Patton Oswalt to Host Writers Guild Awards for Second Year

16 November 2016 11:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Patton Oswalt will host the Writers Guild Awards for the second year in a row.

Hugh Fink will be back for his third consecutive year as executive producer of the ceremonies, to be held in Los Angeles on Feb. 19 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

“Writing is the goodest thing for movies when you watch the movies the writing is what makes the actors go I like writing,” Oswalt joked.

“Despite Patton Oswalt’s brilliant performance hosting last year’s awards, FiveThirtyEight predicted there was a less than 20% chance that he would agree to host this year’s show,” Fink teased. “Fortunately, Patton has proved all the pundits wrong and will make the Writers Guild Awards Great Again.”

Oswalt won a Primetime Emmy Award for outstanding writing for a variety special for his Netflix one-man comedy, “Talking for Clapping.” He also received a WGA nomination for co-writing the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards show, »

Patton Oswalt to Host Writers Guild Awards

4 February 2016 1:19 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Patton Oswalt has been selected to host the Writers Guild Awards West Coast ceremony on Feb. 13 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

Hugh Fink returns as executive producer of this year’s show.

“Even though I am unable to read or write, the fact that the Wgaw wants me to host their awards show proves to me that the only thing bigger than the Guild’s scotch budget…is the size of their hearts,” said Oswalt.

Fink said, “I am truly honored to have Patton Oswalt hosting the 2016 Writers Guild Awards. This fulfills a lifelong dream Patton and I have shared since our early days as standup comedians: to work together in a Hyatt Regency ballroom immediately following the Shapiro Bat Mitzvah.”

Patton and co-writers Gerry Duggan, Wayne Federman and Erik Weiner received a Writers Guild Award nomination last year for co-writing the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards show, »
