Holy Glee coup!
On a night where many (most?!) predicted a Modern Family win, Ryan Murphy/Ian Brenna/Brad Falchuk's fan-favorite Fox series took home the big bazooka of a Golden Globe: Best Comedy (on top of supporting-acting wins for Jane Lynch and—bazinga alert!—Chris Colfer, who beat out Eric Stonestreet).
Kick-ass surprise? Outrage? Sign of the apocalypse? While you consider that weighty Q (and before we dart out to the after parties), here's our rapid-fire roundup of scoop we've gotten so far tonight from Glee's Lea Michele and Jayma Mays, Big Bang Theory's Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting and more…
Lea Michele on Finn and Rachel: "We're broken up. I'm devastated." And coming up ahead? "She's definitely single right now." Lea says that despite her earlier tease to me that something big happens between Finn and Rachel during the Valentine's episode, "Finn and Rachel are broken up for the Valentine's Day episode." Hmmm! The silver lining? For you hoping for some legitimate friendship storylines for Rachel, Lea teases "[Rachel's] trying to enjoy the single life. Kurt and Mercedes are helping her get through it."
Jayma Mays on the Will/Emma/Carl Love Triangle: "Emma's married now and she's starting to get a little better. With her OCD and her germaphobic issues she's doing a little bit better. She's loosening up. She met the dentist Dr. Carl and he's spicing her life up a little bit and she's willing to get a little messy." When asked if fans should shelve their hope for Will and Emma for the time being, Jayma says: "I think that they probably should. I love that the hope is still there. Let's keep the hope [for an eventual reunion] but for now, let's let her get some John Stamos and get rid of tooth decay."
Jenna Ushkowitz on Artie/Tina/Mike: "I don't want to give too much away but Tina gets to sing and it's for Mike. Tina and Mike have actually gotten to live out a relationship so I'm really happy about that and you'll see some loners couple up."
The Glee Romance Scoop You Really Need to Know: Cory Monteith is single in real life, ladies! He said it with his own lips, and asked if we could help him out by finding him a few potential dates. Anyone game?
Big Bang Theory's Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco and Chuck Lorre on Penny/Leonard vs. Penny/Sheldon: Penny "has" to end up with Leonard, Johnny says. "She can't end up with Sheldon—that would be the end of the show!" Kaley has a different take: "I want Justin Timberlake playing my boyfriend on the show. That's what I'd prefer. Because Johnny Galecki just did a movie with him and I think, why don't you just bring him on the set?" Um, done and done, right? And bossman Chuck Lorre says this of the Lenny v Shenny debate: "I got to be honest with you, I love that we get to alternate back and forth because they team up so differently. Each one of the characters has a different dynamic when you pair them off with someone else. That gives us lots of options as writers. There's not a favorite aspect to it as much as I know. We have the depth to go for another few years because we have a lot of stories because the characters are all good in whatever configuration. They all work."
Johnny Galecki on the news he's coming to Entourage: "I play a version of myself. I've talked to Doug Ellin about—we want to make it as 180-degree difference from Leonard on The Big Bang Theory as possible so It might be a little bit of a brawl and he has like an infatuation for the Sloan character…I really just want to beat up Kevin Connelly!" Says costar and former real-life love Kaley: "I think it's awesome because [Johnny's] a total douchebag. No, it's a joke. He's the best. I think it's brilliant, I think it's going to be great."
Congrats to Glee and Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons, who won Best Actor, Comedy Series! (And yes, Modern Family fans, we too feel your pain. But that Emmy win helps, doesn't it?)
