“We’re so pleased to welcome Kelsey Grammer back as host of the DGA Awards for the second year in a row,” Hackford said. “Last year, Kelsey kept the show (and the wine) flowing while both celebrating the craft of directing and poking fun in all the right places. The audience had a rousing good time and I know we are all looking forward to seeing what Kelsey comes up with this year.”
