‘Glee’s’ Chris Colfer backstage at the Golden Globes

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Chris Colfer’s Golden Globe win last night for his performance as Kurt Hummel on ‘Glee’ was a real high point on a show that was often times way too mean spirited thanks to host Ricky Gervais.

In his speech (see video below), the 20-year-old Chris said: “To all the amazing kids that watch our show, and the kids that our show celebrates that are constantly told ‘no’ by the people and the environments, by bullies at school that they can’t be who they are or have what they want because of who they are, well (holds up award)…screw that kids!”

Backstage, Chris told the press that he was trying to hold back the tears.

“I have my big-boy pants on, so I am trying not to [cry],” he said. “It’s insane. I have been watching [the Globes] since I was in embryo.”
