Patton Oswalt to Host Writers Guild Awards

Patton Oswalt to Host Writers Guild Awards
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,

Mischer lines up scribes for Emmys

Mischer lines up scribes for Emmys
This year's Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony will feature a grab bag of at least nine major comedy stars in lieu of a dedicated host, making it especially challenging for the writers and producers of Fox's live three-hour telecast. But it's a task that Emmy telecast executive producer Don Mischer says he and his team are up to, even if Mischer admits they haven't quite figured out how they'll pull it off by the time the big show starts Sept. 21. Mischer has lined up awards show veterans Jon Macks, Dave Boone and Beth Armogida to write the show, though more scribes may be added in the coming weeks. "Generally, the host of a three-hour show will make 18-20 separate appearances during the course of a three-hour ceremony," Mischer said. "This year, in an attempt to help comedy be the central focus of the show, we wanted to put more comedic talent on the stage in any way possible."
