MacFarlane also currently serves as co-creator/executive producer/voice actor on the Fox animated series American Dad and The Cleveland Show, which premiered on Fox with exceptional ratings last September.

“I’m honored and humbled to be chosen as host of the WGAW awards. I look forward to catching up with my strike buddies from 2007, and making some new strike buddies for 2011,” said MacFarlane on his WGA L.A. show hosting gig.

“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 Writers Guild Awards’ WGAW show executive producer Spike Jones, Jr.
