Lady Gaga wins Golden Globe for debut TV role in ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’

Singer collects the prize for Best Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture made for Television

Lady Gaga has won a Golden Globe tonight for her debut TV role in American Horror Story: Hotel.

The singer-turned-actress collected the prize for Best Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture made for Television for her performance as The Countess in the dark drama co-created by Glee‘s Ryan Murphy. The final episode of the 12-part series is due to air on US premium cable network FX on Tuesday (January 13).

“I feel like Cher in that John Patrick Shanley film Moonstruck right now. It’s one of the greatest moments of my life,” Gaga told the audience at LA’s Beverly Hilton Hotel as she collected her Golden Globe.

She proceeded to thank Ryan Murphy and her co-stars including Matt Bomer, Angela Bassett and Chloe Sevigny, before adding: “I wanted to be an actress before I wanted to be a singer, but music worked out first.”

Other winners at the 2016 Golden Globe Awards included Sam Smith, whose Bond theme ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ was named Best Original Song. Kate Winslet, Oscar Isaac and Matt Damon also took home prizes. Check out a gallery of all the winners from the annual film and TV awards here.
