Primetime Emmys 2011: Jane Lynch jokingly slaps crew member

Jane Lynch attending the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards


Jane Lynch has been seen jokingly slapping an Emmy crew member backstage.

While presenting the award for 'Outstanding Directing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Series', Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder praised the showrunners for dealing with "difficult talent".

The camera then cut to a shot of host Lynch slapping an Emmy crew member backstage at the show.

On realising the camera was turned on her, the 51-year-old smiled sheepishly.

Somerhalder was joined by Glee's Lea Michele to present the accolade. The two followed up The Lonely Island and Michael Bolton performing a medley of the group's most popular songs.

"Wow, nothing we say is going to be funny now," Michele noted.
