Directors Guild of America President Taylor Hackford and 65th Annual DGA Awards Dinner Chair Michael Stevens today announced that director/actor/producer Kelsey Grammer will host the 65th Annual DGA Awards on Saturday, February 2, 2013 in the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland in Los Angeles.

"We're so pleased to welcome Kelsey Grammer back as host of the DGA Awards for the second year in a row," said Hackford. "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."

Stevens said, "Kelsey is the consummate entertainer - between his sharp wit and archly-raised eyebrow, and his long history in this community on both sides of the camera, the show promises to be just as lively and irreverent as ever."

Grammer, who starred for two seasons on the critically acclaimed Boss, became a DGA member in 1996 and was himself nominated for a DGA Award for outstanding directing in a Comedy Series for the "Merry Christmas, Mrs. Moskowitz" episode of Frasier. In addition to directing nearly 40 episodes of Frasier, Grammer's other directing credits include Everybody Hates Chris; Out of Practice; My Ex Life; Alligator Point; and Hank. Grammer most recently voiced the character of the Tin Man in Dorothy of Oz and just finished acting in the feature film Reach Me, both slated for 2013.

Grammer has appeared on Broadway in La Cage aux Folles, Macbeth and Othello. His off-Broadway credits include Sunday in the Park with George at Playwrights Horizons, Quartermaine's Terms and Plenty.

This will be Grammer's second consecutive turn hosting the DGA Awards.
