Emmy Award-winning actress Jane Lynch will host the 63RD PRIMETIME EMMY(R) AWARDS airing live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles on Sunday, Sept. 18, on FOX.

"When our host has comedic, dramatic and musical talents - as Jane proved in last year's opening number - we know it's going to be fun for us and for the audience at home!"

"Jane was my first - and only - choice as the host for this year's Primetime Emmys, and I am glad she said 'yes,'" said executive producer Mark Burnett. "She has incredible comedic timing, and is a charismatic, talented actress whose energy leaps off the screen and stage. I am thrilled and excited to have her as our host."

"Jane Lynch is one of the most gifted and entertaining actresses in film and television today, and we are thrilled she will be hosting the Primetime Emmys on FOX," said Mike Darnell, President of Alternative Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. "With her background in improvisation, her incredible comedic timing and a worldwide fan base that spans all ages, Jane is the perfect person to help us make this year's show absolutely unforgettable."

Nominations for the 63RD PRIMETIME EMMY(R) AWARDS will be announced at 5:40 AM PT on Thursday, July 14, from the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre, on the campus of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in North Hollywood, CA.

Best known for her breakout role as "Sue Sylvester" on the multiple-category Primetime Emmy-winning GLEE, Jane Lynch cut her theatrical teeth at The Second City, Steppenwolf Theatre and in many church basements all over the greater Chicago area.

Additional film credits include Christopher Guest's "For Your Consideration," "A Mighty Wind" and "Best In Show"; Margaret Cho's "Celeste and Bam Bam"; and Alan Cumming's "Suffering Man's Charity." Lynch was recently cast in the remake of "The Three Stooges," which is currently in production.
