Not only did Glee win last night’s Golden Globe for Best Television Series Comedy or Musical (surprise, it’s both), but the show’s two gays also walked away with awards. Jane Lynch won for best supporting television actress and Chris Colfer was honored as best supporting television actor. After thanking the Hollywood Foreign Press and show-creator Ryan Murphy, Colfer sent a message to Glee‘s gay fans:
“But mostly importantly [a thank you] to all the amazing kids that watch our show and that our show celebrates and are constantly told ‘no’ [by] people and environments and bullies at school, that they can’t be who they are or can’t have what they want because of who they are. Screw that, kids.”
After the jump, watch Colfer take questions post-win in the press room.
