Jane Lynch on Saying Goodbye to Glee: 'I Don't Want to Face It'

Originally posted 02/26/2015 12:15PM

As Glee nears its series finale, both Gleeks and the cast have begun to mourn.

Jane Lynch – whose character Sue Sylvester reinvigorated the art of the snippy one-liner and made track suits acceptable office apparel – tells PEOPLE she was flooded with emotions while filming the show's final episode last Saturday.

"It was waterworks," admitted the Emmy winner, 54, who teamed with the ASPCA and Febreze on Wednesday to educate pet owners against the affects of noseblindness.

"There are some takes I'm sure they can't use because we were all weeping," she continues. "It was hard to get through."

Glee: Sue Has Something to Show Becky – and It's a Tad Creepy (VIDEO)

Originally posted 01/30/2015 04:30PM

Even Becky knows when Sue has gone off her rocker.

In this exclusive clip from Friday's episode of Glee, Sue (Jane Lynch) takes Becky (Lauren Potter) into her private, intimately lit locker to expose her next mission: getting Blaine (Darren Criss) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) back together.

As part of her new strategy to mend relationships, Sue waxes on about Kurt and Blaine's "love for the ages" and how their chemistry is so intense, it would be a hump-a-palooza if they ever actually locked eyeballs.

Needless to say, Becky's a little blown away by all the imagery.

PEOPLE's TV Critic: What the Emmys Got Right and Wrong

Originally posted 09/23/2013 03:00PM

Late into the 65th annual Emmys ceremony Sunday on CBS, host Neil Patrick Harris announced: "No one in America is winning their Emmy office pool."

If you did happen to win, you should consider a career in statistical forecasting. The awards were all over the place.

Of the night's many surprises, the biggest was in the category of best actor. Academy voters for once decided not to give the prize to Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston – but instead of rewarding Mad Men's Jon Hamm, the perennial also-ran, they chose Jeff Daniels of HBO's The Newsroom. Perhaps they concluded that Hamm is already lousy with nominations, and handsome as the devil, and that should hold him. Daniels is a fine actor, as you'll discover if you catch just about any of his many performances of the past three decades, but The Newsroom's first season was a pounding surf of angry, righteous yammering. Oh well.

Here's what else the Emmys got right and wrong:

There was an outcry when the Emmy producers announced that they were paying special tribute during Sunday's telecast to five people the industry had lost over the past year.

The rumblings were so loud about what some saw as favoritism that even Emmys host Neil Patrick Harris stepped into the fray to explain the reasoning.

"I always find the In Memoriam is just really interesting because sometimes it seems weird that they keep the audio on in the house, so some people get applause and some people don't, and it turns it into this weird moment," he told Access Hollywood. "And you want that moment to be honoring those people, and not a competition."
