Lady Gaga is walking away from the 2016 Golden Globe Awards as a winner — a first-time winner! The “American Horror Story” star earned the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for her role as The Countess in Season 5 of the FX drama, “Hotel.”
The songstress-turned-actress beat out small screen stars Kirsten Dunst (“Fargo”), Sarah Hay (“Flesh & Bones”), Felicity Huffman (“American Crime”) and Queen Latifah (“Bessie”).
“I feel like Cher in the John Patrick Shanley film right now,” the 29-year-old artist said, referring to the 1987 romantic comedy “Moonstruck.” “This is one of the greatest moments of my life. I have to thank Ryan Murphy [“AHS” co-creator]. You’re just a wonderful human being. You have believed in me so much.”
Gaga continued to thank the “wonderful” cast from Matt Bomer, to Denis O’Hare and Evan Peters.
“I could go through the entire cast because you’re all so talented and because of you, I was able to shine. So, thank you for sharing your talent with me. I wanted to be an actress before I wanted to be a singer but music worked out first.”
After thanking her fellow “Hotel” co-stars, Gaga stated her gratitude to her team for standing by her side during her first TV endeavor as a lead actress.
“You helped me explore my creativity like I never thought I could,” the actress said.
Although Gaga didn’t thank her fiancé Taylor Kinney specifically, she did acknowledge her family throughout her acceptance speech.
