Jan 17 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Along with an award for Best Television series in Comedy or Musical, Glee walked away with a couple of more awards last night at the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Jane Lynch also won an award for Glee with her win for Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a series, miniseries, or motion picture made for TV. She plays the “over the top” cheer leading coach Sue Sylvester on the show. Jane joked, “I am nothing if not falsely humble,” as she told of her desire to share the ward with the writer of the show who actually wrote all of her lines, but she added that she plans to keep the award with her, of course.

Chris Colfer accepted an award for the show with his award for best actor in a supporting role in a series, miniseries, or motion picture made for TV. Colfer was stunned when his name was called, and stated, “I think I just dropped my heart somewhere between Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore.” He received the award for his role as Kurt Hummel, a gay teen who is bullied in high school. His acceptance speech was very emotional as he spoke to “the kids that our show celebrates that are constantly told no by bullies in their school and they can’t be who they are..”

Laura Linney also won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a television series for her role in the ‘Showtime’ television show ‘The Big C’. Sadly ironic was the fact that Laura was not able to attend the Awards show to receive her award for her role as a woman who is dealing with terminal cancer, because her playwright father, Romulus Linney has just passed away after a battle with lung cancer. He was eighty years old.
