Glee edged out new ABC’s freshman comedy Modern Family for a Golden Globe win in the category of comedy or musical.
Excited cast members of the musical Fox series almost fell over themselves as they rushed the stage when the win was announced.
“Thank you, Hollywood Foreign Press and Barbra Streisand,” quipped creator Ryan Murphy. He praised studio and network executives who felt that a musical would work on network prime time and noted that “Glee” stressed the importance of arts education.
Murphy dedicated the win to “anybody and everybody who ever got a wedgie.”
Easily one of the best reviewed new shows of the current TV season with a regular audience of 8.7 million viewers, the musical dramedy struck a chord with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which passes out the Golden Globe Awards. The series landed a leading four nominations.
Also, Glee star Lea Michele, 22, has revealed that she would like pop star Justin Timberlake to have a cameo role in the show. The Broadway actress, who plays Rachel Berry, told MTV News at last night’s awards ceremony that she is a big fan of the star.
“You know, I am so on board with our writers. Whatever they put in front of me, I’m like, ‘Great!'” she explained.
“But I would love Justin Timberlake to come on the show… He’s an amazing comedic actor, as well as an incredible singer and dancer and that’s very Glee.”
She added: “I think that he and Matt could have a nice little dance-off – what do you think?”
Michele admitted that being at the Golden Globes wasn’t as overwhelming as she thought it would be. “It’s a lot smaller than I imagined. It’s very quaint, and I like that.”
Michele has also appeared on Third Watch and Guiding Light. She currently divides her time between New York City and Los Angeles.
