Golden Globes voters love throwing the biggest party every year, so it’s key that they invite the hottest stars with the biggest names. Plus, since Newest = Best when it comes to voting members of the HFPA, singing sensation Gaga could win for her very first acting performance.

Gaga’s rivals for Best TV Movie/Limited Series Actress are Kirsten Dunst (“Fargo”), Sarah Hay (“Flesh and Bone”), Felicity Huffman (“American Crime”) and Queen Latifah (“Bessie”).

“AHS: Hotel” is also up for Best Limited Series, but it under-performed in getting some of its other scene-stealers nominated, including Kathy Bates and Sarah Paulson.

Last year’s winner Maggie Gyllenhaal (“The Honorable Woman”) pulled off a major upset over, among others, former “American Horror Story” headliner Jessica Lange, who was contending for her final season. Lange did win a Golden Globe in the catch-all Supporting Actress category for the show’s breakout first season, but could never prevail in the Lead race. Can Gaga?
