25 TV Performances From 2018 That We Can't Stop Talking About


12. Darren Criss’s Emmy Award-winning turn as Andrew Cunanan in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story

Goodbye Blaine Anderson, because now every time we think of Darren Criss, we’re reminded of his chilling performance as Andrew Cunanan in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. His Emmy win was totally worth it this year as he portrayed a complicated antagonist that stole every single scene.

The 20 best TV series of 2018

THE ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE: AMERICAN CRIME STORY

American Crime Story’s second-season miniseries, The Assassination of Gianni Versace, never came close to turning into the zeitgeist-grabbing sensation that its first season, The People v. O. J. Simpson, became. But in many ways, it’s even more daring. Loosely told in reverse chronological order — the average episode takes place months or even years before the one preceding it — the series is a deep dive into the pasts of two gay men, a murderer and his most famous victim, shaped by a culture that forced them to keep big pieces of their lives a secret. This American Crime Story miniseries isn’t exactly an uplifting way to pass the time, but the unusual structure and Darren Criss’ riveting performance as the sociopathic serial killer Andrew Cunanan make it vital.

The 10 Best Crime Shows of 2018

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

Sadly, few paid attention to Ryan Murphy’s second true crime exercise in restraint after the glowing reception that greeted American Crime Story’s first season, and perhaps that’s because Murphy is just so damn prolific, with not one, but two prestige television series in the same year. This moody, menacing drama is absolutely worth watching, we must insist; The Assassination of Gianni Versace transcends its sensationalist (and homophobic) true crime origin material to immerse the viewer in a nuanced view of the pressures and iniquities of 90s era gay life. Darren Criss delivers a tour-de-force performance as serial killer Andrew Cunanan, emphasizing the Ripley-like qualities of Cunanan’s character, and Tom Rob Smith injects the series with the mystery expertise of a professional crime writer, for a series rich in both text and subtext.

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

Disclaimer: I was on set for this show, to write about Ryan Murphy, so, naturally, I’m going to be biased. The backward chronology only semi-worked—and a lot of viewers I know dropped out after the kinky ultra-violence early on. But Darren Criss is mind-bendingly good, at once empathetic and damning, as Andrew Cunanan. And, truly, I’ve thought about this show more than almost any show this year: it taught me a lot about a time that I lived through and thought I understood.

mrrpmurphy: Edgar Ramirez walked into my office two years ago and that was the beginning of a beautiful friendship. He was nervous about playing Gianni Versace…of living up to the legend. But he dove in and tackled the part with so much research and love and kindness and beauty. Edgar has such a wonderful humanity and love of all he brings to every scene, every moment. Today was he nominated for a Golden Globe for playing Gianni and I’m so thrilled and happy and proud of him. Love you Edgar!!!!









Topics tagged under penélopecruz on Darren Criss Fan Community Tumblr_pjc6uv5fT11wcyxsbo1_540
mrrpmurphy: Penelope Cruz is just as wonderful and talented as you think she is. She’s been a friend for years, and I begged her to play Donatella in “The Assassination of Gianni Versace.” Penelope was hesitant, nervous, as anyone would be. But she gave it her all, and prepared for months with such precision and love and respect. When she showed up on set she WAS Donatella. A consummate professional, always giving her all, today she was nominated for a Golden Globe for her stellar work in “Versace” and I couldn’t be more proud of her. Love you, Penelope!!!!











These are nice messages from Edgar and Penelope thanking Ryan for his support, congratulating the other cast members who were nominated, and giving love to Ricky.  Maybe it'll be a good idea for Darren to do something similar? :cheeky

Darren Criss, Best Actor in a Limited Series


The Glee alumnus has officially shed his high school teeny bopper persona and is now a bonafide actor. As Andrew Cunanan, the killer of Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace in Ryan Murphy’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace, he delivered a stunning performance some weren’t sure he could pull off. He won the Emmy for this same award earlier this year.

Emmy Predictions 2018: Forecasting Nominations for Limited Series, Reality & Variety Categories

May 18, 2018

OUTSTANDING LIMITED SERIES

American Vandal
The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
Godless
Howards End
Twin Peaks


It’s a tough year to call for limited series, since nothing really took the nation by storm like Big Little Lies or The People v. O.J. Simpson in years past. Even if initial critics were divided on Gianni Versace I think the final product was immensely powerful and will probably be the frontrunner as such. I also expect something as high profile as Twin Peaks to be nominated despite its divisiveness. From there it’s anyone’s guess, so I’m betting on two Netflix series that have earned acclaim, American Vandal and Godless, since they have both done fairly well in precursor awards. I’m guessing Howards End will round out the five, as the TV Academy loves prestigious British dramas, especially those written by legendary writers like Kenneth Lonergan.

