Out TV star Jane Lynch has picked up a second Emmy award hosting NBC’s Hollywood Game Night. Best known for her role as Sue Sylvester on Glee, Lynch won the Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Reality-Competition Program award, for celebrity gameshow Hollywood Game Night.
At last Saturday night’s Creative Arts Emmy awards, she paid tribute to the show’s executive producer – Sean Hayes, who played Jack on Will & Grace, she said:
“Thank you for taking your crazy party and pitching it to NBC… thank you NBC for taking the bait. I hope we’ll do more. I’m tickled pink, actually.” Jane Lynch

Lynch won her first Emmy – for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series – in 2010 for her Glee role, and hosted the awards ceremony in 2011.
Also at the awards, actress Uzo Aduba picked up an Emmy for playing lesbian Orange is the New Black character Suzanne Warren, known as Crazy Eyes. She beat out transgender co-star Laverne Cox to take home the award, presented to her by actor Morgan Freeman.
