Judd Apatow returns as host of DGA Awards
- LOS ANGELES
Judd Apatow will be back to host the 74th Annual DGA Awards, and Beth McCarthy-Miller has been appointed as awards chair for the event, which will take place on March 12, 2022 at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.
“What makes the DGA Awards so very special is that it is recognition by one’s peers; camaraderie in celebrating excellence in our craft, and our DGA teams; as well as the special evening we share together as a storytelling family. And more than any other year, we could really use some laughs,” said Lesli Linka Glatter, DGA president. “There is no host that hits all these notes more perfectly than leading director, comedian, writer and industry force, the incredible Judd Apatow. We couldn’t be more grateful that he’s returning to the DGA Awards stage. And behind the scenes, when it comes to all things live and comedy, it doesn’t get better than Beth McCarthy-Miller. With this powerhouse team on board, it’s sure to be a fun-filled evening.”
“I am so excited to host again as part of my ONGOING campaign for the Lifetime Achievement Award,” said Apatow.
“I feel so lucky to be asked by one of my all-time favorite directors, Lesli Linka Glatter, to be a part of this incredible night celebrating the great work that all of my colleagues have done this year,” said McCarthy-Miller. “And I will do my best to explain to Judd that hosting in no way gets you a Lifetime Achievement Award.”
Previously, Apatow hosted the 70th DGA Awards in 2018 and the 72nd DGA Awards in 2020.
