Tuesday night's 'Glee' may be Chris Colfer's next Emmy submission

October 5, 2010 | 12:14 pm

Attention, Chris Colfer fans: Tune in to "Glee" Tuesday night to see "Grilled Cheesus" because Fancast's Matt Webb Mitovich says, "this episode belongs to Chris Colfer, who likely has staked his claim to a second Emmy nod."

Glee Chris Colfer TV news

Colfer recently lost the supporting comedy actor Emmy for the "Laryngitis" episode of "Glee" in which he belts out "Rose's Turn." Very dramatic submission in the comedy category. Often that's a good strategy, believe it or not, but he lost to Eric Stonestreet's comedic turn as a clown in the "Fizbo" episode of "Modern Family."

Tonight we see more of Colfer's drama chops. Mitovich tells Gold Derby about the "Glee" eppy: "Kurt's dad has a heart attack, is in bad condition. The episode as a whole takes a look at the question of God's existence. Kurt, being gay, is a non-believer, but the others compel him to find faith in something during this difficult time. There are also great moments with non-believer Sue Sylvester and her impaired sister."

re: "Kurt, being gay, is a non-believer,"

I'm a gay non-believer and even I find that statement offensive.

That kid who played "little Kurt" was perfect (even without a single line).

Colfer lost the Emmy using an overly dramatic episode. This is another overly dramatic episode -- there was no comedy in his performance, not that there should have been. The kid is a good actor, but his strength is not driving any comedy. He can do the drama and sarcastic one liners, but he is not a comedic actor.

The comedy genius of this episode was Cory Monteith as Finn. He deserves a lot of credit, but gets overlooked for the showier performers.

Chris Colfer is extremely talented. But if he wins an Emmy for this, I'll be very disappointed.

I haven't seen much of the show, but if Chris Colfer is the one who played the boy with the sick father, then, your statement is on the money...
That kid can act his butt off, he really nailed ALL of his scenes!

Just finished watching the episode and, wow, his performance really is Emmy worthy.

"Kurt, being gay, is a non-believer,"

What the he!! kind of statement is that, Mitovich. Get your head out.

"..being gay, is a non-believer..." Excuse me? Are you saying that gay people do not believe in God or a higher power? What an insulting thing to say when there are quite literally millions of GLBT people struggling to reconcile their faith and their orientation, gender, their very existence. Do you work for Westboro Baptist Church? If not, then why not? A gay man who died of AIDS led me to Christ. Many, many gay people have decided that their path is to be celibate Christians. Many more have searched deeply and come to the conclusion that they can be Christian and love the person they love regardless of the gender. Many transgendered people know that their soul is not the same gender that they appear to be. And there is everything in between.

What you said is deeply insulting to many heterosexual and homosexual and bisexual and asexual people who believe and have hope and discover that some how there is more to them than just their biology and there is more to them than just this life and that there is some greater order and higher power. People of many faiths and not just Christianity. I say this as a born-again Christian. "Fundamentals, not funamentalism." -- Me.

At it’s best Glee is fabulous fun – but the show also has a LOT of flaws…
