Looks like the fifth time will be the charm for director Judd Apatow (“Knocked Up,” “Trainwreck”), as the sometime-stand-up-comedian and super-producer behind some of Hollywood’s most enduring comedies returns to host the Directors Guild of America Awards after stints in every single year since 2018 except for 2019.
In a typically cheeky response, Apatow stated “it’s an honor to be hosting the DGA Awards for the 5th time. Just three more times and I’ll be eligible for health insurance.”
Emmy-nominated “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” director Beth McCarthy-Miller will serve as Chair for her third consecutive year. “I’m honored to return as Awards Chair and to be a part of such a stellar night that highlights the amazing work my colleagues have done this year,” said McCarthy-Miller. “I’m thrilled that Judd will return as our host, keeping our ceremony grounded in connection, camaraderie, and comedy.”
The 76th annual DGA Awards celebrating outstanding achievement in directing over the various mediums will take place on Feb. 10, 2024 at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.
