Jane Lynch has been selected to host the 66th Annual Directors Guild of America Awards, which will take place Jan. 25 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

DGA President Paris Barclay made the announcement Wednesday and praised the Glee star for her wit and her height.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jane Lynch as host of the DGA Awards for the very first time,” said Barclay. “I have known Jane for years, and have envied her quick wit -- and her extraordinary height. She always makes the job of directing her a joy, and I look forward to her helping us honor the year’s best in film and television.”

Lynch has previously hosted the Emmy Awards as well as Comedy Central’s roast of Roseanne Barr.
