Colfer, who won for his portrayal of gay student Kurt Hummell, dedicated his win to kids who suffer from bullying:
“To all the amazing kids that watch our show, and the kids that our show celebrates who are constantly told ‘No’ by the people and 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!”
Co-star and out actress Jane Lynch won for Best Supporting Actress, in her role as Sue Sylvester in “Glee.” The series also won Best Comedy Series.
