Ok, is the S.E. Hinton a fan of Darren?
The only Emmy I cared about was Darren Criss--and he won! Deserved it!!— S. E. Hinton (@se4realhinton) September 18, 2018
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.

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.

Jane Lynch retweeted Jenna's congrats to Darren and I believe I saw that Amber congratulated Darren on her IG Story.
This man is a singer-songwriter. A great one, in fact. But apparently there’s a growing group of people who are convinced he is an actor, and now that he has an Emmy, I will never hear the end of it. https://t.co/LrVKuI824B— Brad Ellis (@BradEllisPiano) September 18, 2018
Heeeey congrats @DarrenCriss!!! Proud of you, dude!!!— Curt Mega (@curtmega) September 18, 2018
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! (To be honest, I'm having trouble keeping straight whether I already posted someone's congratulations to Darren, or not--there are so many!)
Pat Brady: I love this picture..it says it all
Ok, thanks to Lilikoiluv, I found this handy post of many of the StarKids congratulating Darren.

Another post that I found (via ipwarn-thank you!) that captures many of the StarKids' congrats to Darren. There's some overlap between this collage and the one via gottalivealoha/Lilikoiluv.

Holy fucking shit. @DarrenCriss. Look at you, brother. GO BLUE!— Andy Mientus (@andymientus) September 18, 2018
ryanlerman: So so happy for this guy! Congrats @darrencriss you bad mutherfucker. Never forget it’s mainly our snaps that got you here!

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. This is also one of my favorite performances of his. He sounds fantastic, and I love the visual and musical drama of this performance.
wordtheatre: While shooting 15 hour days on @acsversace @americancrimestoryfx @darrencriss took the time to support @wordtheatre in the schools by performing in our original production of In The Cosmos @fordtheatres in @discoverla - a hearty congrats to a superstar! @iemmys @televisionacad #emmys #emmys2018 #emmywinner #americancrimestory #versace #authors #actors #la #award #tv

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.
tony_marion Holy shit dude you won an Emmy! I never expected any success from you! PS I have an Emmy too....
tobitalks ring ring ring. um, my dear, #sweet, #genuine, #kind and #OMG so so so #talented friend @darrencriss won an #emmy tonight. AN EMMY! such a deserving award for such a refreshingly real and wonderfully true-blue human. oh dc, i’m so #happy for you! *side note: darren’s one of the busiest guys in the biz, but he’s also the guy who always texts back, always has a #smile on his face and always shares all of his #positivevibes to those around him. case in point, he sent me a text two days ago apologizing for being so busy and traveling and hence missing my birthday party. he’s a #midwest boy with a #heart of gold, and i feel so #lucky to call him my #friend. #xo #congratulations #DarrenCriss #emmys2018 #babes #bananaphone #flashback #gratitude #tobitalks #adayinthelifeofaDJ

Darren Criss stole our hearts on Glee, but with The Assassination of Gianni Versace, he proved himself to be an actor of hypnotic depth and endless range. Can't wait to see what you do next.— Netflix US (@netflix) September 18, 2018
