Assassination of Gianni Versace: Princess Diana makes shock appearance in explosive finale

Switching to the priest, Antonio could be seen painfully struggling with his feelings towards the Catholic Church having been shunned for his gay relationship with Gianni.

“The loss of Gianni Versace has been felt around the world, but let’s not forget the man himself and his family,” the priest said. “His older brother Santo, his younger sister Donatella, their love for him was incomparable to these people, those closest to him, his loved ones.”

Pointedly missing out Antonio, the priest left Gianni’s lover even more devastated at his long-time partner’s funeral.

The inclusion of Diana was even more poignant given she died only a month later than Gianni in a horrific car accident in Paris, France.

It wasn’t the first time she appeared on the series, as the crime thriller’s opening episode slotted in a scene of Gianni holding a gossip magazine which featured the Princess on the front cover.

Daniel Minahan (‘Assassination of Gianni Versace’ director/producer): ‘I felt so strongly about this material …

Daniel Minahan received his first Emmy nomination last year, as an executive producer of Best Drama Series nominee “House of Cards,” but he forfeited his position as the in-house director of that Netflix political thriller, now going into its final season, to be lead director on “The Assassination of Gianni Versace.” “I felt so strongly about this material,” Minahan explains in an interview with Gold Derby (watch the exclusive video above).

“We touched on really important topics about what it was like to live in that time and how these people were all impacted by this one guy’s actions,” Minahan says about the 1990s-set second season of the true crime anthology series “American Crime Story” on FX from Ryan Murphy. Originally subtitled “Versace/Cunanan,” the ultimate subtitle “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” eschews explicit reference to its main character, a serial killer played by “Glee” actor Darren Criss.

Emmy spotlight: Judith Light in ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace …

Judith Light makes only two appearances in FX’s “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.” But boy, does she make an impact, especially in the season’s third episode, giving what Joe Reid (Decider) called “one of the all-time best single-episode performances in a Ryan Murphy series.” It’s a performance that deserves to be recognized at this year’s Emmys, and could bring the veteran Tony and Daytime Emmy-winning actress an overdue first win at the Primetime ceremony.

In the season’s third episode, “A Random Killing,” Light plays Marilyn Miglin, a high-profile cosmetics mogul whose husband Lee (Mike Farrell), a prominent developer and philanthropist, was brutally murdered by Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss) in the months leading up to Cunanan murdering famed designer Gianni Versace (Edgar Ramirez). The Miglins were well-known Chicago socialites, and their marriage is portrayed as one of deep love and mutual respect. However,
