Chris Colfer’s big win for supporting actor on a TV comedy was emotional for the young actor, who used his acceptance speech not just to thank those important to him, but also give some words of support to anyone who has been bullied like his character on Glee.

Colfer began his speech with the usual round of thanks, including a big nod to Glee creator Ryan Murphy, who Colfer called his “fairy godfather.” Then, after thanking his castmates, the speech addressed bullying.

Thanking the show’s fans, Colfer said: “Most importantly, to all the amazing kids that watch our show and the kids that our show celebrates that are constantly told no by bullies in their school and they can’t be who they are … Well, screw that, kids.”

Colfer’s win came against a tough line-up of nominees, as he beat out TV veterans like Chris Noth and and David Strathairn.
