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!

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.

Darren Criss says win was ‘pretty wild’ at Emmy party

September 21, 2018

“It’s pretty wild!” Darren Criss exclaimed, clutching the gold trophy he received earlier in the evening, when he arrived at the Fox Emmy party at Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles.

Looking sharp in a modern tux by Armani—no, not by Versace—Darren was beaming with pure joy.

Congratulated on making history as the first Filipino-American to win an Emmy lead actor award for his acclaimed portrayal of Andrew Cunanan in “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,” Darren said, “I feel like the title is much bigger than myself. It’s truly an honor. I’m so happy to be representing so many people who share my background and, there are some Filipino or half-Filipino kids out there who can be encouraged by this and, hopefully, we’ll see them very soon at the Emmys.”

On winning his first major acting award for a role that for the first time hewed to his Fil-Am heritage, Darren said, “I’ve always been so thrilled to be Filipino. It’s truly one of my favorite things about myself. And this is the first time in my professional life that people have been curious or asked about my background. I think that is mainly due to the fact that there haven’t been roles that utilized my background or that lined up with the background that I have.”

Above all else, I’m just happy that it was a complex role with far more than one side of him (Cunanan). It was a challenge to bring to life somebody who was complex, tragic and very sad. And to be half-Filipino and bring that to life with the ethnic background I have is a real privilege.”

At 31, the second youngest to win the Emmy best actor in a limited series or movie prize (the youngest winner was Anthony Murphy, in 1973), Darren shared what he felt when his name was called at Microsoft Theater: “I’m just so glad that I had so many cast members and colleagues from the show around me. Because this is only worth celebrating if I’m with them.

“If I had been by myself, this would have been a very empty victory. So, it’s nice to be in such a large ensemble. I was thrilled for them because this is a big win for them, as well.”

The former “Glee” star introduced us to his family when they walked in at Vibiana—mom Cerina, dad Charles and brother Chuck. He said he was blessed to grow up with this family. “As I said in my speech, unlike Andrew, I was very fortunate to be raised in an extraordinarily loving home, which is very different from the  broken home he came up in. It’s no wonder that it makes quite a difference.

“I really wanted them to be here tonight so that I could thank them, and that they know the way they brought me up is directly connected to being here.”

As for what’s next, the singer-actor-composer said, “I have a lot of loose ends I have to tie up, at least for the remainder of the year.”

[. . . ]

I have some other things, some writing I’m working on that I have to get done next.”

How ‘The Assassination Of Gianni Versace’ Still Resonates Today: Ryan Murphy, EPs & Cast At Deadline’s Emmy FYC Event


August 16, 2018

“It’s a contemporary period piece, but it feels so modern to me, the things we were grappling with then, we’re still grappling with,” said Murphy at Deadline’s Emmy FYC event at the LACMA Wednesday night.

[ . . . ]

American Crime Story at its best is something that tackles social issues and explores them, it’s not just really about a crime, it’s about something more societal at its best.” added the four-time Emmy winner of Glee, The Normal Heart and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

“It was extraordinary to have this experience and to shine a light on this older man and younger man and people from Minneapolis and Chicago, whose lives I knew nothing about who had struggled to find their existence in America despite being gay,” said Tom Rob Smith, who is Emmy-nominated in the limited series writing category, about Cunanan’s victims, former U.S. Navy officer Jeffrey Trail and 72-year-old real estate developer Lee Miglin.

[ . . . ]

Darren Criss had the bold opportunity to portray Cunanan, a role which Murphy always knew the former Glee actor had the dramatic chops to pull off.


Criss, who is nominated in the lead actor limited category, savored the role’s complexity, especially in how it illustrated the sensitive nerves and inner-workings of a broken young man:  “The story is a coming-of-age tragedy. We are looking for so many reasons to like this person, even though we have every reason not to.”

“We spoke about that, you and I,” Murphy told Criss last night, “No one is born a monster. Monsters are created. I thought that was an important part of the show.”

[ . . . ]

“I know this conversation (tonight) will make an impact for a lot of people who are struggling, who are dealing right now with the level of injustice, not just in America. But I just came back from Dubai and people were asking me what it was like to play Antonio,” said [Ricky] Martin, “And for me, Dubai, such a conservative country, that they were open to talking about this –man, Ryan– we made a difference. This is something to celebrate.”

