'Glee' cast joyful over Globe nods
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The mood on the set was, appropriately, gleeful.
The musical-dramedy "Glee" got some serious Golden Globe love Tuesday, emerging with more nominations than any show. Among the Fox series' four nominations is Best Television Series — Comedy or Musical.
On the Paramount Studios lot, where "Glee" is filmed, the show's cast could be found Tuesday hugging and laughing after hearing the news.
"Amazing," said actor Corey Monteith, who plays the series' football hunk Finn Hudson. "It is kind of like it is like Christmas morning."
"The four best presents ever," added actor Kevin McHale.
In addition to the nod to the series, "Glee" received nominations for Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele, two Broadway veterans who are TV newcomers. Veteran stage and screen actress Jane Lynch also earned a bid for best supporting actress in a series, miniseries or movie.
"I slept through (the nominations announcement)," confessed Lynch. "But, I got up to six messages and went, 'Ah! I wonder if there is some good news for us?' And there was. My agent called me three times, and said, 'Why aren't you up?' So, yeah. I called my mom, and she said, 'The golden what?'"
Michele said she and her mother used to dress up just to watch awards shows at home. So, no surprise Michele was at a loss for words upon hearing of her nomination.
"I can't, I can't even believe it," said Michele, also a Tony nominee for "Spring Awakening." "My mother just said to me, 'When I get out of this shock, I will congratulate you properly.' I think when I snap out of this shock, I don't know when it is going to happen, but if someone here hears a scream somewhere in L.A. at any point, it is probably me finally realizing what actually is happening."
"Glee" creator Ryan Murphy already has a Golden Globe, for his drama series "Nip/Tuck," but said he's still excited about next month's Globe ceremony. "You know, it is like a high-school prom," he explained. "And I remember when I was in high school I was the president of the Meryl Streep fan club. So, when we won for Nip/Tuck, and I got up to accept it, there was Meryl Streep right in front of me. So, it always feels like a very fun evening. I think I will be wearing Tom Ford, maybe. I think. And I don't know who my date is going be. I'm open. I need some calls. I need some bribes."
In the meantime, Murphy and his cast are busy filming the second half of the first season of "Glee." New episodes of the series won't be unveiled until Spring 2010, including an all-Madonna episode, and an appearance by "Wicked" Tony winner Idina Menzel.
"Okay, listen. We had Kristen (Chenoweth, Menzel's "Wicked" costar), now Idina's coming," gushed actor Chris Colfer. "I don't . . . I can't even fathom that. I can't even talk about it. I am so, so excited. I just . . ."
"I think you just peed a little bit," joked actor Mark Salling.
"I did," Colfer replied. "I think I just did."
The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards is set for January 17.
