And The Golden Globe Goes To… A University Of Michigan Alum
The University of Michigan got a little love at this year's Golden Globes.
The 76th annual Golden Globe awards took place on Sunday, January 6th, and many deserving actors and actresses walked away winners, including University of Michigan alum, Darren Criss!
Criss won the Golden Globe for "Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television" category for his portrayal of Andrew Cunanan in "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story". Not only did U of M get a little attention because one of their alums won, but according to MLive, Criss gave a specific nod to "A Very Potter Musical" in his acceptance speech.
"A Very Potter Musical", for those unfamiliar, is a sort of fanfiction, musical production that both pays homage to Harry Potter and kind of makes fun of it at the same time. Once "A Very Potter Musical" hit the internet, it went viral. Viral enough that "A Very Potter Sequel" was created.
A big congrats to Darren Criss! Read more about his win here.