Well, congratulations to Darren and Ryan Murphy, Tom Rob Smith, and the cast and crew of ACS Versace

Well done!  I can't say I'm surprised Darren was nominated--with the vast majority of critics loving his work on the show, but yeah, feeling so very happy for and proud of him.  So well-deserved!  I can only imagine how he must be dancing on Cloud 9 right now with Mia and friends (and family?)! 

I meant to post earlier, but it's been a busy day.  But I've been following all the wonderful updates from dcriss-archive and Darren Criss Army the whole day.  First thing I did this morning was check just to make sure our man got that nomination! 

I'm also feeling very happy for Ryan Murphy, the rest of the cast and crew, Tom Rob Smith,  and the other producers/showrunners ACS Versace.  So  happy for Ryan.  The show was a brilliant idea.  It took so much vision from Ryan to get this show done and to shine a spotlight on, to bring to light, the human cost of societal intolerance, of society's ability to shun and turn their cheek away from an entire community.  Hats off to Ryan for his vision! 

I'm sorry that Cody and Jon Jon were not nominated.  But it doesn't take away how brilliant those two actors, one a veteran actor and one a young up and coming rising star, were in the show.  Awards shows tend to play it safe and reward big names (and often reward the same shows and same folks every year).  (For this reason, I'm so relieved that Darren was nominated, since his category was teeming with giant names!)  To me, Cody's performance (and the brilliant writing for Cody's lines) were the heart of the show--he just captured the heart break of the stories of these men, and likewise, Jon Jon's performance was so remarkable in how it highlighted an Asian immigrant's experiences in America in a highly visible project by a highly visible, well-respected showrunner.  My hope is that both Jon Jon and Cody will have more opportunities in the future (and in Jon Jon's case, that he will have many opportunities to represent the Asian-American acting community in the future).

Just so happy for everyone who was part of this team!   Much love to all involved!!!  heart heart heart  My heart is teeming with pride.

Sandra Oh’s ‘Killing Eve’ Emmy Nod Isn’t the Only Important Asian Nomination to Celebrate

July 12, 2018

Oh isn’t the only significant Asian representation among the nominees though. Darren Criss, who is half Filipino, snagged a nomination for playing killer Andrew Cunanan, who in real life was also half-Filipino, in “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” on FX. This is his first individual acting Emmy nomination. He previously had a nod as a singer/songwriter on “Glee.”

Criss released the following statement on Twitter regarding his nomination: “Zorro, Dr. Strange, Harry Dunne, Todd Alquist, and Jesus Christ… pretty incredible company to keep. Humbled by your talent, Antonio Banderas, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jeff Daniels, Jesse Plemons, John Legend. I’m such a fan. Congrats! What an honor, Television Academy. Thank you so much. Truly. Wow. And a huge congrats to my fellow cast and crew of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story! Ryan Murphy does it again!”

Either win would make great strides for Asian representation, especially in the acting categories. Only two Asian actors have won previously: Riz Ahmed in 2017 for his leading role in “The Night Of” and Archie Panjabi for her supporting role in “The Good Wife” in 2010.

In addition to Darren, Ryan, Tom Rob Smith, the rest of the cast and crew and showrunners/producers of ACS Versace, I'm happy for one of my favorite shows (This is Us) and for Sterling K. Brown and Ron Cephas Jones (I'm sorry Mandy Moore wasn't nominated)!  This article didn't seem to realize Darren is part Filipino.

Fil-Am actor Darren Criss earns Emmy nomination for serial killer role

July 13, 2018


His role in the TV drama “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” as a serial killer has been a big hit with audience and critics.

Now, Filipino-American actor Darren Criss has received an acting nomination for an Emmy, perhaps the highest honor in TV, it was revealed late Thursday (Philippine time).

This is the first Emmy acting nod for Criss, whose mother is from Cebu. He was nominated in 2015 in the outstanding original music category for a song he wrote for “Glee.”

In his new show, Criss plays Andrew Cunanan, the half-Filipino murderer notorious for killing five men, including famous fashion Gianni Versace, in 1997.

