Congratulations are in order for Lady Gaga!
She won best actress in a miniseries or motion picture made-for-television at the Golden Globes Sunday night (Jan. 10) for her role as The Countess on American Horror Story: Hotel on FX.
Gaga dazzled on the red carpet in Versace alongside finance Taylor Kinney. Giving a brief series of interviews, Mother Monster admitted she calmed her nerves on the way to the event with “a glass of wine, and a cigarette, and a prayer in the car,” she said. “But I’m feeling really great. I’m just happy to be here. I’m in the company of so many talented actors, especially my cast of American Horror Story. I’m so grateful to be here with Ryan Murphy, such a talented man.”

Gaga joined Tom Ford on stage to present an award to Christian Slater for Best Supporting Actor in Mr. Robot.
But the real moment of the night was her win!
“I feel like Cher in that John Patrick Shanley film Moonstruck right now,” Gaga said. “This is one of the greatest moments of my life. I have to thank Ryan Murphy, you’re just a wonderful human being. You have believed in me so much and been such a good friend to me. Thank you to my wonderful cast, I love you guys so much, you’re my family forever. I have to thank Matt Bomer, Denis O’Hare, Angela Basset, Cheyenne Jackson, Finn Witrock, Chloë Sevigny, Evan Peters. I could go through the entire cast because you’re all so talent and because of you I was to able to shine, I guess. 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.”
