Darren Criss readies festival celebrating musical theater
NEW YORK (AP) — Darren Criss says adding "Emmy winner" to his name feels good since it "used to be Emmy loser."
Criss won best actor in a limited series for his acclaimed role in "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story" last month. He was previously nominated for best original song for writing "This Time" from "Glee."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sterling K. Brown and Donald Glover aren't such Emmy outliers this year.
More than a third of the 101 acting nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards went to ethnic minorities, according to an analysis by The Associated Press. That's up from a quarter of the field last year, when Brown ("This Is Us") and Glover ("Atlanta") won top acting awards.

‘Versace’ stars: Anti-gay bias led to designer’s death
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Do the intersecting lives of a fashion designer and the serial killer who murdered him add up to a political saga?
Absolutely, says Ryan Murphy, the powerhouse executive producer of "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story," season two of the FX showcase that debuted with 2016's Emmy-winning "The People v. O.J. Simpson."
Versace family calls TV drama unauthorized ‘work of fiction’
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Versace family is distancing itself from an upcoming TV series about the 1997 murder of famed fashion designer Gianni Versace.
In a statement Monday, his family said it has neither authorized nor been involved in the series.
Since members of the family didn't authorize the book from which it's partly drawn or participate in the writing of the screenplay, the series should be considered "a work of fiction," the statement said.
FX will follow up prize-winning "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story," with "The Assassination of Gianni Versace," the cable network says.
"Versace" becomes the second entry in the anthology series from Ryan Murphy, "Katrina," about the hurricane and flood that devastated New Orleans, will follow as the third installment.
Production of "Versace" began in April for a debut in early 2018.
