Jessica Lange, who?

In the first season of "American Horror Story" since Ryan Murphy's famous lead left the series, pop singer Lady Gaga has stepped up to win her first ever Golden Globe. Winning in the category of Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Movie or Miniseries, Gaga took home the trophy for her role of the Countess in "American Horror Story: Hotel."

What a way to debut an acting career than to take home this useless award -- quoting Ricky Gervais, here -- and Gaga's reaction is just perfect. No wonder showrunner Ryan Murphy has asked her to return for the show's sixth iteration ... whatever that may be.

"I feel like Cher in that John Patrick Shanley film 'Moonstruck' right now, this is one of the greatest moments of my life," she says while thanking Ryan Murphy and the cast.

"You're my family forever ... Because of you, I was 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."

"The things I put my body through and my mind through when I'm working, it makes me like a child, I can't even do things on my own," she continues, teary-eyed. "You allow that and you take care of me and you help me to explore my creativity in ways i never thought I could."

Gaga was nominated for the award alongside Kirsten Dunst ("Fargo"), Sarah Hay ("Flesh and Bone"), Felicity Huffman ("American Crime") and Queen Latifah ("Bessie").
