To quote one Miss Emma Pillsbury, “Yay Glee!” The Fox comedy took home two awards during the 2014 People’s Choice Awards on January 8. That really is awesome, though admittedly not quite as awesome as it could be. Glee was nominated for a total of eight awards, which means they actually lost out on a lot more than they won.
The night’s big winners were the actors behind our favorite NYC trio: Chris Colfer (Kurt), Lea Michele (Rachel) and Naya Rivera (Santana). Chris took home the award for Favorite Comedic TV Actor, while Lea and Naya get to co-own the award for Favorite TV Gal Pals. In short, Santana Lopez + Rachel Berry = Pezberry FTW!
Lea and her co-star Jane Lynch (Sue) were up for Favorite TV Comedy actress, but both lost out to newlywed Kaley Cuoco of The Big Bang Theory. And since Darren Criss (Blaine) was up against Chris Colfer for Favorite Comedic TV Actor, Chris’s win means that Darren went home empty-handed.
In another loss, D and co-star Chord Overstreet (Sam) lost out to Supernatural’s Sam, Dean, and Castiel in the category of Favorite TV Bromance. How very not BLAM-tastic. In favorite Network TV Comedy, Glee lost out to The Big Bang Theory.
Lea didn’t attend the show, but she did take a moment to tweet fans and thank them for their support. Naya was present, showing off her newly-blonde locks, and later sent a series of tweets thanking fans.
Congrats to Glee’s reigning three on their big wins!
