‘Glee’ Racks Up Three Wins at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards
The 2011 Teen Choice Awards were a big night for the cast and crew of 'Glee,' and the show and a few of its stars won a total of three awards. For the second year in a row, 'Glee' won the award for Choice TV Comedy. Also picking up awards were 'Glee' actors Cory Monteith for Choice TV Actor and Darren Criss for Choice TV Breakout Star.
Seven members of the 'Glee' cast were at the awards show to accept the surfboard awards. Ashley Fink, Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Chord Overstreet, Darren Criss, Harry Shum Jr. and Jenna Ushkowitz emerged from backstage after their introduction. Monteith spoke first, saying, "Thank you guys so much this is because of you," before thanking Ryan Murphy, FOX, and everyone else who made the show possible. Criss stepped up to the mic next, saying, "I'm glad I wore a tie! Thank you to the writers of glee for giving me a break … Thanks to the fans for letting me break out."
After their acceptance speech, the 'Glee' cast announced that they brought along a special clip from the upcoming 'Glee: The 3D Concert Movie.' As the clip began, the stars of the musical show can be heard singing My Chemical Romance's hit 'Sing.' Several little clips rolled throughout the preview, like Kurt asking, "You know what's better than Kurt and Blaine? Kurt and Blaine in 3D!" A very serious Brittany also said, "I wanna be a Warbler very bad and I would potentially shave my hair off if I could be a Warbler." The clip closed perfectly with Blaine saying, "The best part has been each other."
Congrats to all of the 'Glee' winners! To see more of your favorite TV singers, be sure to get tickets to 'Glee: The 3D Concert Movie,' which opens for just two weeks on Aug. 12.