It has drawn positive reviews from critics, with the New York Times’ Margaret Lyons describing his performance as “impressive and haunting” in spite of her tamed views on the show overall.

TV Guide called him “magnificent,” while USA Today praised him for bringing the spree killer to life with “disturbing energy and commitment,” just to name some of the reviews.

Darren was right on the nose when he described why he felt Ryan is so great at what he does.  Ryan colors the stories of his characters with social significance, giving his characters a voice to tell stories that haven't been told by their communities in the same way before.  At the same time, Ryan is genius at making each of his characters accessible, so that any barriers that may have existed between some audience members and the characters begin to melt away once the audience begins to relate to and bond with the characters, despite differences that some audience members may have felt before.  I know that happened with Glee, especially with how audience members who previously had no sense of community with LGBTQ people, began to really love and embrace LGBTQ characters over the course of the various seasons of Glee.   That is magic.  That is, I believe, the key to combatting prejudice and bias:  To be able to help people develop a sense of community with other human beings, regardless of their differences.

‘The Assassination Of Gianni Versace’ Stars Reflect On Emmy Nominations: TV Academy “Voted For Justice”

July 12, 2018

"How am I doing? I don’t even know how I’m doing. I’m on fire, man. What can I say?” Ricky Martin told Deadline today, after receiving his first ever Emmy nomination for Ryan Murphy’s FX series The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. Picking up their own nominations amongst the series’ 18 overall nods, Versace stars Edgar Ramírez, Darren Criss and Finn Wittrock seemed to share Martin’s sense of excited bewilderment.

Documenting the murder of the titular fashion icon (Ramírez) at the hands of spree killer Andrew Cunanan (Criss), the latest installment of Murphy’s true crime anthology series was a dream project for those involved. “It’s a difficult thing to say because obviously [Cunanan] is a very tragic figure. I’d like to think that if I was in any position to have stopped the horrible things that happened, if I was there, I would have tried to do something,” Criss explained of his thinking in portraying an infamous real-life killer. “But unfortunately I wasn’t there. So all I could do is try to bring a kind of positivity to this darkness by telling a story in a certain way, raising certain questions that we can ask 20 years later about not only him, but ourselves and our society.”

“Regardless of awards season, this is an opportunity that I have worked and waited for my entire life. Actors are really only as good as the parts they can get, and the people that believe in them, and the complexity of the characters that they’re playing,” Criss added with reference to his troubled character, who finds himself at the center of the series—more so than Versace himself. “The thing that makes Andrew interesting is not the stuff that is dark or scary or uncomfortable; it’s the breadth of colors that exists on his palette. That’s what actors really crave.”

Like Criss, Martin was happy to see some light come out of the darkness of Versace and Cunanan’s experience. “Today, I realized that my peers in The Academy voted for justice — because at the end of the day, this is what the story was about,” he said. “It’s focused on the justice that is needed [following] this horrible crime. This is the way I see it, period.”

For the actors of Versace, portraying real-life figures was a challange. “As happens every time you play a real-life person, [the challenge] is not to yield before the pressure of playing someone that a lot of people knew—especially someone like Gianni whose work was so impactful,” Ramírez said. “Playing a real-life character, it’s not about imitating. It’s not a photograph—it’s a painting.”

While Criss contemplated the psyche of a killer—attempting to manifest all of Cunanan’s complexity—Martin gave himself up to the darkness D’Amico experienced following the death of Versace. “We walked on set every day extremely vulnerable, but at the same time, we all felt protected because we were being directed by Ryan, and by an amazing group of directors,” he said. “It just felt right.”

Celebrating the success of Versace, each of the series’ stars tipped their hat to its mastermind, Ryan Murphy, discussing what makes him so unique and vital as a storyteller. “He works harder than anyone else in the business and continues to keep a group of people around him who are continually impressive. With every new project, you’re going to be challenged in a new way and surprised,” Wittrock said.

Added Criss, who also worked with Murphy on Glee, “He really gravitates towards sides of the story that we wouldn’t typically hear, or haven’t heard in the past. He finds what’s not only most accessible about those stories, but as a showrunner and a showman, he knows how to make those things attractive.”

