Actor Chris Colfer, who plays gay student Kurt Hummel on the Fox musical-comedy Glee, is unsure why he was nominated for an Emmy in the comedy category.

Speaking with TVLine's Michael Ausiello, Colfer said he loved Kurt's journey in season two.

“I loved it,” Colfer said. “His journey completely surpassed last year. Last year was all about him accepting who he was. And season 2 was more about everyone else accepting him for who he was. I couldn’t be prouder and happier to be playing this character. He’s so inspirational to everyone, myself included.”

Kurt, however, continued to be bullied this year by closeted football player Dave Karofsky (played by Max Adler). Colfer agreed that Hummel's storyline during both seasons was more drama than comedy.

“It’s funny when I have nominations in best supporting actor in a comedy and I’m never funny,” Colfer said of his 2010 Emmy nomination. “People I’m usually nominated with are all pranksters and jokers, and I am not funny. I cry in every episode.”

Nominations for the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced on July 14. The show, to be hosted by Glee co-star Jane Lynch, will take place on September 18 and televised on Fox.
