Jane Lynch: Emmys 2011 Host!

It’s official – Jane Lynch is hosting the 2011 Emmys!

“I am tickled pink to be hosting the Primetime Emmys. I’m looking forward to singing, dancing and sporting my finest tracksuit,” the 50-year-old Glee star said in a statement.

Jane was my first – and only – choice as the host for this year’s Primetime Emmys, and I am glad she said ‘yes,’” said executive producer Mark Burnett. “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.”

The 2011 Emmys airs live from Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday, September 18, on Fox.

ARE YOU EXCITED to see Jane Lynch host this year’s Emmys?

I have enjoyed Jane Lynch’s work from the awesome Christopher Guest movies …her TV roles and other great indie films.

I don’t watch Glee—those kids bug me—but I love her!

This is a good move having her host. She appears capable.

Ellen ROCKED the Emmys when she hosted years ago. Hopefully the Oscar folks will take this cue and let Jon Stewart host OSCARS next year.

They’re just copying the Oscars by making a nominee the host.

On second thoughts, they did have Neil Patrick Harris as a host a few years back. Scrap what I said.
