    Filipino-American actor Darren Criss won an acting award at the Golden Globes this year according to ABS-CBN News.

    The Insider quoted him to have said that, “being half Filipino is one of my favorite things about me. I feel like I have been given a superhero cape and I am glad to step up to that plate. It’s a great privilege — and I am proud to be part of that.”

    “This has been a marvelous year for representation in Hollywood, and I am so enormously proud to be a teeny tiny part of that as the son of a firecracker Filipino woman from Cebu that dreamed of coming into this country and getting to be invited to cool parties like this. Mom, I know you’re watching this,” he said during his acceptance speech.

    Criss was hailed from Cebu and was recognized in his performance in FX’s “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.”