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTOR IN A LIMITED SERIES OR TELEVISION MOVIE

Darren Criss – The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
Benedict Cumberbatch – Patrick Melrose
Michael B. Jordan – Fahrenheit 451
Kyle MacLachlan – Twin Peaks
Al Pacino – Paterno
Evan Peters – American Horror Story: Cult

Darren Criss should be the runaway frontrunner for his stellar performance as Andrew Cunanan in Gianni Versace, but Kyle MacLachlan will ideally be hot on his trail for playing three different characters in the Twin Peaks revival. Al Pacino will likely get in for yet another HBO TV movie where he plays a controversial public figure, while Benedict Cumberbatch gets in every year for whatever he does, so why not Patrick Melrose, too? After the great year Michael B. Jordan is having I’m guessing he can sneak into this category, even if Fahrenheit 451 doesn’t have the best reviews. For the last slot I’m going with a passion pick, but Evan Peters gave his best performance on American Horror Story yet this past season and I’m going out on a limb and saying the remaining AHS fans in the Academy will push him through.

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A LIMITED SERIES OR TELEVISION MOVIE

Jeff Daniels – Godless
Brandon Victor Dixon – Jesus Christ Superstar
Edgar Ramirez – The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
Jason Ritter – The Tale
Michael Shannon – Fahrenheit 451
Sam Waterston – Godless

No idea. Seriously, this category is an absolute mess this year and the winner could be anyone. For now I’m going with people associated with what I expect to be the limited series and movies Emmy voters will watch, so Jeff Daniels, Edgar Ramirez, Michael Shannon, and Sam Waterston it is. Tentatively adding in Jason Ritter as well. Then there’s Brandon Victor Dixon, who had extremely strong reviews for Jesus Christ Superstar and could angle himself into becoming the first actor from one of these recent live musicals to get an acting nomination.

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A LIMITED SERIES OR TELEVISION MOVIE

Ellen Burstyn – The Tale
Penélope Cruz – The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
Laura Dern – Twin Peaks
Nicole Kidman – Top of the Lake: China Girl
Angela Lansbury – Little Women
Judith Light – The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story

Hooray double nomination for Laura Dern! Like with Supporting Actor it’s hard to say exactly who will get in here, so it’s best to go with the seen contenders, like Ellen Burstyn in The Tale, Penélope Cruz and Judith Light in Gianni Versace, and probably Nicole Kidman for Top of the Lake. Then I expect there to be a big narrative for 18x Emmy loser Angela Lansbury to get a nomination that could even propel her to a win.

The subtle brilliance of American Crime Story’s ‘Versace’ second season

Topics tagged under penélopecruz on Darren Criss Fan Community Tumblr_p8xb21jGrd1wcyxsb_r1_og_500

May 18, 2018

I am a huge fan of producer Ryan Murphy. After his hit shows Nip/Tuck and Glee, I’ve gone on to watch American Horror Story, Scream Queens, Feud and, most recently, American Crime Story – not a spin-off, but more of a cousin to AHS. When the first season of ACS came to BBC2 in 2016, my friends and I watched together in unison and live-texted each other updates. In fact, I’d go as far as to say the debut of American Crime Story was perfect and was, I think, one of the best seasons of television ever seen.

[. . . ]

. . . In fact, I enjoyed the show a whole lot more than I anticipated I would and thought it was a fantastic series as a result of the perspective it took; even Ryan Murphy himself suggests that this season is “the best thing [he] has ever made”. I think that writer Tom Rob Smith did a fantasic job on breaking apart the character of Andrew Cunanan and exploring him from as many angles as possible. By the end of the season, I felt like I knew everything that could possibly be known about Cunanan – maybe even too much – and it was fascinating to see. It’s the kind of character study that you could only possibly explore over the course of 10 hours, something that a limited series really allows Smith and Murphy to do perfectly.

[. . . ]

Marketing campaigns aside though and I do really think that ACS’s sophomore run was fantastic in its own right. As I said previously, what struck me initially as being brilliant was its structure and detail that it was given thanks to head writer Tom Rob Smith. The story really was liberated in regards to time and had no problem in moving backwards and forwards through Cunanan’s timeline to serve different perspectives on the character. Its structure and its writing felt fresh and unique: while season one was pretty linear in how it told the story and was incredibly well written in its own way, Versace managed to be brilliant too and its structure served its story beautifully.

