From on stage at "Backstage at the Geffen," the annual gala for the Geffen Playhouse in Westwood, host Jane Lynch of "Glee" said she had participated in the theater's previous fundraisers, alongside such stars as Annette Bening, Alfre Woodard, Julie Andrews and others. "But now I'm the clearly most famous person in the room," Lynch said, sliding into the personality of her "Glee" alter-ego, Sue Sylvester. In truth, the Geffen had quite a lineup of A-list stars for Monday's event, which broke the theater's fundraising record by raking in $1 million from silent auction sales, sponsorships and tickets, which sold for $350 and up. On hand to make presentations, provide musical entertainment and regale the audience with behind-the-scene tales of theatrical life were actors Bening, Helen Mirren, Andy Garcia, Warren Beatty, Dick Van Dyke, Matthew Morrison, Dana Delany, Joe Mantegna and Beth Behrs, jazz great Arturo Sandoval, singer Monica Mancini, and Bruce Vilanch, the 17-time writer for the Academy Awards telecasts.

Strolling through Paramount Pictures' backlot on the way to the commissary, "Glee" costars Chris Colfer and Jane Lynch notice a change to the soundstage where they shoot their hit show. Colfer whips out his phone and takes a picture of the building's exterior, now adorned with a big sign trumpeting the first-year program's 19 Emmy nominations. "I'll tweet that later," Colfer says. "That's just amazing." Amazing doesn't begin to describe the last 15 months for the cast of "Glee," and particularly for Lynch and Colfer, both Emmy-nominated themselves.

At last year's Primetime Emmy Awards, Jane Lynch showed up in the red tracksuit made iconic by her Sue Sylvester character on "Glee," threw slushies on Jimmy Fallon and Tina Fey, joined in on the exuberant "Born to Run" opening number and went on to win the trophy for supporting actress. How do you top that? By actually hosting the ceremony this September. But whether the track suit will be back remains to be seen. For despite the huge audience affection for the character who wears it, Lynch is downplaying the role the menacing McKinley High cheerleading coach will play in her award night antics.
