Glee and Kids triumph at Golden Globes

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Hail to the Gleeks! Television's nerdiest singing crew, adored by fans around the world and apparently the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, out-belted its competition last weekend at the Golden Globe Awards, scooping up hardware for Best Series - Comedy and for two of its supporting players, Chris Colfer and Jane Lynch. In his short and inspiring acceptance speech, Colfer empowered the show's young audience members who were bullied or rejected for being who they are to simply 'screw it' and move forward. Lynch acknowledged her wife, Laura Embry, during her thank-yous and also the musical program's Gay creator, Ryan Murphy. This was the second consecutive Golden Globe for Glee in the Best Comedy category, adding to its Best Emmy win from last fall.

Next up for the popular TV series - the Gayest thing to hit the small tube since Solid Gold - is the Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 30. Lynch and Colfer are both nominated for Male and Female Actor (Comedy), respectively, and the entire cast competes for Best Ensemble - Comedy. And get ready for the big, bad Glee episode on Super Bowl Sunday with a performance of Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'!

Also victorious on Sunday night's glitzy ceremony was the Lesbian-themed movie The Kids Are All Right, earning Globes for Best Motion Picture - Comedy and one of its lead stars, Annette Bening. A shoo-in for an Oscar nomination, Bening cited that she was 'very proud to be part of this very special film about two women who are deeply in love and trying to keep their family together.' The major feature, released last summer, is a Best Picture contender going into the Academy Awards nominations on January 25 and it also competes at the upcoming Screen Actors Guild Awards at month's end. Incidentally, Bening's main threat in her quest for a first-time Oscar is Natalie Portman, who shares a girl-on-girl smooch with co-star Mila Kunis in the ballerina thriller Black Swan.

Colin Firth, who played a troubled Gay professor in the 2009 drama A Single Man, won for Best Actor-Drama, while Jim Parsons - who is the subject of conflicting reports on whether he's publicly outed himself and rumored boyfriend - added a Golden Globe to his statue shelf by taking home the award for Best Actor - Comedy Series.

Finally, industrial-electronic heartthrob Trent Reznor and co-composer Atticus Ross nabbed Best Original Score for The Social Network, mildly upsetting Hans Zimmer for his brilliant work on Inception. If Zimmer's soundtrack, also in the running for a Grammy, gets past the Academy's strict eligibility requirements (the Edith Piaf tune could disqualify it), then you'll likely see it win the Oscar.
