The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story - Thu Dec 06, 2018 10:08 pm
darrencriss: Growing up I always loved watching the @goldenglobes with family and friends, so just to be in the room is a thrill- but to be nominated is just insane. What an honor to be included with such wonderful actors. Wow. Thank you, Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Congrats to @mrrpmurphy & cast and crew of @americancrimestoryfx!
I like that Ryan sent his congrats to each of his cast members and made it very personal.
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!!!!
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?
edgarramirez25: With my IPA in hand I wanna thank the #HFPA for this #GoldenGlobe nomination After a long night of shooting in South Africa, I woke up to this beautiful news. I am so happy and touched to share this honor with my beloved @darrencriss , @penelopecruzoficial and everyone involved in The Assassination Of Gianni Versace - most especially with my brother in arms @rickymartin -.

I am truly thrilled - Con mi IPA en mano, quiero agradecer a la #HFPA esta nominación al #GoldenGlobe Después de una larga noche de rodaje en Sudáfrica, me desperté con esta hermosa noticia. Estoy muy feliz y conmovido de poder compartir este honor con mis amados #DarrenChris #PenélopeCruz y todos los involucrados en El Asesinato de Gianni Versace, especialmente con mi hermano @rickymartin - .

penelopecruzoficial: Ha sido una semana llena de alegrias. Comenzó con las nominaciones a los Premios Forqué y a los Premios Feroz por la película “Todos lo saben” de Asghar Farhadi y siguió hoy con la noticia de la nominación a los Globos de Oro por interpretar a Donatella Versace ,a quien admiro tanto. Me siento muy afortunada por haber tenido la posibilidad de realizar ambos trabajos. Agradezco de corazón a los Forqué, los Feroz y la HFPA (Asociación de prensa extranjera de Hollywood) estas nominaciones. La ilusión es aún mayor cuando se reconoce además el trabajo de muchos de mis compañeros. Muchísimas gracias.

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.
Note: The Writers Guild nominations also were announced today.