Sandra Oh’s and Darren Criss’ Historic Emmy Noms Show the Two Ways to Diversify Casting

On Thursday, Sandra Oh became the first actress of Asian descent to garner an Emmy nomination for best lead actress in a drama while Darren Criss became the second actor of Asian descent to earn an Emmy nod for best lead actor in a limited series or TV movie. Best known for her decade on Grey’s Anatomy, Oh was honored for her critically acclaimed performance as disgraced MI5 detective Eve Polastri in BBC America’s Killing Eve. A supporting player on Glee, Criss delivered a star turn as spree killer Andrew Cunanan in FX’s American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace.

Should these actors take home the award on Sept. 17Criss is widely considered one of the front-runners in his category, whereas Oh will have to build on her momentum to prevail against five returning nominees, including 2017 winner Elisabeth Moss—they would become only the third and fourth acting Emmy winners of Asian descent, after Riz Ahmed for The Night Of in 2017 and Archie Panjabi for The Good Wife in 2010.

The serendipitous pairing of Oh’s and Criss’ roles also suggests that initiatives toward inclusiveness in Hollywood should be two-pronged: through colorblind casting when it comes to characters whose stories aren’t about their race (as was the case with Oh’s Polastri), as well as through stories specific to the Asian American experience (such as that of the half-Filipino Cunanan, who suffered racial discrimination within the gay community).

These record-breaking achievements are all the more poignant for arriving one day after news broke that a movie studio intends to make a fictionalized version of the Thai cave rescue as “a major Hollywood film with A-list stars”—a phrase that has previously served as a justification for whitewashing stories. Criss and Oh’s performances illustrate that acting talent among performers of Asian descent is out there—but won’t be given a chance to reveal itself without the opportunities necessary to create new A-listers.

Darren Criss earns lead actor Emmy nod for ‘Assassination of Gianni Versace’

July 13, 2018

Fil-Am actor Darren Criss’ heartbreaking, gut-wrenching performance as Filipino serial killer Andrew Cunanan has earned him a well-deserved Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie.

FX’s true crime dramatization, “The Assassination of Gianni Versace”, led the limited series category with 18 nominations. It will be competing against “The Alienist”, “Genius: Picasso”, “Godless”, and “Patrick Melrose” for Outstanding Limited Series.

This is Criss’ first Emmy nomination for acting. He will be up against Antonio Banderas (“Genius: Picasso”), Benedict Cumberbatch (“Patrick Melrose”), Jeff Daniels (“The Looming Tower”), John Legend (“Jesus Christ Superstar”), and Jesse Plemons (Black Mirror: USS Callister).

Criss fleshed out in the small screen the troubled mind of Cunanan, who went on a horrific murder spree that ended with the death of legendary fashion designer Gianni Versace.

Cunanan killed at least five people before taking his own life to evade arrest.

Criss earned his first-ever acting nomination for his work as the chilling serial killer Andrew Cunanan on the FX crime drama. However, he has actually been nominated for an Emmy before — for helping to pen an original song on the final season of Glee in 2015. Criss is only the second actor of Asian descent to earn a nomination in this category. The first was Riz Ahmed who made history when he won for The Night Of last year.

robertascroft: Inspired by a vintage Versace campaign I photographed the cast of American Crime Story / The Assassination of Gianni Versace. I wanted to shoot them in a way I knew no one else was going to for this show. I wanted edgy rock and roll style. Leather, Jeans , Boots which are all a staple in my own personal wardrobe. I had imagined listening to CBGB’s type music onset but instead I was pleasantly surprised by a singalong by Penelope Cruz and Darren Criss doing “Father Figure” by George Michael… it was inspired and to be honest I wouldn’t have changed that moment for anything. #acs #versace #fx #emmy #penelopecruz #darrencriss #rickymartin #edgarramirez

One of the projects that East West Players is doing this season in partnership with the Ahmanson Theatre is David Henry Hwang's Soft Power, starring Conrad Ricamora (who coincidentally sort of looks like Andrew Cunanan :amused ).

Cody Fern plays the most involving victim in 'The Assassination of Gianni Versace'

May 01, 2018

Topics tagged under fx on Darren Criss Fan Community Tumblr_p82r79IcFC1wcyxsb_r1_og_500

Cody Fern, by most measures, was the least recognizable name attached to Ryan Murphy’s “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story

The 30-year-old Australian actor had few credits to his name and prior to scooping up the role, had gone to London to work on a feature film that he was writing and directing as a means of taking control of his career.

