  2. Straight mom moved to tears that Chris won! When my 15 year old asked why I told her when I was her age this would not have been possible. She doesn't get what the big deal is which means I did my job right. She sees Chris as a actor, not a gay actor.

  3. Give the poor kid a break. He is 20 years old and no matter how polished he comes across at times in interviews, this must be completely overwhelming for him. Why is it not possible for people on this board, every so often, just to celebrate when one of the good ones wins?

  7. And yet NBC cut the shot of Jane Lynch kissing her wife, and kept the camera firmly on the co-presenters, making her the only acting winner so far who didn't get a reaction shot.

  8. "Screw that" is an obscene expression? Seriously are you a 1950s housewife? Or maybe a closeted Baptist choir director? The kid wins a major award and has the quality of character and presence of mind to use that moment to say something really inspiring and meaningful rather than massage his own ego. And what you focus on "screw that?"

    On another note, Chris Colfer consistently impresses me as a great role model for gay youth, and maybe his gay elders as well.

  9. Get a life, Matt/ That was not "obscene."

  12. Fabulous. And he was genuinely surprised.

  13. Sorry, I don`t like Chris.
    I don`t think he will get other roles than playing the gay guy. And I do not understand why many are impressed with him. It is not that he is that good actor.It seems that many people like him because they have sympathy with him - not because of his skills.

  14. In the LGBT-related wins, Andy, you forgot to include Jim Parsons winning a Golden Globe as well... ;-)

  15. Great. Wonderful. Bravo.

    Great message for young people - be your dreams. Dismiss bullies and religious beliefs.

  16. Obscene expressions are amazing.

  17. Colfer is not a good actor. I'm very surprised he won.

    Consider this: who remember Sean Hayes? Seemed like he won some awards and now can't get arrested. Why? He's a bad, one-note actor who can only play gay.

  18. I cried when he won b/c I was just as shocked as he was, he so deserves it.

  19. Nicely done! You ROCK Chris!

  20. Chris, if you're reading this, please ignore the sour pusses who missed their own star turn and can't stand anyone else's success.

  21. Obscene expressions rock.

    Colfer didn't win an award for being a great actor -- he won an award for playing a particular role on a particular show. Good for him.

  22. yay!!!

  23. I think Darren Criss does a much better job playing a more realistic and RELATABLE Gay character on Glee and I rather see him win recognition for that.

    Oh, wait. He's straight. What a shock.

  24. @Clifw, I thought Jane during her winning speech said her wife was at home taking care of the kids?

  25. I just LOVE young people saying "screw that" to homophobia.
    Sometimes it seem it is bad, but our young people are showing that there is HOPE for the future. :-)