Of course, the show is only as good as it is because of its cast, too, and Darren Criss really knocked it out of the park with his portrayal of Andrew Cunanan. I think it’s hard to see people in different lights when you’re used to seeing them one way and after seeing Criss on Glee for so many years, I really didn’t think I’d be able to shake that off. But I did and Criss was amazing in a performance that surely earns him at least an Emmy nod, if not a win. Yes, the writing did an incredible job at making Andrew layered and extremely complex, but it was Darren’s performance that really brought that to life and made it so endearing. Kudos to him and his work.

'Game of Thrones,' 'Handmaid's Tale' and 'black-ish' lead our 2018 Emmys buzzmeter

May 17, 2018

It’s the year(s) of Peak TV when there’s so much quality programming on the air that it seems there’s just never enough time to watch everything.

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

Foxtel had decorated The Ivy Penthouse with a shimmering golden curtain, which provided a glamorous backdrop for photos.

Key invited media mingled with Foxtel executives Stephen Baldwin and Jim Buchanwhile Foxtel’s Jamie Campbell conducted an informal interview with Criss before showing a short highlights reel.

Criss has many fans in Australia from his good work on Glee as Blaine Anderson. Campbell and Criss spoke about how the actor prepared for his role in The Assassination of Gianni Versace, where he plays the murderer Andrew Cunanan.

Inspired by actual events, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story is the second installment of FX’s award-winning limited series, American Crime Story.

Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Brad Falchuk, Alexis Martin Woodall, Dan Minahan, Tom Rob Smith, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski are Executive Producers of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. It is written by Tom Rob Smith, and Ryan Murphy directed the premiere episode of the series, which stars Darren Criss, Edgar Ramirez, Penelope Cruz and Ricky Martin.  The series is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.

GUEST BIO

Darren Criss stars as Andrew Cunanan in the FX anthology series The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

Criss is an Emmy®️ nominated artist with an illustrious career spanning television, film, music and stage.

Criss debuted his indiepop band Computer Games along with his brother Chuck Criss. Their first album, Lost Boys Life EP, which features four songs written by the duo, quickly became a fan favorite and debuted to rave reviews. The lead single “Every Single Night” debuted at #2 on Billboard’s “Hot Singles” chart and landed on various lists including “50 Best Songs of 2017 So Far,” “20 Awesome Pop Songs From 2017’s First Half You Might Have Missed,” “10 Great Pop Songs From March You Might’ve Missed” and deemed one of the best moments at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards. Teen Vogue labeled the album as “an indie gem filled with plenty of 80s pop inspiration and a dash of true DIY sensibility,” while Entertainment Weekly described their sound as “a funky blast to the past in the spirit of some of the grooviest ’80s superstars.”

Last fall, Criss returned to Broadway in his critically-acclaimed performance as “Hedwig” in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which kicked off the 2014 Tony Award-winning Best Musical Revival’s national tour. The New York Times touted Criss as “mesmerizing” when he first stepped into the title role on Broadway in 2015. Criss made his Broadway debut in January of 2012 as “J. Pierrepont Finch” in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. With Criss at the helm, the revival made just under $4 million, which proved to be the most lucrative three weeks of its 11-month run. Criss is also the co-founder of New York City’s first showtunes music festival, Elsie Fest.

Criss is best known for playing “Blaine Anderson” on FOX’s global phenomenon Glee. He received an Emmy nomination in 2015 for Best Original Music and Lyrics for the song “This Time,” which appeared in the episode titled “Dreams Come True.” As a member of the cast, he was also nominated for two Screen Actors Guild®️ Awards. Criss’ previous credits include Girl Most Likely, American Horror Story, Web Therapy and Eastwick.

We will be screening episode 9 - “Alone”

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.
The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story premieres tonight at 10pm ET on FX.

Darren Criss Shares the Story Behind His Racy Selfie!
Darren Criss broke the internet back when he shared a photo of himself wearing absolutely nothing and just a speedo held in front of himself to stay modest.

Now, the 30-year-old actor is sharing the story behind the picture, which he snapped on the set of The Assassination of Gianni Versace earlier this year.

Darren opened up during his visit with The Ladygang podcast.

