Glee’s ratings may not be what they used to be, but the show still has a knack for racking up plenty of awards show nominations, even five seasons in. Fresh off a slew of 2014 Teen Choice Award noms, we’re pleased to tell you Lea Michele (Rachel), Chris Colfer (Kurt), and Darren Criss (Blaine) have all been nominated for 2014 Young Hollywood Awards. Congrats, you guys!
Per Variety, Chris and Darren scored a joint nomination in the Best On-Screen Couple category, and even though we love seeing this pair together, we have to admit they’re facing some pretty stiff competition from TV and movie duos. Chris and Darren will face off against Mayim Bialik and Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars), and Shailene Woodley and Theo James (Divergent).
Of course we’d love to see Chris and Darren walk away with top honors, but, like we said, they’re up against some pretty dynamic pairs. We’re pulling for you guys!
Lastly, Lea snagged a nom as well, though hers actually has little to do with Glee. The 27-year-old actress/singer was nominated in the Coolest Crossover Artist category which, as you may have guessed, singles out those who were able to go from one artistic medium to another. Lea, of course, did just that with the release of her album, Louder, earlier this year.
Like Darren and Chris, Lea’s also facing some tough competition. The Glee starlet is nominated alongside Ariana Grande, Nick Jonas, Kate Upton, and Shaun White. That’s quite a talented crowd, but we have no doubt that Lea will be able to hold her own alongside the best of ‘em.
The 16th Annual Young Hollywood Awards will air for the second consecutive year on The CW at 8 p.m. ET on July 28. Kelly Osbourne is slated to host the ceremony in Los Angeles.
