Jane Lynch wins an Emmy- was it Studio 312 that propelled her to these heights?

Last night Jane Lynch won the Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Comedy for her role as Sue Sylvester on Glee. While she certainly deserves this honor, the question remains- Would she be this successful if she'd never appeared on Studio 312? Way back in 2008 Jimmy Carane spoke with the actress and she said her most recognizable TV role was on Two and A Half Men. She also mentioned that in high school she was in choir. Did THAT VERY CONVERSATION get her thinking about her career trajectory? Could it have inspired a call to her agent to find a show about a high school choir? Who knows- all we're saying is its possible things happened that way...
