'Glee's' Chris Colfer Sends Message to Bullied Kids in Best Supporting Actor Globes Speech (VIDEO)

Chris Colfer, 'The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards'It was a big night for 'Glee,' with three wins at 'The 68th Annual Golden Globes' (Sun., 8PM on NBC). The first of these came in the supporting actor category, and there was perhaps nobody more surprised than winner Chris Colfer.

His role as Kurt Hummel on 'Glee' has grown to be one of the most powerful and poignant stories in the large ensemble, which has been emphasized by more screen-time in this second season for the 20-year old actor.

While he's already won a SAG and Teen Choice Award, this is the first major win of his career, and you could clearly see that he was both stunned and moved by the honor.

"I think I just dropped my heart between Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore," he said breathlessly upon reaching the podium. "So if anyone sees that, please give it back to me."

After the regular thanks to the cast and crew, Colfer gave a shout-out to all those kids that 'Glee' speaks for.

"To all the amazing kids who watch our show and the kids that our show celebrates," he said. "Who are constantly told 'No' by the people in their environments -- by bullies at school -- that they can't be who they are or have what they want because of who they are. Well, screw that, kids!"

'Glee' returns February 6 with a post-Super Bowl episode before settling back into its regular time slot on Tuesdays at 8PM ET.