“I really did not want to play the boy next door … it’s just not me,” Fern said when he stopped by the L.A. Times video studio this week.
Then came the audition that would put him in the company of Darren Criss, Edgar Ramirez, Penelope Cruz and Ricky Martin in a saga that explored the 1997 murder of the famed fashion designer — as well as the less-publicized murders that came before him — by serial killer Andrew Cunanan. For followers of the show, Fern would emerge with a noteworthy performance with his portrayal of little-known David Madson, Cunanan’s good friend who ultimately became one of his murder victims.

In keeping with the show’s reversed timeline narrative, viewers are introduced to Fern’s David with his harrowing last encounters with Cunanan, as explored in Episode 4, titled “House by the Lake.”

The episode opens with Madson bearing witness to the brutal murder of Jeff Trail, a friend Madson shared with Cunanan. As the episode progresses, Madson is essentially forced into fleeing the scene with Cunanan. At one point, they end up at a roadside bar and there’s a moment where Madson could try to escape from a bathroom window. But he doesn’t. And, ultimately, he ends up as Cunanan’s next victim. Much of the timeline is a theorization of events given that Madson and Cunanan did not live to tell the story.

“There is this element of stitching together what has happened in this time — that this man is murdered in [Madson’s] apartment and he’s seemingly involved in the police’s mind and then he ends up dead,” Fern said. “The core question, for me [as] David in this series, is ‘Why doesn’t he run when he smashes the window? Why doesn’t he go?’ … I will say this much: There is, throughout 'House by the Lake,’ the feeling of David looking back and assessing his life and all of the choices that he’s made, all of the hiding that he’s done, all of the repression he’s been through. … I think he’s starting to become aware of the fact that he’s spent a great deal of his life in hiding. Not being who he truly is. In that moment, David understands that even if he runs from this thing, where is he going to go?”

Seriously Darren Criss, is an actor I have seen on Broadway kill it as Hedwig a trans-woman, filled with so much passion and love. To Andrew a killer, lost in his own dream world. He is a talented man who truly takes his time to meet all his fans, honors those around him, and praises his fellow actors. His is a career I will continue to follow and one of a few actors I truly wish I get the chance to work with one day. #darrencriss #codyfern #acsversace #fx #americancrimestory #actors #dreams

ACS Versace Finale Screeinging (March 19, 2018)

This is such a sweet message from this fan.  Darren goes above and beyond showing how kind he is and how much he values the support of his fans.  (It's amazing how a person with such kind eyes, can turn his facial expression, especially his eyes, to icy cold hardness when he plays Andrew Cunanan in Versace.)
"Darren Criss I wish for you to win all the Emmys you deserve. You definitely have my vote. I admire what you just did at the FYC event. You took your time to take a photo w every single person who wanted one."

Barbra Streisand Reveals What She Really Thinks of Lady Gaga's 'A Star Is Born' Remake

March 16, 2018

Streisand had no trouble, however, judging TV shows – including Murphy’s newest American Crime Story series, The Assassination of Gianni Versace.

“I binge-watched your show last night, Gianni Versace, but it’s very scary to me. I have to go fast,” she adorably revealed. “I like the parts with Penelope Cruz and Edgar Ramirez [who play Donatella and Gianni Versace, respectively], but I don’t like [Andrew Cunanan, whom Darren Criss plays]. He’s so good that it’s so awful.”

“Oh, this poor individual. Is any of this true stuff about him?” she asked Murphy, who replied with a resounding “Yes!” as the audience chuckled.

“That poor older guy he was with!” she remarked.

“Barbra, why did you watch that?” asked Murphy. “That’s not for you!”

Hi Jeremy,

Yes, that's possible.  And I really do appreciate the first part of what he said, where he stated that because he passes as white, that he will not encounter the same obstacles that people of color will face in the entertainment industry.    I feel he's being respectful of the experiences that people of color face, that he's being respectful by recognizing that there will be unique obstacles and grief that people of color unfortunately, will have to live through, and overcome, that he--as a person who passes as white--fortunately will not. 

