Jane Lynch Will Host 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

     June 2, 2011


She’s been sailing smoothly on television as ruthless, insulting coach Sue Sylvester on Glee, and now Fox has decided that her talents are exactly right to spice up an awards ceremony as host of the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 18th. Standard publicity fluff comes from executive producer Mark Burnett who says, “Jane was my first – and only – choice as the host for this year’s Primetime Emmys, and I am glad she said ‘yes.’ She has incredible comedic timing, and is a charismatic, talented actress whose energy leaps off the screen and stage. I am thrilled and excited to have her as our host.” Of course, considering her work outside of Glee in other series like Party Down and films like The 40-Year Old Virgin, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind and more recently Paul, Lynch is the perfect choice to host the awards ceremony and make the long telecast that much more tolerable. Nominations for the Emmys will hit on Thursday, July 14th, so stay tuned.
