: Filipino actor Jon Jon Briones, who played Modesto Cunanan, (the father of Andrew Cunanan in “The Assassination of Gianni Versace”) is now lined up to do another Ryan Murphy potential goldmine, “Ratched.”

After Ryan Murphy’s multi-awarded TV mini series, “The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” he is now in pre-production for “Ratched,” a prequel to the film “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (1975). Jon Jon is set to play Dr. Richard Hanover.

Beginning in 1947, it follows Nurse Ratched’s journey and evolution from nurse to full-fledged monster (portrayed by Sarah Paulson) and track her murderous progression through the mental health care system.

Ordered straight to series, Netflix has two seasons with a total of 18 episodes lined up for "Ratched." Created by Evan Romansky, the drama is produced by Ryan, Michael Douglas, and Sarah Paulson among others.

Joining Sarah and Jon Jon, are Sharon Stone, Cynthia Nixon, Finn Wittrock, Charlie Carver, Judy Davis, Harriet Sansom Harris, Hunter Parrish, Amanda Plummer, Corey Stoll.

Ryan announced the line up on his Instagram post, adding “Ratched on Netflix starts shooting in a couple of weeks. On behalf of myself and Ms. Sarah Catherine Paulson who plays the title role and is also a big fancy producer on it, we are thrilled to announce our amazing cast…a true murderers’ row of talent. So many of these actors are supremely talented folks who Sarah and I have both longed to work with…More to come, but come on…Sarah, Cynthia, Judy, Amanda and Sharon, all doing scenes together? I cannot WAIT.”

We were lucky to get to talk to Sarah in New York about “Ratched”, Ryan Murphy and working with Jon Jon.

Below are excerpts of our conversation with her:

On working with Jon Jon Briones: 

I shot “American Horror Story” last year with Jon Jon Briones, which was a real highlight. He’s an extraordinary actor. I thought he was so incredible in “Versace” and, obviously, Ryan did too, that’s why he has wanted to work with him again and again.

We start shooting "Ratched," I believe, on February 6th. I don’t have a schedule so I don’t know when I will be reunited with him but I think he’s a real find. Ryan has such a wonderful (knack) for those kinds of things, he just finds somebody really special who has been working in the theater and in the New York stage and television for many years, but tapped him and now we have him in our wonderful fold of actors. I feel very lucky.

I have the feeling it would have already been announced if they were part of the cast, although I also feel Darren hides something related to Ryan and Netflix.

I thought the same, Jeremy, that if Darren and Cody were connected to Ratched, that they would have been announced already.  (And I agree Darren is very secretive about future projects, including projects with Ryan and/or maybe Netflix!)  Darren also seems to like to wait for announcements about his future projects.  I'm wondering if he's waiting until the awards season is over, so that the focus will continue to be on ACS Versace?  But who knows? confused   And when will we find out what Darren's next project will be since Ryan's instagram photo/message hinted he (Ryan) has something planned for Darren, Finn and Cody??   waiting
