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.

Lynch was also ready to take on the red carpet – as well as a juggling challenge against Rancic. The two ladies went head-to-head before Rancic outlasted Lynch with the circus trick.
