Family Guy creator an all-around animation mogul Seth MacFarlane will host the 2010 Writers Guild Awards’ West Coast ceremony.
‘I’m honored and humbled to be chosen as host of the WGAW awards,’ says MacFarlane, who also is co-creator, executive producer and voice actor on American Dad! and The Cleveland Show. ‘I look forward to catching up with my strike buddies from 2007, and making some new strike buddies for 2011.’
‘Everyone knows his extraordinary voiceover talents, but we’re only beginning to see him as a versatile live performer. He can sing, dance, spin plates ‘ and we’re going to put him to work,’ said WGAW show executive producer Spike Jones Jr.
The bicoastal awards ceremony is set for Feb. 20, with the West Coast edition to be held at the Hyatt Regency Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.
