Glee‘s Chris Colfer takes home the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in TV Series, Miniseries, or TV Movie. One small step for out homosexual actors, one giant leap for high school musicals. He says during his acceptance speech: “Most importantly, to all the amazing kids that watch our show, and the kids that our show celebrates, who are constantly told ‘no’ by the people and the environments, by bullies at school, that they can’t be who they are or have they want want because of who they are, well: screw that, kids.” He told reporters backstage, “I hate to say Cinder-fella. I feel like it tonight. I’ve watched the Golden Globes since I was an embryo. I won’t remember any of this. I kinda blacked out. I thought it was going to be Eric Stonestreet. I was rooting for him.” MORE: Annette Bening wins the Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical award for The Kids Are All Right; the film wins Best Comedy Or Musical. Glee wins Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical. (Backstage, Lynch says she, not Lea Michelle, is the diva of the show.) Recently engaged Jim Parons wins for Best Actor in TV Comedy or Musical for The Big Bang Theory, which he also won an Emmy for. Jane Lynch wins Best Supporting Actress in a TV Series, Mini-Series or Movie for Glee; she thanks her wife during her speech.
Yes, friends, this appears to be the gayest Golden Globes on record.
And of course, Ricky Gervais’ opening monologue wasn’t to be missed, not when there’s an anonymous shout out to some closeted Scientologists.
