Jane Lynch & Emmy

Jane Lynch & EmmyJane Lynch & Emmy, The first good news. Well, at least potentially good news. Jane Lynch is the host of the upcoming Primetime Emmy Awards! Yes, Neil Patrick Harris liked me too, but apparently he cannot hold everything all the time and was good enough to pass Lynch on Twitter and has a point. Lynch is nice, she’s a good actress, you can do nice and fun to do and, in general, I can imagine her handling of all changes in tone and humor that make the awards will take place a modern spectacle. In addition, she is taller than most people, so: height!

Now possibly disturbing news: the announcement, Lynch says, “I have really wanted to sing, dance and sporting my best tracksuit” in reference to the signature of her character costumes Glee, Sue Sylvester.

It was a joke. I’m waiting. Please, it was a joke?

Now I can not imagine that Lynch would agree to something so corny as to make the awards around the character, not even the producer Mark Burnett, we do not know the subtleties of their work plan would be. But the awards are on Fox this year, and I could see the desire Glee give the fans what they want, while also providing the network for some promotions, for having “Sue” to the opening monologue or sketch, or some other section of the awards.

Nothing against Lynch and Sue “Well, yes, I have something against Sue. She is a fun character and Lynch, works brilliantly, but is overused in Glee and almost everything used to promote Glee. During the second season of the series, Sue, even though there were times, became a symbol of the problems of the program: take something that was very popular and giving fans too much of it, at risk to any line basic reality of the show had.

Of course, Emmy did not Glee. My more practical problem is that even with an artist as talented as Jane Lynch, I cannot imagine a way for a performer to host the awards in character and do not leave unbearably corny. Unless that is a Muppet character. Insert joke Sue-as-Big-Bird here.
