‘Glee’ Poll: Will Chris Colfer be robbed at the Emmys again?

Let’s be honest: Chris Colfer was robbed at the Emmys last year. The “Glee” star gave a bravura performance in the episode he submitted to the Emmy jury deciding the race for best supporting comedy actor. It was “Laryngitis,” the one in which he sang his twist on “Rose’s Turn” from “Gypsy,” a musical performance that resulted in Tony Award victories for Tyne Daly, Angela Lansbury and Patti LuPone.

The “Laryngitis” episode of “Glee” also included lots of heartfelt scenes between Kurt and his dad discussing his sexual orientation. How could he possibly have lost?

Frankly, I don’t know. Usually, performances with lots of drama win in the comedy categories, but instead Eric Stonestreet got the last laugh as a clown in the “Fizbo” episode of “Modern Family.”

Colfer’s role grew so strongly on “Glee” this past TV season that there was even talk of him entering in the lead Emmy race, but wisely he’s remaining in supporting. Having more screen time over all will certainly bolster his new Emmy hopes. Another plus: Colfer recently won the Golden Globe for best supporting comedy actor.
