He played Andrew Cunanan, the killer of the famed fashion designer.
“To be nominated is just insane,” Darren said on Instagram when nominees were announced in December. “What an honor to be included with such wonderful actors. Wow. Thank you,” he added.
Growing up I always loved watching the @goldenglobes with family and friends, so just to be in the room is a thrill- but to be nominated is just insane. What an honor to be included with such wonderful actors. Wow. Thank you, Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Congrats to @mrrpmurphy & cast and crew of @americancrimestoryfx!
In his speech, Darren mentioned representation in Hollywood and dedicated his win to his Cebuana mom.
"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 Filipino woman from Cebu that dreamed of coming to this country and getting to be invited to cool parties like this. 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,” Darren said.
Previously, Darren became the first Filipino-American to win an Emmy for the same role. — LA, GMA News
