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.”

Wonderful pic of two very proud artists!  heart  Nice words from Cody Fern (who btw stated on social media that the reason why he didn't attend the Emmy ceremony was because he was working on AHS).

Meanwhile I kind of peeled my finger instead of the potato I was aiming for, so now I can't bend it and typing is a bit of a bother. I shouldn't be allowed around sharp objects.  Topics tagged under proudpinoy on Darren Criss Fan Community 1314804351


Thanks so much, Lin.  :happy face  Oh my, I'm so sorry about your injury, Lin.  I hope it's not too much skin.  I've done that before.  I hate it when I hurt myself in the kitchen.  Cooking is dangerous!  Whatever you do, do not buy a mandoline.  I knew someone who used it without the guard and he literally cut a chunk of the tip of his finger off.  Poor man was uninsured, so he didn't go to the doctor, but at the very next opportunity, he signed up for the Affordable Care Act.   Sorry, I'm digressing.  Embarassed  I'm guessing you hurt  it on the knuckle?   Keep it loosely bandaged in the day if you are using that hand to prevent it from getting re-hurt.    I hope it heals soon, Lin.  : it's gonna be ok

I saw people from England and Australia complain that they still don't have a release date, so it's all the more surprising to me that Germany already has one and it's less than three weeks after the official premiere. Not that I could wait that long or even have the channel, but still exciting! It usually takes several months at least for most shows (that aren't Game of Thrones).

Thanks for the info, Lin.  I think I will keep a log of  the release dates for the various countries and the channels when I find out.  Lin, on what channel will folks in Germany be able to see Versace?   And what is the release date?   Thanks so much!







So I had missed this post on Darren Criss Army.   Versace will show on BBC Two in England.

A few quotes from the article:



The Sun wrote:
Gritty BBC thriller examines the murder of Italian designer Gianni Versace


Some think his showbiz lifestyle is what drew Cunanan to him. It is unknown if the two men had met before the day of the murder.

[. . . ]

Cunanan's first two victims were his friend Jeffrey Trail, who he battered to death with a hammer, and his ex-lover David Madson, who he kept hostage then shot.

Cunanan, who worked as a prostitute, then went to Chicago and beat tycoon Lee Miglin, 72, to death in the garage of his luxury home.

He made his getaway in Miglin's car and drove to New Jersey where he met his fourth victim, William Reese, a caretaker at Finn's Point National Cemetery.

By the time Cunanan got to Versace's home, he'd been evading capture for two months.

Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth, who has published a book, Vulgar Favors, about the murder, believes he murdered Versace for the notoriety. “He was willing to kill for fame. He wanted to be everything Versace was, but he wasn’t willing to work for it,“ she said.

"He was willing to kill for fame. He wanted to be everything Versace was, but he wasn't willing to work for it," she said.

Meanwhile, the show’s director, Ryan Murphy, said: "We’re not interested in the killer-of-the-week approach. We’re trying to understand the psychology of someone who would be driven to do those deeds.”

The series will premiere in America on January 17, 2018 on FX. A UK date is yet to be announced but it’s expected in early 2018 and will air on BBC Two.

Nicely said, Ryan.  :happy face One tiny correction:  I think the writer meant when Ryan saw Darren in the Hedwig and the Angry Inch (tour) production in Los Angeles, unless anyone knows that Ryan did see Darren in Hedwig on Broadway?

The Assassination of Gianni Versace:  Ryan Murphy says he knew Darren Criss was 'capable of great darkness'

January 4, 2017

Cover your eyes, Gleeks. Darren Criss, who played squeaky clean, bow-tie aficionado Blaine Anderson on Fox’s Glee is about to shed that image.

The actor has his darkest and most challenging role to date as serial killer Andrew Cunanan in FX’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, premiering Jan. 17 on FX. Cunanan not only killed the titular designer, played by Edgar Ramirez, but also four other men in 1997. Portraying the sociopath, Criss vacillates between being charming, pathetic, ruthless, and psychotic.

“I did as much research as humanly possible,” says Criss. But, “there’s not a whole lot of preparation you can do. The only thing you can really do is being available to all emotions at all times. At any point, he’s ready to fire off in any direction.”

Executive producer Ryan Murphy was adamant that Criss play Cunanan after seeing the actor on Broadway in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. “I just knew he could do it,” reveals Murphy. “More than that, I knew that he was super hungry and ambitious. I think people thought of Darren as a musical comedy star first. But, when I saw Hedwig, I knew he was capable of great darkness.”

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story premieres Jan. 17 at 10 p.m. on FX.

He is with BuzzFeed.  I liked his phrasing:  "@DarrenCriss is Grade A crazy and wonderful as Cunanan."  :big grin

What to Watch: TV chat with Hank Stuever

Topics tagged under proudpinoy on Darren Criss Fan Community Tumblr_p21mb3UbGs1wcyxsb_og_500
Post TV critic Hank Stuever talked about what's bad, good and so bad it's good on TV.

Here's what Hank would watch if he wasn't paid to watch TV: "Game of Thrones," "The Americans," "The Amazing Race" and "Shameless" Lately he's been digging "The Chi" "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story," "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," "The Crown" and "Below Deck."

Q: American Crime Story

Do you think The Assassination of Gianni Versace has the potential to be as big as The People vs OJ Simpson? Or is 90s gay politics too niche for audiences?

A: Hank Stuever


Is it political, though? What principles did Andrew Cunanan stand for?

That said, I think you’re onto something. Make the subject gay (either a little bit or a lot) and you still lose some potential audience (dude bros, mainly), though not nearly to the degree that you once might have. Plus, I think everyone wants to tune in to see if this one is as good as the last one. Versace is nowhere near the true-crime mania that accompanies the subject of O.J. Simpson. Minus the crazed gay serial killer angle and debaucherous gay luxury angle, he Versace murder is hard sell as a work of nostalgia or revisionist drama.

I have seen two episodes at this point, but I have a feeling I’ll be bingeing a lot more of it tonight in advance of FX’s presentations tomorrow. What I can say, so far, is that this series hits the same sweet spot that the O.J. series did, between fact and sensation. Darren Criss goes all out as Andrew Cunanan.

[. . . ]

Q: Darren Criss 


Is that the Street Magician guy?

A:
Hank Stuever

No, it’s the guy from “Glee.”

This is well done.  I love all the images of  Cunanan, Versace, Donatella, reflected in the sun glasses (beginning with the image of Cunanan sneaking up on Versace, which we see repeated, and the "V" for Versace), with the glasses becoming cracked and broken, and how at the end, all you see are Cunanan's scary eyes.   wha?    So it premieres somewhere on Canal FX Latino on January 18.  I wonder where?
