Lady Gaga Could Barely Speak After Her Golden Globes Win.

The vampire Countess of the Hotel Cortez
might have bitten the dust on “American
Horror Story” last week, but her legacy will
live forever — in gold. Lady Gaga, nominated for the first time
ever for a Golden Globe, took home the
award for Best Performance by an Actress
in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture
Made for Television at the ceremony
tonight (Jan 10). Gaga had big shoes to fill when she took on
the role of the Countess, taking the place of
AHS grande dame Jessica Lange (who was
nominated herself for this same award four
years running, and won in 2011.) But despite being up against some serious
competition, including Felicity Huffman,
Queen Latifah, Kirsten Dunst, and Sarah
Hay, Gaga proved that she’s worthy of
Lange’s mantle in every way when the
envelope was opened and her name was called out. Despite having achieved stardom on an
epic scale already as a musician (needless
to say, Gaga is no stranger to taking home
awards in honor of her work), this one
seemed to have special resonance for her,
as her reaction upon hearing her name was to start sobbing immediately.

In a breathlessly emotional speech, the
actress called her Globes win “one of the
greatest moments of my life,” before going
on to name Ryan Murphy and the rest of
the AHS cast in a round of heartfelt thank
yous. “You’re all so talented and because of you I
was able to shine, I guess,” said the star,
struggling to hold back tears.
