Fox’s hit musical comedy series Glee star, Jane Lynch who played the role of Sue Sylvester is in talks with the TV academy about hosting the Emmy Awards which airs on Fox on 18th September 2011.

In the recent years, the host of the Emmy Awards has characteristically been a star associated with the network airing the show. As there has been no late-night comedian few obvious comedy candidates, there has been speculation that Mark Burnett, the producer of the Emmy might search for the host outside. Choosing Jane Lynch would keep network synergy intact and provides a comedienne who can sing, act, and do a lot of comedy.

However, there is no deal with Jane yet, but it is unclear whether she would host alone or be paired with one or more co-hosts. If the actress signs up to host the show alone, then she will be the third woman to do after Angela Lansbury and Ellen DeGeneres who hosted alone in during 1993 and 2005.

Previously, Kristie Alley, Wanda Sykes, Joan Rivers, Heidi Klum were paired with one or more men while hosting the show. Last year, it was Jimmy Fallon who joined the show for hosting. On Wednesday night, the host must also be approved by the TV Academy’s board of governors. Jane Lynch has enough comedic sensibilities and timing to get by on her own just fine.
