Glee's Chris Colfer still gets nervous on the red carpet

Chris Colfer is planning on taking his gran to the Emmys as his date.

The Glee star, who bagged a Best Supporting Actor nomination in the comedy category for his role as Kurt Hummel, will walk the red carpet with his grandma in tow.

"I'm taking my grandma, she's my date," he told reporters at the Los Angeles premiere of Glee: The 3D Concert Movie.

But Chris admitted the show's success has not helped to calm his fears about red carpet events.

"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," he revealed.

The actor's nomination is in a category dominated by Modern Family - he's up against four of the show's stars, as well as Two And A Half Men's Jon Cryer.

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
