I remember when I announced that Lady Gaga had joined the cast of “American Horror Story: Hotel” in February 2015 and people were pissed. I don’t mean annoyed, I mean really pissed. There were hundreds of people commenting on our Facebook page saying how much of a travesty Ryan Murphy’s latest casting was and people were burning her at the stake before she even stepped on set for her first day as the vampire queen The Countess. I’m included in the group of people damning her because I’m not her biggest fan due to the horse-shit excuse for pop music she made back in the day. Looking at it now, though, I have to say that she pulled off her role as The Countess quite well.
And it seems that other people agree with me, too, to a much larger extent as it was officially announced tonight on television that Lady Gaga won the Golden Globe Award for “Best Actress in a Mini-Series or Television Film” for her role in “American Horror Story: Hotel.” Now she can put her Golden Globe Award next to her American Music Award, BET Award, Billboard Awards, GLAAD Media Awards, Grammy Awards, MTV Awards, People’s Choice Awards and Teen Choice Awards. However, this award will probably be special to her because it’s her first big achievement as a working actress.
After receiving the award, she said, “This is one of the greatest moments of my life. I have to thank Ryan Murphy – you’re just a wonderful human being. You have believed in me so much and been such a good friend to me. Thank you to my wonderful cast; I love you guys so much and you’re my family forever. I have to thank Matthew Bomer and Denis O’Hare and Angela Bassett and Cheyenne Jackson, Finn and Chloe Sevigny, Evan Peters… I could thank every single one of you because you’re all so talented and because of you I was able to shine. Thank you for sharing your talent with me.”
Say what you want about her music, I know I will, but she was part of the reason why this season of “American Horror Story: Hotel” was so great. Congratulations to you, Lady Gaga.
Also, Jamie Lee Curtis did not win the Golden Globe for “Best Actress in a Television Series, Comedy or Musical” for her role in “Scream Queens.” Maybe next time!
