Jane Lynch Talks About Hosting the 2011 Emmy Awards
By Keertana Sastry September 07, 2011
She might play a mean-spirited cheer-leading coach on the hit series Glee, but the real-life Jane Lynch is a gracious hostess with the mostess. The actress will be emceeing the 2011 Emmy Awards on Fox on Sept. 18 at 8 PM ET. We chatted with Lynch about the sensational show, her many wardrobe changes, and what tips her Glee alter-ego would give her.
Last year at the Emmys, one of the big hits was the opening number with you and Jimmy Fallon and the whole Glee gang. At this point, are you able to confirm any sort of follow up to that in your version of the Emmys?
Wondering if you’ve had any input from previous Emmy hosts regarding what you can expect and if they gave you any hosting tips?
If Sue Sylvester were to give you advice on hosting the gig, what would her tips be?
Who’s helping you with your material for the telecast?
Can you just tell me if there are any changes in the way the awards are presented?
Is there any aspect of hosting the show that particularly concerns you going in?
What concerns me is that I want it to be interesting and funny and also serve the purpose of the show, which is to honor television and people in it. But the little bites that we get to do something fun and funny, I feel responsible for making them fun and entertaining.
You’re nominated yourself. Do you think that’s going to affect your nerves on that night?
And if you had to bet your house on something, who do you think is definitely going to win something this year?
What is it that you think makes for a good host?
Are you going to see you in a multitude of wardrobe changes throughout the ceremony?
I was wondering when you were young were you an awards show type of person? When you were a kid did you watch things like the Oscars, and Emmys, and Grammys? Did you find it exciting? Or were you the type of kid who just never would’ve watched any of that stuff?
Could you give us one good reason why Sue Sylvester would be a better Emmys host than Jane Lynch, and then one good reason why Jane Lynch would be a better Emmys host than Sue Sylvester?
