Jane Lynch is set to become the first female host of the DGA Awards at its 66th annual ceremony on Jan. 25 in Los Angeles.
“We are thrilled to welcome Jane Lynch as host of the DGA Awards for the very first time,” said DGA President Paris Barclay (who has directed Lynch on a number of Glee episodes). “I have known Jane for years, and have envied her quick wit – and her extraordinary height. She always makes the job of directing her a joy, and I look forward to her helping us honor the year’s best in film and television.”
Previous hosts included Carl Reiner — who led the ceremony an incredible 23 times — and Kelsey Grammer, who hosted for the past two years.
