Jane Lynch's best supporting actress win for her character Sue Sylvester in "Glee" was one that, for the most part, was well received. Lynch's performance of the acerbic cheerleading coach carries every scene she's in, and the character is unlike any other on television. However, Sue Sylvester is at the end of the day, a massive bully. During a time when bullying has become an epidemic, does this bother Lynch in any way?

"I think the reasons that Sue became a bully are explained on the show," she said at the Fox after-party, with her Golden Globe not far from sight. "It's a product of the relationship she had with her mother, which was masterfully played by Carol Burnett."

On working with Burnett, Lynch said "she was an absolute dream," and insisted Sue's bullying was nothing to be worried about in the real world.
