The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story won the Golden Globe for best television miniseries or motion picture made for television Sunday night.
The miniseries beat out The Alienist, Escape at Dannemora, Sharp Objects and A Very English Scandal. The award marked the limited series’ second win of the night after Darren Criss won for best actor in a limited series.
During the acceptance speech, producer Brad Simpson thanked FX for “supporting disruptive television.” Simpson later acknowledged that the series’ story took place during a time of “don’t ask, don’t tell” and despite the fashion designer’s murder taking place more than 20 years ago, “those forces of hate are still with us” in today’s society.
“They tell us that we should be scared of people that are different than us. They tell us we should have walls around ourselves. As artists, we must fight back by representing those who are not represented and by providing a space for people who are new voices for stories that haven’t been told,” Simpson said.
“As human beings, we resist in the streets, resist in the ballot box and practice love and empathy in our everyday lives. Our show is a period piece but those forces are not historical. They’re here. They’re with us and we must resist.”
The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story led the TV nominations during this year’s awards with four.
Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg are hosting the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards, which took place at The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.
