Lea Michele Dedicates Her Teen Choice Award To Cory Monteith

August 12, 2013 / Posted by:

Lea Michele won Best Actress in a Comedy at the Teen Choice Awards yesterday and while accepting her surfboard trophy, she thanked Glee’s fans for hugging her heart and she said a few nice words about her boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith, who died of an alcohol and heroin overdose about four weeks ago. While Kevin McHale honored Mickey Mouse and Justin Bieber by wearing black shorts with black tights (that look is not okay), Lea honored Cory by saying:

“Thank you, guys. Thank you. I just wanted to be here today to personally thank all of you and tell everyone out there how much all of your love and support has meant to me over these very past difficult few weeks. Thank you. Not that I had any doubt before, but you guys are most certainly the greatest fans in the world. And I wanted to dedicate this award to Cory. For all of you out there who loved and admired Cory as much as I did, I promise that with your love we’re gonna get through this together. He was very special to me, and also to the world. And we were very lucky to witness his incredible talent, his handsome smile and his beautiful, beautiful heart. So whether you knew him personally or just as Finn Hudson, Cory reached out, and he became a part of all of our hearts and that’s where he’ll stay forever. So thank you guys so much. Thank you.”

And here’s the video of Lea’s speech:

I always get the Teen Choice Awards confused with the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards. I guess teens and kids are totally different and they each get their own choices. So while I was watching this, I kept thinking to myself, “Oh God, they’re totally going to slime her at the end.
