DARREN CRISS “THE ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE: AMERICAN CRIME STORY”
DARREN CRISS: Man, wow. This is such an honor to be in front of so many incredible people. I feel like I won a fan contest. This is incredible. Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press for your support throughout the years, especially to Ruben and Jen Napoles who have been in my corner since day one. I’d like to thank my teachers who are watching at home. And that actually includes some of my fellow ‑‑ all of my fellow nominees, who I’ve admired your work from afar for so long, and whether you like it or not, you’re actually kind of a part of this. So thank you for your inspiration. Thank you to Ryan Murphy, Fox, and FX for making me feel like I made varsity this year. Thank you, Mia, for your undying patience and love, that was waiting for me when I got home. This was kind of a grim story to make, and so I have to thank our tireless crew, producers, writers, actors, artisans that actually made this a fun place to do some not‑so‑fun things. You collectively made whatever I did on set much better than I remember it being. And lastly, as we’ve seen, this has been a marvelous year for representation in Hollywood, and I am so enormously proud to be a teeny‑tiny part of that as the son of a firecracker Filipina woman from Cebu who dreamed of coming to this country and getting to be invited to cool parties like this. So, mom, I know you’re watching this. You are hugely responsible for most of the good things in my life. I love you dearly. I dedicate this to you. Congratulations to all of you. This is totally awesome.
