Glee's Chris Colfer says he believes either Ty Burrell or Ed O'Neill of Modern Family will best him for an Emmy.

Colfer is one of the three men nominated for an Emmy in the supporting comedy actor category who plays a gay man on television. The other two are Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet, who play gay couple Mitchell Pritchett and Cameron Tucker on the ABC Wednesday night sitcom Modern Family.

Colfer and Ferguson are also openly gay.

The three will compete against Modern Family co-stars Ty Burrell and Ed O'Neill and Two and Half Men's Jon Cryer.

When asked about his chances of taking home the statue, Colfer, who plays gay student Kurt Hummel on the Fox musical-comedy Glee, said he would pick either Burrell or O'Neill to win.

“I think, for me, I think Ty is a great guy,” he told the Huffington Post. “They're all fantastic guys. I think Ty deserves it, but then again I think Ed has been working so long that he's long overdue for one.”
