Jane Lynch will return to host the DGA Awards for the second year in a row.

“She’s back, we’ve got her, and we couldn’t be more pleased,” said DGA president Paris Barclay. “Last year, Jane gave us a taste of her smart, stinging wit, and we loved it. We want more and we’re thrilled she’s agreed to come back.”
