Chris Colfer to take his gran to the Emmys

Written by . Published: August 16 2011

Chris Colfer is snubbing a chance to take a glamorous date to this year's (11) Emmys - the nominated Glee star will walk the red carpet with his grandmother.

Colfer is nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Kurt Hummel in the hit series at the prizegiving next month (Sep11), and his escort for the evening will be his grandmother.

He confirms, "She's my date."

And despite the show's success, Colfer admits he still gets nervous stepping onto the red carpet, adding: "You never get used to it, I was anxious the very first time I stepped out onto a red carpet and people were screaming at you, and I'm just as anxious now."
