Exclusive First Look: Emmy Host Jane Lynch Gets Carried Away!

Want further proof that Jane Lynch will be hosting next month’s Emmy Awards as herself and not in character as Sue Sylvester? Look no further than Fox’s official poster for the Sept. 18 ceremony, which features the Glee superstar ditching her alter ego’s trademark track suit in favor of an ultra-chic red gown.

Sue wouldn’t be caught dead wearing something so glamorous.

Glee Exclusive: Look Who’s Enrolling at McKinley High!

I’m guessing McKinley High’s dictatress also wouldn’t take kindly to being manhandled by a bunch of strangers who are wearing skimpy shorts and dipped in gold body paint. Lynch, however, appears more than game.

Thoughts? Is this some award-worthy key art? Hit the comments!

    But i still want Sue Sylvester make one appearence

  2. Linda says:

    I love Jane Lynch, but photoshop much?

  3. J says:

    why would anyone assume she would host the entire thing as sue?

    • danyelle says:

      You don’t get out into pop culture much, do you? She is “always” Sue, the same way the Artie kid sings in the wheelchair in concerts — even though he can walk.

      • Captain says:

        Yes but that’s because the actors perform the concert in-character. Kevin McHale wouldn’t host the Emmys in a wheel chair.

  4. BRETT says:

    Love her as well, but I would have loved to have seen her real arms.

  5. Meg says:

    I wouldn’t mind being manhandled by a bunch of men in short-shorts.

  6. Ash says:

    Jane’s so funny, I’ll actually watch the Emmy’s this year. For all the Glee people nominated ;o)

  7. Scott says:

    LOVE this ad. So fun and creative! She is going to rock the Emmys!!

  8. Jennifer says:

    I LOVE Jane Lynch! I’m happy to see her not sticking to the typcsting, though I love Sue too. Jane is a talented entertainer and the many things she’s done in her career have been varied and terrific.

  9. Steven says:

    I’m glad we won’t be seeing Sue. I can’t stand that character even though I LOVE Jane! She was amazing in Party Down.

  10. Lisa Jobin-Cardozo says:

    Oh, dear Sue, you’re such a natural and a GREAT actress! Wow! You’re the person people hate to LOVE. Would miss a great piece if you weren’t there. Keep up the good work, girl! ♥ U!

  11. Lisa Jobin-Cardozo says:

    Oh, by the way, I ♥ all of yas because each one of you is so UNIQUE!

  12. Debra says:

    would like to see the Emmys being daring and true and have Jane hoisted by a bunch of amazons

  13. Stefanie says:

    I don’t think she’s being “manhandled” per se; but I do think she’d probably personally like to be held up by a bunch of hot women instead.

    Super excited that JL’s hosting – she’s awesome, especially outside of Glee.

  14. Juan says:

    I think those guys in the photo should have had golden bald caps.

    or they could have just photoshopped them to look as if they were. >.>

  15. fish! says:

    What would be more awesome is if they went meta and have her appear as Charlie’s shrink or Sue, but in a self-referential way! :D Right?

  16. william onyango says:

    sue is original let her wear anything.she would look fine.love your style sue!!

  17. mcat says:

    Looks like a poster for some sort of Aryan club.

  18. Bob says:

    Can’t wait for the day that Glee dies (and it will, sooner rather than later).

  19. Scoober says:

    Am I the only one who can’t help but notice the guys’ crotches? My oh my. Ahem…

    Anyway, excited to watch Jane host the globes. Its gonna be epic!

  20. jamie calarut says:

    I. Love. Jane. Lynch. That’s all.

  21. Christie says:

    Jane is so awesome. I think this is going to be another great ceremony–they’ve had good hosts the past few years (Neil Patrick Harris and Jimmy Fallon), and I have no doubt she’ll keep the tradition going.

    I hope they have an intro as good as last years… preferably one that includes Joel McHale. I’m biased.
