Zooey Deschanel


These two will share the hosting duty for the Los Angeles ceremony while Rachel Dratch will go solo for the New York bash.

The funny girl and boy from television have been hired to lead the Writers Guild of America Awards on Sunday, February 19. Zooey Deschanel of "New Girl" and Joel McHale of "Community" will co-host the event held at Los Angeles' Hollywood Palladium for the West Coast.

"It should be a lot of fun!," Deschanel said in a statement. "I am very honored to be included." McHale chimed in, "I'm deeply excited to co-host the WGA Awards with Zooey Deschanel. She has that rare combination in that she's beautiful, funny and smells good. Without writers, movies and TV would be worse than untreated syphilis, so I'm thrilled to hand these fine people awards for their great work."

Over at the East Coast, "Saturday Night Live" star Rachel Dratch is put on duty to host the ceremony held at B.B. King Blues Club in New York City. Both events would be simultaneously held.

WGA also announced the first batch of presenters who are Jonathan Ames, Jimmy Fallon, Geoffrey Fletcher, Steve Kroft, Seth Meyers, James Schamus, Kate Mulgrew and Jon Benjamin.
