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.