It was the choice of words/the phrasing of the later part of the quote that has surprised me, but I feel like I am just repeating myself, at this point. :happy face

Jon Jon Briones, Carlin James, Isa Briones, Zedrick Restauro Join Darren Criss in FX’s ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,’ March 14

March 12, 2018

Filipino American actors Jon Jon Briones, Carlin James, Isa Briones and Zedrick Restauro join fellow FilAm Darren Criss in a new episode of FX’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story this Wednesday, March 14 at 10:00pm.

Jon Jon Briones (Miss Saigon) will play Andrew’s father, ‘Modesto Cunanan’ while Carlin James (How to Get Away with Murder, This Is Us, Dear White People) will play Andrew’s brother, ‘Christopher’ and Isa Briones (who was just announced today to play ‘Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds’ in the first national tour of Hamilton) will play his sister, ‘Elena.’  They will also appear in next week’s episode on March 21.

[. . . ]

Filipinos seem to praise their own whenever anyone hits mainstream celebrity status, but they did not with Cunanan.  Many never spoke his name at the office water cooler gossip while others watched the televised manhunt, in secret.  It’s as if we all felt a great disturbance…

When it was announced that the Andrew Cunanan story will be the 2018 series focus for American Crime Story, I was hesitant to even promote it. But, it was until a colleague friend mentioned to me that the show “tells struggles of a Fil-Am family seldom seen on TV.”

She’s right.

Cunanan developed a reputation as a prolific liar given to telling fantastic tales about his family and personal life.  He was also adept at changing his appearance according to what he felt was most attractive at a given moment.  When he was 19, his father deserted his family to avoid arrest for embezzlement. That same year, his mother learned that Cunanan was gay.  During an ensuing argument, he threw her against a wall, dislocating her shoulder.  Later examination of his behavior from reports indicate that he may have suffered from antisocial personality disorder, a personality disorder characterized by an abnormal lack of empathy (earlier known as psychopathy).

I've been wondering about Cunanan's siblings.

This is such an interesting issue.  Representation matters.   Even if the Cunanan family was not healthy, I'm still very happy to see a mixed-Filipino-American family being represented on TV on a major show!   It may not seem like such a big deal to some, but for those communities who see very little representation on TV and film, it is deeply appreciated.  heart

I liked the 2nd episode too, Jeremy!

Again, the entire cast was good, and I admire the writing.

Spoiler:

--I agree, the storyline involving Ronnie was really, really interesting.  Max Greenfield did a wonderful job.  In a short time, he captured Ronnie's humanity.  I really felt for him, because of an illness which he thought would be the end of him  (I don't remember if he said he had HIV or if it was suggested by the show), but after being given the life-saving medication, now he doesn't seem to know what to do with his life, which is so tragic.  Max conveyed Ronnie's loneliness and emptiness, and showed why at the same time his suspicion of Andrew continued to grow, he also seemed grateful for Andrew's friendship.  To me, there were three great scenes involving Ronnie and Cunanan. 

The first scene was the conversation that Cunanan and Ronnie had while Cunanan was showering on the beach.  I agree with one of the critics, that the show reached just the right balance between showing  Cunanan's physical attractiveness, without distracting from the important conversation.   How good is Darren's acting where Cunanan makes up a fable of being proposed to by Versace and turning him down, then Cunanan swiftly and intensely defending Versace as his "friend" and as a great artist, when Ronnie seems lukewarm about Versace's clothing, followed by Cunanan passionately exclaiming (paraphrasing) that he sees the man (Versace) behind the clothing as a great creator, "the man I could have been."    Then another abrupt change in emotion of Cunanan, when Cunanan laughs when Ronnie makes a joke (something about could have been with Versace).

The second scene I really liked occurs when both Ronnie and Cunanan are getting high.  The result of Ronnie getting high:  He becomes silly and happy.  The result of Cunanan getting high:  He is taken over by darkness.  When Cunanan comes out of the bathroom with the duct tape on his face, Ronnie's reaction was priceless, in part horrified, in part (to the audience) comical in how taken aback Ronnie is (for good reason!).  And that great line from Ronnie--delivered perfectly by Max Greenfield, with dread and foreboding--to Cunanan (this is great writing!  I'm paraphrasing), "Andrew, what'd you do?"  Cunanan's response, "Nothing.  I've done nothing my whole life."   Wonderful acting.  Wonderful writing. 

