In other "Glee" news, it’s also been announced that actress Anne Hathaway will be the next star to guest on the show, in a role she invented for herself – Kurt’s lesbian aunt.

Also at the Golden Globes, "The Kids Are Alright," a movie about a lesbian couple with two children who seeks out the sperm donor and biological father, took home some awards. It was recognized as the best comedy motion picture and Annette Bening, one half of the fictitious lesbian couple, took home the award for best female performance in a motion picture.
