‘American Horror Story: Hotel’s’ Ryan Murphy ‘Thrilled’ With Lady Gaga’s Golden Globe Win
Ryan Murphy is happy for Lady Gaga's first-ever Golden Globe win.
When asked if he had anticipated Gaga's win, Murphy told E! News: "The Golden Globes, you can never know what to expect with them. [But] I was just so thrilled for her because I think it's something she's wanted since she was a child, to be an actor."
The series co-creator continued, "When I first spoke to her she said, 'I wanted to be an actor before a musician, but I always tanked my auditions because I was too nervous.' I said, 'OK, I won't make you audition, I just want you to do my show.'"
The 29-year-old singer-actress won the Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie award at Sunday's Golden Globes for her performance as The Countess on "American Horror Story: Hotel."
Gaga beat out "Fargo's" Kirsten Dunst, "Flesh & Bones'" Sarah Hay, "American Crime's" Felicity Huffman and "Bessie's" Queen Latifah.
"I feel like Cher in that John Patrick Shanley movie 'Moonstruck,' Gaga said during her acceptance speech. "This is one of the greatest moments of my life."
The "Born This Way" hitmaker, who appeared to be genuinely surprised and taken aback, thanked each of her cast members by name for helping her to "shine." She also gave thanks to Ryan Murphy and her family.
"I wanted to be an actress before I wanted to be a singer -- but music worked out first," the six-time Grammy-winning recording artist revealed on stage.
Murphy added to E! News that Gaga had been such a pro since day one, noting that he's never met a an actor more dearly loved by the cast and the crew on set. "They really rooted for her every day ... She's one of a kind," Murphy gushed about Gaga.
