Television gay faves scored big Tuesday as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees for its 2011 Golden Globe Awards.

Gay-inclusive television shows Glee and Modern Family will compete in the Best Television Series – Comedy or Musical category.

In its sophomore outing, the Fox musical-comedy has become one of the most gay-inclusive shows on television. The show now features three very distinct gay characters. Max Adler's Dave Karofsky has stepped up his bullying of openly gay McKinley High student Kurt Hummel, played by Chris Colfer. But Karofsky turns out to be a closet case. On the other end of the spectrum is out-and-proud student Blaine, played by Darren Criss.

Modern Family includes a gay couple, played by Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who are raising an adopted daughter.

Stonestreet and Colfer have been nominated in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television category.

Openly gay Jane Lynch has a shot at taking home another trophy. The Emmy-winning actress plays sharp-tongued coach Sue Sylvester on Glee.
