Chris Colfer Reacts to Emmy Nomination, Glee Departure

at . Comments

It's a weird day for Chris Colfer. He awoke to news that he's an Emmy nominee - and also to the fact that he'll be departing the show that earned him that distinction after the upcoming season.

Colfer responded to both announcements in an interview with Michael Ausiello, while also maybe, possibly, sort of teasing a spin-off for Kurt and Rachel.

A Kurt Solo

On the nomination: I honestly didn’t think there was going to be room for me in the category [because the list of potential nominees] is so vast and a lot of my stuff is so dramatic [rather than comedic] on the show.

On Ryan Murphy's decision to graduate Kurt, Rachel and Finn: It’s definitely not my choice. But I completely understand that it works for the integrity of the show. One of the things that I love about Glee is, despite characters breaking into song in the middle of the hallway, it was very real to me. It always seemed like a very real high school environment. And I think by having some characters graduate, they’ll continue having that element.

Might there be a spin-off? Visit TV Line for the full interview, but Colfer uttered an intriguing response to the rumor: There hasn’t been anything official yet.

Glee Quotes

I had sex with you because you got me drunk on wine coolers and I felt fat that day. But it was a mistake.

Quinn [to Puck]

We met right here. I took this man's hand and we ran down that hallway. Those of you who know me know I'm not in the habit of taking the hands of people I've never met before, but I think that my soul knew something that my body and my mind didn't know yet. It knew that our hands were meant to hold each other, fearlessly and forever. Which is why it's never really felt like I've been getting to know you. It's always felt like I was remembering you from something. As if in every lifetime that you and I have ever lived we've chosen to come back and find each other and fall in love all over again, over and over, for all eternity. And I just feel so lucky that I found you so soon in this lifetime because all I want to do, all I've ever wanted to do, is spend my life loving you. So, Kurt Hummel, my amazing friend, my one true love, will you marry me?
