Darren Criss Scores Emmy Nomination for “This Time”

Emmy nominee Darren CrissThe 67th Emmy Nominations were announced last Thursday and Darren Criss, best known as Blaine on Fox’s musical hit Glee, earned a nomination – but not for his role on screen. The 28-year-old actor and singer proved to those unfamiliar with his work with Team StarKid that he’s also a significant threat as a composer and songwriter in Glee‘s final season. Criss composed a swan song for Lea Michele’s character, Rachel Berry, for the final episode of Glee‘s six-season run. “This Time,” the second song that Criss wrote for Glee, has earned him an Emmy nomination for outstanding original music and lyrics.

Congratulations to all who were nominated, and tune in to Fox on Sunday, September 20 at 8 pm to see who will take home the prize.
