#Gchattin’ Glee: Chris Colfer Wins Golden Globe!

January 18th, 2011 § 1 comment


Liz,

STOP the freaking presses!!!

The 2011 Golden Globes aired last night (I know, I know…who cares, right?).  Well, let me tell you! It was a great night for Glee! The show racked up, taking home three awards including:

Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series, or Motion Picture Made for TelevisionJane Lynch for Sue Sylvester

Best Television SeriesComedy or Musical

AND……

 Chris Colfer won Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television for his portrayal of Kurt Hummel.

Oh my! I’m so happy for him. Even though I’ve been super critical of Glee this season, I can’t deny that for kids out there struggling to find, express, love and be themselves, the show is a reminder that they are not in it alone; and, to never stop doing what you love. Chris Colfer made Kurt’s pain, loneliness, and fear real this season (in spite of the occasional sucky writing). He also had quite a few bad ass solos.

It is rare to see an openly gay young person on television, especially one who we see struggle with owning his identity and doing so, in a variety of settings (school, home, in friendships, and relationships). This character is important to television and Colfer, as a young openly gay actor (and awesome individual), is important to Hollywood.

Congrats to Chris Colfer and the Glee family!

P.S. You KNOW Lea Michele is in a corner somewhere pouting because she didn’t take home one of her own..but that’s another post for another day!

    girl…I hadn't seen that clip (I missed the whole show but read up on who won) and that was amazing. They were all crying (even Lea!). He really does own that role. Woot!
