Naya Rivera Rises Above Teen Choice Award Loss, Congratulates Candice Accola on Her Win!

Who said Naya Rivera (Santana) can’t be the bigger person?

The newlywed may or may not get along with her Glee co-star Lea Michele (Rachel), but the actress was very gracious after losing the 2014 Teen Choice Award for Choice Scene Stealer. Naya was nominated alongside Sarah Hyland (Modern Family), Candice Accola (The Vampire Diaries), Eden Sher (The Middle), and Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory). Ultimately Candice took home the award at last Sunday’s ceremony in Los Angeles, and Naya was quick to congratulate her fellow actress on the honor.

“Congrats to @CandiceAccola for winning #TeenChoice TV Female Scene Stealer!” the Glee actress tweeted. And not wanting her fans to be upset over the loss, the 27-year-old added, “Thanks to everyone who voted... love you guys!”

Seeing as how Naya chose to be downgraded to a recurring guest star in Glee’s sixth and final season, we’re not sure she’ll have a chance to take home another Teen Choice Award before the series ends, but she doesn’t seem too bummed.

Naya and her new hubby, actor Ryan Dorsey, made a rare public appearance earlier this week when they were spotted at a private event hosted by PUMA at Hyde Lounge during the Justin Timberlake concert on August 12. Lea and her beau Matthew Paetz were also in attendance, but interestingly enough the pairs never crossed paths.

Are you surprised that Naya congratulated Candice on her 2014 Teen Choice Award win? Sound off below!