“I was wearing this ridiculous red speedo thing and thank god it was for the show because pictures had come out, the paparazzi had caught us. We’re shooting a scene on the beach and it’s Miami. It’s fair game, we’re out in the open so there are photos of me in a scene with Max Greenfield and I’m in this red speedo and I look kind of ridiculous. We’re all kind of giggling about this on set, like, ‘Oh my god, this is getting picked up.’ And I kind of wanted to take it back for myself,“ Darren said.

“At the end of that day, I was completely sunburned and was essentially the same color as the speedo and so I’m looking at myself in the mirror thinking this is too funny. So after those photos went out, I was like, ‘I have a better photo.’ So that was that,“ Darren added.

Darren also said he was very proud of the caption, which "no one read.” It was, “So what’s more red? My sunburn, my speedo, or YOUR FACE??? #ACSVersace.”

'American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace' Primer: Everything to Know About Season 2

December 21, 2017

After an award-winning debut season, FX's American Crime Story anthology will turn its lens to another major 1990s event: the murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace in front of his Miami Beach mansion in 1997. The Assassination of Gianni Versace will follow the events leading up to the 50-year-old’s death through the eyes of the designer (played by Edgar Ramirez), his sister, Donatella Versace (Penelope Cruz), his partner, Antonio D'Amico (Ricky Martin) and the 27-year-old serial killer who shot him, Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss).

Ahead of the show’s Jan. 17 debut, here’s everything to know about the second season of Ryan Murphy’s award-winning series.

What Happened


On the morning of July 15, 1997, the fashion designer had just returned from a morning walk when he was shot and killed by Andrew Cunanan, a con artist serial killer who had gone on a cross-country killing spree. The San Diego native had murdered two acquaintances in the San Diego gay community, a Chicago real estate developer, and a New Jersey man whose car he stole. The four other slayings took place between April 27 and May 9, and Cunanan was on the run — but managed to elude authorities until eight days after Versace’s murder, when he killed himself on a Miami houseboat just blocks from Versace’s villa.

The Source Material


Much like season one’s People vs. O.J. Simpson was inspired by L.A. Times journalist Jeffrey Toobin’s book about the trial, The Run of His Life, The Assassination of Gianni Versace pulls from Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth’s book about the murder, Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History. According to creator Murphy, the second season will delve into Cunanan’s mind and cover the events leading up to Versace’s death. The season will touch on the four other murders, as well as Cunanan’s life in the San Diego gay community, the homophobia present in the culture at the time, and even the ‘90s Don’t Ask Don’t Tell military policy.“We’re trying to talk about a crime within a social idea,” he told reporters during the summer. “Versace, who was [Andrew Cunanan’s] last victim, did not have to die. One of the reasons [Cunanan] was able to make his way across the country and pick off these victims, many of whom were gay, was because of homophobia at the time.”

Darren Criss: Andrew Cunanan

The former Glee triple-threat, who starred on Broadway in the musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch (and in the Los Angeles stop of the national tour), plays the 27-year-old killer, who was on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list at the time of his suicide.

In the upcoming television anthology, Glee star Darren Criss will portray Cunanan. “At the end of the day, if you think of the worst person that you know, that’s done the worst things ever, you have more in common with them than not,” Criss said of playing Cunanan in an interview with radio personality Elvis Duran. “The fact is, those differences are big, but they’re small in number … So, what’s kind of been a joy for me is to find as many redeeming things as possible in someone that you fathom as something so horrible and to really get the audience to ask themselves, ‘At what point could this have been me?”

gleekto:
The EW issue is worth buying, but here’s some details about the Versace production from it that I haven’t seen mentioned elsewhere.


Spoilers follow.


- Ricky and Edgar have already shot a sex scene.
- Versace was reportedly HIV-positive and the production is going to treat this as truth.
- Donatella’s biggest concern about the project was her children being depicted, so they removed that element.
- There will be nine episodes, instead of ten like OJ had.
- Instead of a standard writers’ room, Tom Rob Smith is expected to craft all nine episodes.
- OJ had a linear narrative, but Versace will cut back and forth between 1997 and Versace’s and Cunanan’s pasts.
- “There’s a propulsive thriller energy to the episodes, as well as heavy doses of family politics and glamour.”
- Giorgio Armani will appear but has yet to be cast.
- Edgar Ramirez: “It’s a very dramatic story. It’s a story about family. It’s a story about fate. In a way it’s very classic - it’s almost like a Greek tragedy.”
Gleekto says:
Thank you for this submission. Cool things.
