One of the best new reality shows from last year, The Glee Project, is returning for a second season this summer. The series, which grants the winner of an arc on Glee, saw two victors from last year, Samuel Larsen and Damian McGinty, who both have since appeared on the Fox hit. Once again, Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy will evaluate the contestants along with the series casting director Robert Ulrich and choreographer/co-producer Zach Woodlee. Plus, vocal coach Nikki Anders will now officially join the judging panel.
This year, a new crop of singer/actor hopefuls are headed to the Oxygen series and EW has the EXCLUSIVE cast reveal. The Glee Project‘s inspiring 14 contestants includes a 24-year-old paralyzed from the waist down, a transgender 21-year-old, and another 24-year-old who’s been blind since the age of 9.

Does Glee stand a chance of getting any Emmy noms this year? Even the award bait On my way was so glaringly desperate. I personally do not think any character or arc is award worthy this year. Thank God it appears the critics are finally over this crapshow.

Certainly not in any of the major categories. I think the possibility of a series nomination is extremely low, especially with so many new series posing as real contenders. While the musical performances are the one thing that Glee hasn't entirely screwed up, the character development and the story archs have become so messy, confusing and contradictory - that it makes for tough viewing. If it didn't nab any writing or directing noms last year, it definitely won't be happening this year. Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison are officially off the awards radar considering they couldn't even get Golden Globe nominations this year, which is actually a bit of a shame for Michele because she continues to be the MVP in my eyes. As for Jane Lynch and Chris Colfer, they will have an extremely tough time getting into the race again. The only real chance that this show has of getting some recognition come Emmy night is if Neil Patrick Harris or Kristin Chenoweth make some sort of surprise guest appearance.
Tomygleeevenhas a chance tobe nominatedby sending TapeA: AsianF& TheFirst Time TapeB:Maffoff & Heart or next 8chapters TapeC: Onmy way&8nextchapter

Rivera and Michele deserves something but they won't be nominated. Jane Lynch has no material this season.
In my opinion :
Outstanding Comedy Series : Glee (Not sure at all. It's between Glee, Louie & TBBT) Outstanding Supporting Actor : Chris Colfer Outstanding Guest Actress : Dot Marie Jones, maybe Whoopi Goldberg. Outstanding Guest Actor : Matt Bomer, maybe Jeff Goldblum
I'm so sad for Rivera. Two years ago, with the material she has this year, she had been nominated.
Blaine's older brother, Cooper Anderson, comes to Lima to pay a little visit while the glee club members do a "senior ditch day" spending the day at an amusement park. Also, the fate of Quinn is revealed.
The show's definitely been better this season than last season, but that doesn't mean I think it'll get as many Emmy nominations. I don't think all hope is lost in the best comedy series race, though. They've produced some very strong episodes this year that, if sent on screeners, could generate the buzz to push them into best series and possibly get them writing and/or directing noms. I'd say Jane Lynch will be out, but I can't think of a strong candidate who takes her place. I think Chris Colfer will have a harder time. I'm probably just being partial, but I wouldn't count out Lea Michele either. She's been great this season, and with so many newer potential candidates, she may stand out more than she did last year.
I'm so excited for Matt Bomer on tonight's episode.
Interesting return. Some things worked, and some things didn't. Eric Stoltz did a nice job directing this episode. There was a certain energy to this one that seems to have been missing in some of the recent episodes. Maybe it was all of the senior ditch day scenes at the amusement park (though it's funny that these are "seniors" almost in their thirties, but whateves) or the musical numbers. Say what you will about "Glee" in general, but they at least get their musical numbers right (and compare it with "Smash" that's far more hit or miss in that regard). I didn't like how they handled Quinn's return. I was hoping for some immediate aftermath of the car wreck and hospital and the reactions to Rachel and Finn calling off the wedding, but everyone's back in school and Quinn's putting on a brave front to mask some potentially frightening realities. Sue being pregnant is so inane, but they're going full steam ahead with it now. Sad that her baby looks like it will be developmentally challenged, but Jane Lynch was pretty good here selling her excessively hormonal outbursts to the group and the more sentimental scenes later. And for once, NeNe didn't stink up the joint with one of her appearances (thx for that, Mr. Stoltz!). Samuel isn't making much of an impact, or Damian either for that matter. Lindsay is looking better and better as the one who should have won "TGF." The highlight here was Matt Bomer. He had a strong rapport with the ensemble, and his scenes opposite Darren Criss were moving when they needed to be. Bomer served the same purpose here as Neil Patrick Harris did. The outsider type with a connection to one of the group members, the splashy classic rock duet, some rivalry-type scenes, and an emotional resolution (though that awesome Gotye song did much of the work for them—can't wait for that performance this weekend). If one was Emmy-worthy, I don't see why the other one shouldn't be considered so too. Bomer doesn't nearly have the same name recognition factor as Harris, which will make his nod much more of an uphill battle unfortunately. The Duran Duran mash-up and "Somebody That I Use to Know" were both great numbers. "Fighter" got to be a bit too overwrought near the end (we get it Blaine, you're a "fighter"! no need to punch the screen to get that point across). I'm really hating the way they're dressing Blaine (Kurt by extension too for that matter). That natty 20s look is so odd-looking on Criss. I miss the Warblers' uniforms. Like "act and dress your age, please"! Pip is the same way with all of those damn bowties like he's straight out of "Newsies" or something. But anyway, the good outweighed the bad, and more of Matt Bomer in the future would be welcome (but not one Anderson Cooper joke in the entire episode? tsk, tsk, writers).
Grade for "Big Brother": B+
