Lady Gaga can now add Golden Globe winner to her resume.

The worldwide superstar took away the statue for best actress in a limited-series or TV movie for her role as The Countess in “American Horror Story: Hotel.”

She was up against Kirsten Dunst (“Fargo”), Sarah Hay (“Flesh & Bone”), Felicity Huffman (“American Crime”) and Queen Latifah (“Bessie”).

“I feel like Cher in that John Patrick Shanley movie ‘Moonstruck,’ Gaga said on stage during her acceptance speech. “This is one of the greatest moments of my life.”

Appearing to be genuinely surprised and taken aback, the musical phenomenon thanked each and every one of her cast members, plus “American Horror Story” creator Ryan Murphy and her family.

Through tears, Gaga revealed,” I wanted to be an actress before I wanted to be a singer — but music worked out first.”

Backstage, Gaga told press about her “AHS” character for which she earned her award. “For many people, darkness is just that, they see it as a bleak, empty space. For me darkness is an expression of art, you can create things that are so beautiful out of something sad,” she said, adding that working on the show “was exhilarating, liberating. I would leave the set every day in tears, just full of relief. The countess is evil, she’s not a goodwilled person, but after 100 years she never gave up, no matter what she went through. You will fail in this business, the true test is whether you can get back up. I love the art of darkness.”

The winner of six Grammys, Gaga’s acting credits include “Machete Kills,” “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” and “Men in Black 3.” Her first role was “girl at swimming pool #2” in 2001 in “The Sopranos.”

“American Horror Story” was also nominated for best TV movie or limited-series, but lost out to “Wolf Hall.”
