Jane Lynch to Host DGA Awards

Ceremonies taking place Jan. 25

The Directors Guild of America has tapped Jane Lynch as  host of the 66th Annual DGA Awards.

Ceremonies are set for Jan. 25 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jane Lynch as host of the DGA Awards for the very first time,” said DGA president Pairs Barclay. “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.”

Lynch hosted the Emmys in 2011 but it’s her first time hosting the DGA Awards. She is also the first woman to ever do so.

Kelsey Grammer has hosted the part two DGA Awards ceremonies, following two years with Carl Reiner and one with Jon Cryer, who subbed in 2009 as a last-minute replacement for Reiner, who had taken ill from food poisoning. At that point, Reiner had a string of 21 consecutive hosting gigs.
