[b]mrrpmurphy:[/b] More backstage happiness at the GG’s. Darren and I went on such a long and rewarding journey with VERSACE. He waited for two years and then threw himself into the part with such abandon. I loved what he said in his acceptance speech about his parents and his heritage. Proud to be with him as he keeps making these amazing victory laps. And on GG night, we both separately seemed to get the memo that embroidered and appliqued tuxedos were the way to go.

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 ninajacobson 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.

May 17, 2018


Foxtel held what it called an intimate cocktail soiree for visiting US actor Darren Criss last night in Sydney. The venue could have not been more appropriate – The Penthouse at The Ivy.

Criss is the star of the forthcoming installment of the American Crime Story franchise, The Assassination of Gianni Versace. The series is an FX original and under the new deal Foxtel has for FX programming, the series will screen on the showcase channel and also be available on demand.

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.

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”

Too bad Finn Wittrock and Ryan were not able to attend.  I wish the moderator had asked Jon Jon Briones a question.   What Darren said was touching, about his scenes with Mike Farrell's Lee Miglin.  Darren was very eloquent in discussing how skillfully Mike Farrell portrayed the internal conflict that Lee Miglin  struggled with, how Mike Farrell so skillfully expressed what Lee Miglin felt to be his personal demons, being in the closet, and struggling to reconcile that with being a good man, a man who loved his wife deeply.  Darren said the hardest part for him was seeing that conflict in the eyes of Mike Farrell's Lee Miglin, with Darren knowing his character was the vehicle that would destroy this good man's soul.  I guess Mike Farrell was in the audience?  High compliments from Darren to Mike Farrell for his poignant portrayal of Lee Miglin.   (I completely agree.  I thought Mike Farrell was so good at capturing the vulnerability, the sweetness, of this kind man, who struggled so greatly.  I think I emotionally bonded the most with Cody Fern's David Madson and Mike Farrell's Lee Miglin.  I think it was because of their sweetness, their vulnerability, their softness.)  Darren also had discussed before how he has tried to keep up the morale of the cast by keeping things light on set while not filming, which is so nice.  I agree with Darren that the emotion of anger is a simple emotion, but I distinguish acting out violence as something that is not a simple act, because violence involves not just expressing anger against a target, but also may involve expressing power over another human being, as well as  involve other emotions felt by the person who acts out the violence, such as the emotions of hurt and betrayal.  Edgar made me cry, imagining how Gianni  Versace died slowly, perhaps hearing and feeling the grief of those he loved and who loved him, the grief of Antonio.  Edgar also had nice words about Penelope, how even with his eyes closed, Edgar felt the grief acted by Penelope as Donatella.   Cody Fern is funny--how he was getting into the emotion of realizing his character was about to die, and then Darren cheerfully greets him.  It was nice of Cody to say that he appreciated Darren's efforts to bring some balance to the emotions on the set while not filming.   I also thought it was interesting what Max Greenfield said, about how it was important to hold onto the emotions of the character, of feeling lost, of the sorrow, until shooting ended, but once filming ended, he felt a great sense of a weight being lifted.   Again, I really wish Jo Jo Briones had an opportunity to talk about what it was like to play the father of Andrew Cunanan--the master who taught the student how to lie and charm, how to dominate and tear down people's souls and self-esteem.

Interesting excerpts of the discussion at the Finale screening.  Please visit the site to read the entire article--a very interesting issue raised by Ricky Martin of having to relive in the closet for one of the scenes, and I also learned that Jon Jon Briones  would shoot his scenes in Versace, then take a red eye to do a matinee and evening performance for Miss Saigon on Broadway!  Jon Jon also has some kind words for the director of Episode 8, Matt Bomer.  :happy face

American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace cast reveals most difficult scenes to film

March 20, 2018

Emmy nominations may be four months away, but the campaign season kicked off on Monday night, when the cast and producers of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story reunited for a For Your Consideration event at the Directors Guild of America theater in Los Angeles.

After a screening of the season finale, “Alone” (March 21 at 10 p.m. ET on FX), stars Darren Criss, Edgar Ramirez, Ricky Martin, Cody Fern, Max Greenfield, Judith Light, and Jon Jon Briones, as well as executive producer Brad Simpson, EP/writer Tom Rob Smith, and Vulgar Favors author Maureen Orth, talked openly about the challenges of bringing the story of Andrew Cunanan and his victims to the screen, the most difficult scenes to film, and, of course, which wardrobe pieces they really wanted to steal.

[. . . ]

The hardest scene Darren Criss had to film did not involve murder


Though he murders four people onscreen as killer Andrew Cunanan, Criss said the most difficult scene for him to film was the intense encounter in episode 3 between Andrew and his third victim, Chicago real estate mogul Lee Miglin (played by M*A*S*H star Mike Farrell). “People always ask me what the hardest thing to shoot was, and I think they want to hear the violence, the aggression — but those are simple things,” said Criss. “Violence is a base act from a very accessible place — it’s easy to get angry. But what is truly twisted and heartbreaking is looking into Mike Farrell’s eyes [as he’s] playing this deeply closeted man who loves his wife, and is truly a good man who is fighting a demon he can’t escape — and then me having to drive the car as somebody waging psychological warfare on this person. When I would leave those scenes, I’d feel like, Ugghhh,” the actor continued. “I think people on set maybe thought it was because I was getting intimate with Mike Farrell — it wasn’t that, it was having to, like, penetrate a man’s soul who was trying so desperately to keep it together.”

Thanks so much, Jeremy, for posting that YouTube video!!

I think it's the white in Matt Bomer's beard.  White in one's hair and facial hair of men tends to age a person.  But when he's clean-shaven, he looks the same as he did before. 



Having seen many of the promos and the preview video, it's clear that Cunanan plays a central role, as well as Versace.   And to think, the show will be airing in the U.S. in about a month from now!  celebrate 




Here is the same video--I wanted to include it because of the caption.

More pics of Darren, Ryan, Matt Bomer, and Nina Jacobson (I believe she also is an executive producer of Versace) and some of the Versace family visiting Jon Jon Briones in Miss Saigon on Broadway.   It looks like Darren organized folks to get together to view Mr. Briones in the musical.   Everyone looks very happy.    :happy face
