Jane Lynch has won the 2010 Greggy Award for her Emmy-winning portray of coach Sue Sylvester on the Fox musical-comedy Glee.

The annual award is handed out by gay entertainment website GregInHollywood.com, which is edited by longtime Hollywood corresponded Greg Hernandez.

“It's not like Jane Lynch suddenly became more talented this year – 2010 just happened to be the year when the world decided to really take notice,” Hernandez wrote in a blog post announcing the winner.

“The gifted actress, who we had long loved from Christopher Guest movies including Best in Show and For Your Consideration, had been delivering stand-out performances in increasingly high-profile movies (40 Year Old Virgin, Talladega Nights) and TV shows (Boston Legal, Two and a Half Men) when along came the role of a lifetime: Sue Sylvester in Glee.”

The 50-year-old Lynch also married her girlfriend in 2010, becoming one of the few Hollywood celebrities to enter a gay marriage.

Hernandez also praised her gay activism.

“Through all of her mainstream success, Jane has not for a second turned her back on the LGBT causes she has been active in for so long,” he wrote.

Also winning Greggys this year are Glee co-stars Chris Colfer and Darren Criss, country music star Chely Wright, whose coming out gay story was named most moving, and rocker Adam Lambert, who was named Music Star of the Year.
