Some congrats via social media to Darren for being awarded an Emmy.  I believe I found most of these via @acsversace-news or @DCriss_News.  (Note:  This is in addition to the other posts I made somewhere upstream.  For example Grant Gustin's instagram video congratulating Darren is somewhere above.)  The posts with pics/screen shots are via Darren Criss Army, D-Criss-News, gottalivealoha, ipwarn--thank you!



Ok, is the S.E. Hinton a fan of Darren? confused









Media

Many more congrats from media are posted somewhere above.  The Broadway sites (Broadway.com, BroadwayWorld, Playbill etc) also congratulated Darren via social media.

There were a lot of media that congratulated Darren but I wanted to post this one from Broadway.com because I thought it was sweet.








ACS Versace cast/crew


Again, I tried to post whatever congrats from the ACS Versace family that the DC fan sites noted, so there are many of those posts somewhere above.

StarKids

Note:  I noticed there are a lot of StarKid friends of Darren who used social media to congratulate him.  I think it's safe to assume every single member of the StarKid theater group is so happy for Darren and congratulated him.  At the end, I posted whatever congratulations via social media from StarKid friends'  that I saw that Darren Criss Army posted (see somewhere above), but there are so many more StarKids' posts than that, and it would take so much time for me to post all their social media congratulations.  Sorry!   :apology   (To be honest, I'm having trouble keeping straight whether I already posted someone's congratulations to Darren, or not--there are so many!)

Love this message from Word Theatre.  So true about Darren--this is one of his special traits, taking time to support good causes even when he is so busy (and must be very tired).  Love so much that he does this time and time again.  heart heart heart This is also one of my favorite performances of his.  He sounds fantastic, and I love the visual and musical drama of this performance.

This video of Ashley Weston being so excited for Darren is very cute.






Some instagram messages (sorry-I didn't do screenshots).  The message from Tobi Lynn is especially sweet and heartfelt.

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










From Darren Criss Army:


I'm not sure how much violence is in this video (I closed my eyes at one part).

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).

Spoiler:

I've been wondering about Cunanan's siblings.

memoryrec: My little actor on set and soon behind the camera! So proud to celebrate today his admission to @lachsa_official in Cinematic Art!









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

carlinjames917: Just a reminder for anyone who cares. There’s legit gonna be the story of a “dysfunctional”, mixed-Filipino-American family told on TV!   wha? This NEVER happens!! It still blows my mind, and I’m so grateful I get to be a small part of it. #RepresentationMatters