The third scene between those two that you mentioned, Jeremy, that I loved, where they are saying their good-byes.  You sense Ronnie's anger, probably from his sense of being abandoned summarily by Cunanan, where he barks to Cunanan about where is the money (again, I'm paraphrasing) and Andrew stops in his tracks, turns, and comes marching back rapidly in that narrow hallway.  The camera turns to Ronnie's face, which shows fear, as Andrews reaches in his backpack as he approaches Ronnie.   The show suggests Cunanan could be pulling out a weapon, but he pulls out his wallet.  Was giving Ronnie money an act of kindness of Cunanan, or was Cunanan merely showing to Ronnie that Cunanan followed through and got the money he said he would?  Then that pause, and that sad question from Ronnie that follows, asking Cunanan if their friendship was real.  Was Cunanan's response an act of kindness to protect Ronnie from any involvement with Cunanan to avoid Ronnie getting tangled up with law enforcement, or simply to deny any clues to law enforcement, or both?

--The scene with the elderly client in his hotel room, was scary.  You are just waiting for the poor guy to be attacked with the scissors that Cunanan plays with in his hands as the elderly clients gasps for air and Cunanan dances around him.  When Cunanan pauses, and his face (especially his eyes) sets into a hardened expression, you are thinking, "Oh no"!!  Also, Darren is so graceful when he leaps on the bed, and hovers over the helpless elderly man; he made me think of a graceful animal attacking its prey.  (BTW did anyone notice that Darren used a dance move similar to one he used in Hedwig, and I thought, "no--don't use the Hedwig dance move!") 

--I also loved the scenes involving the Versace family.  I am in love with Edgar's Gianni Versace, so warm, and so passionate about his art, life and family.    I love the acting and the writing for the scene where Donatella asks a weak, ill Gianni, (paraphrasing), "What is Versace without you?"  Gianni:  "It will be you."  Donatella:  "What am I without you?"  Such a complex sibling relationship, competitive, with different philosophies about life and art, but so full of love and respect for each other. I really felt Donatella's grief in the scene where she lovingly dresses Gianni in the coffin.  I cried at that scene.

The conflict between Donatella and Antonio is understandable, but yet so sad.  I understand Donatella's anger against Antonio because she loves her brother so much and has to blame someone other than her brother.  But I really feel for Antonio, who loves Gianni deeply, and is attacked by Donatella. He is right.  Gianni is not a saint; Gianni is a man who he made his own choices. 

I also love the writing and the acting in that scene where Donatella and Gianni are arguing about models and  clothing.  The language was so beautiful.  I loved it.  All I remember now is Gianni saying near the end of the dialogue, "Life is precious," but all of Gianni's speech was beautiful.  And I loved what he said about the Versace bride, not being timid, being strong, having lived life.  

And yes, the fake Donatella person was funny  :big grin (although still a tense scene, due to Cunanan watching intensely).

Oh and I liked the scenes with the woman detective, who was trying to correct all of the FBI's incompetence, and the FBI's lack of caring.

Darren Criss: Today’s the day. I’m very proud of all the hard work our cast & crew put into this, and I’m excited to share it with the world. I’d like to remind viewers that these were very real crimes that destroyed very real people.
My heart goes out - as it did every day going in to work- to the victims and their loved ones, who, 20 years later, still must cope with the tragedies that our series depicts.
My hope is that our show can bring some kind of justice to those whose stories have, until now, lived mostly in the shadows. And my prayer is that with all the darkness we explore, we can create some kind of light- by igniting discussion and encouraging much larger questions about ourselves and the society we live in.

beadiazmiami Its a wrap! So grateful to have gotten to work on ‘American Crime Story; Versace/Cunanan’ show, for the weeks they shot in here in Miami. Great crew and cast! Coming out in January on FX. #acs #versace #hair #hairstylist #blessed #grateful #makeup #makeupartist #filmshoot #tvshow #setlife #crewlife #locationshoot #miami #miamibeach #americancrimestory





I like the parallelism between this message and a previous promo photo with Cunanan's face, with the message "He killed more than an icon."
