Fans Divided By Lady Gaga's Golden Globes Win Over Kirsten Dunst

The popular musician claimed the prize for Best Performance By An Actress In A Mini-series Or Motion Picture Made For Television

Celebrated pop star and fledgling thespian Lady Gaga has pulled out a stunning victory at the 2016 Golden Globes, squeezing out veteran screen star and arguable pre-ceremony favourite Kirsten Dunst for the prize of Best Performance By An Actress In A Mini-series Or Motion Picture Made For Television.

Gaga was nominated for her work in the most recent season of American Horror StoryHotel, while Dunst got the nod for her role as out-of-her-depth stylist Peggy Blumquist in the acclaimed second season of FX's brilliant anthology series, Fargo. Fellow nominees included Sarah Hay (Flesh & Bone), Felicity Huffman (American Crime) and Queen Latifah (Bessie), who herself boasts a vocal army of supporters in the mix.

The result has seen an interesting dichotomy emerge on social media; namely, Gaga's Twitter mentions are presently uniformly gushing with praise for the newly awarded actress, while those focusing on Dunst appear to feel that she might have been robbed by someone with little claim to the "actress" title, much less the "best" component of things.

It's a heated issue, close to everyone's heart, apparently - but despite the mixed opinions on Gaga's win, it's pretty much unanimous that her encounter with Leonardo DiCaprio on the way to claim her prize won the night.
