While most awards season participants can't wait to hit Hollywood's A-List parties this time of year, Glee star Cory Monteith couldn't care less.

"I'm not a big fan of the after-parties – not at all," says Monteith, 28, who plays Finn Hudson the Golden Globe-nominated show. "I like to go to the [awards] show, see other people on shows, meet people and then call it a night."

It's not that Monteith, who attended Fox's Television Critics Association party at Villa Sorriso in Pasadena, Calif., on Tuesday, doesn't like to celebrate. It's just that he feels "like every day is kind of a celebration."

"Being able to [be on set with my costars]," Monteith says, "makes every day something to be proud of."

The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Ricky Gervais, will air live Jan. 16 on NBC at 5 p.m. from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
