Chris Colfer won the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a
Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series, or Motion Picture Made for
Television Sunday night, and in his speech he thanked Glee creator Ryan Murphy
for being his "fairy godfather" and took the opportunity to thank "all
the amazing kids that watch our show and who are constantly told no
by ... bullies at school and told they can't have what they want because
of who they are. Well, screw that."
During a pre-show interview on the Golden Globes red carpet, Colfer was asked which artists he'd like to see covered on the hit musical sitcom and expressed his desire for more Lady Gaga, said the electro-pop band Scissor Sisters "would be fun to do," and added that he's campaigning to have Sound of Music star Julie Andrews play the grandmother of his character, Kurt. Colfer previously told The Advocate that he appeared in a high school production of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic.
The actor admits he has been successful in the past, pushing for a "Time Warp" musical number that eventually became a full Rocky Horror Picture Show episode.
