Chris Colfer Wins A Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor

Tonight 20-year-old Chris Colfer was up for Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television.

The kid scored one for the team, winning out over Scott Caan (Hawaii Five-0), Chris Noth (The Good Wife), David Straithairn (Temple Grandin), Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family).

What struck me as his name was announced and he made his way to the stage – how honestly overjoyed the audience seemed to be that he won. It wasn't just polite clapping. Clearly a lot of the people in the room were rooting for him. Not the least of which were his castmates. Heather Morris, Jane Lynch, Lea Michele, Jayma Mays and Mathew Morrison could all be seen tearing up during his acceptance speech.

Speaking of which, here's what Colfer had to say...

"I think I just dropped my heart between Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore. So if anyone sees that

please give it back to me."

"Thank you so much Hollywood Foreign Press. I have to thank Ryan Murphy for basically being my fairy godfather... everybody at

FOX, Robert Ulrich for submitting me

to the show when there was nothing to submit me for, our amazing, amazing,

amazing crew who keep us sane during the crazy times, and our very talented cast

- you guys deserve this as much as I do."

"But 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 in their environments, by

bullies at school that they can't be who they are or have what they want

because of who they are. Well, screw that, kids!"
