Chris Colfer Wins Golden Globe
Edited on Sun Jan-16-11 11:02 PM by davidinalameda
Golden Globe winner Chris Colfer wants a Scissor Sisters-themed episode of Glee and Oscar-winner Julie Andrews to guest star as his character's grandmother.

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, the electropop band Scissor Sisters "would be fun to do" and that he's campaigning to have Sound of Music star 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.

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 and in his speech 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."
