Giuliana Rancic may have one of the coolest jobs in Hollywood – and that's not something she takes lightly.

Well, except for when the E! host takes a break from reporting to goof off with the hottest stars on the red carpet – just one of the perks of her job! – with a little lighthearted fun.

Sunday night's Screen Actors Guild Awards was no exception, and before celebrities filed into L.A.'s Shrine Exposition Center, Rancic had three targets in mind: George Clooney and girlfriend Stacey Keibler and Glee star Jane Lynch.

But was her wit a hit? Check out her best moments, then tell us how Lynch fared as Emmy host:

Glee Season 3 Dodgeball Promo: Sue Attacks

Originally posted 08/25/2011 10:50AM



Watch out, Gleeks! Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) has the students of McKinley High in her crosshairs.

In a new promo for Fox's hit show Glee, which returns Sept. 20, the nasty Cheerios coach plays a little dodgeball to the tune of the Go-Go's "We Got the Beat."

While Rachel (Lea Michele), Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) and Emma (Jayma Mays) don't get hit, most of the guys, including Finn (Cory Monteith), Puck (Mark Salling) and Artie (Kevin McHale) all get nailed – in the face.

Like the devilishly fun promo promises, "This season will be impossible to miss."
