The American Horror Story creator revealed that he is thrilled by the Golden Globe nominations that the new show has received, including 'Best Drama Series' and 'Best Supporting Actress' for star Jessica Lange.
"I was so excited because I wasn't expecting either of those. Yeah I was really happy," Murphy told Entertainment Weekly.
He went on to joke that he will be bringing the show's main villain to the awards ceremony as his date.
"I'm taking Rubber Man as my date," he said. "My boyfriend is very upset. I should just have my boyfriend, David, dress up as Rubber Man."
American Horror Story star Dylan McDermott revealed that landing the lead role in the horror drama motivated him to get fit, adding that he wanted his body to look impressive on the FX thriller.
The season finale of American Horror Story airs next week on Wednesday (December 21) at 10pm on FX.
