After winning big at the 2019 Golden Globes for his performance in “The Assassination of Gianni Versace," Filipino-American actor Darren Criss shared a sweet moment with his Pinay mom and some familiar-looking treats.
In his latest Instagram post, the actor said the morning after the awards night was "full of Filipino treats" and he spent it with a "fun spritely lady."
"Morning after Golden Globes celebration was full of Filipino treats including this fun spritely lady with me ... 'who dreamed of coming to this country and getting invited to glamorous parties like this...' Well Mom, I’m glad you made it," the caption read.
The proud half-Pinoy had dedicated his Golden Globe to his Cebuana mom, who was the star of a heartfelt speech at the awards show.
Criss is the first actor with Pinoy roots to win an acting award at the Golden Globes.
He won the Award for Best Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for his portrayal of Andrew Cunanan, the killer of the famed fashion designer Gianni Versace.
He was also the first Filipino-American to win an Emmy for the same role. — Margaret Claire Layug/DVM, GMA News
