9 of 24: Chris Colfer of 'Glee' on being nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy:

'There was almost more pressure this year because I was nominated last year. Last year everyone was kind of like, 'What? That's crazy that I was nominated.' So this year I think a lot of people were expecting me to get nominated, but I was not one of them; I honestly didn't think there was going to be room for me in the category this year. The category is so vast and a lot of my stuff is so dramatic on the show that I didn't think I was going to be included,' the actor said in a statement to TVLine.

This is Colfer's second Emmy nomination. The actor won a Golden Globe in 2011 for his role on the popular series. (Pictured: Chris Colfer in a promotional still for 'Glee') (Photo courtesy of Adam Rose / FOX)
