Chris Colfer dedicated his Golden Globe win for his performance on the Fox musical-comedy Glee to troubled gay teens.

In accepting his award Sunday night, Colfer thanked Glee creator Ryan Murphy “for basically being my fairy godfather” and “Everybody at Fox, our amazing crew, who keep us sane and our very talented cast – you guys deserve this as much as I do.”

Before he left the podium, Colfer, who is gay and plays a bullied gay teen on the show, added: “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,” Colfer said.

Also nominated in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television were Scott Caan, Eric Stonestreet, David Strathairn and Chris North.
