Hey, kids. I’m representing FDL at the WGAE Awards tonight. Very exciting.

The Writers Guild of America represents writers in motion pictures, television, cable, digital media, and broadcast news. Just as important, it is the voice of these artists at the legislative level. Tonight, the WGAE is working in tandem with its West Coast sister to present their awards.

Kristen Schaal, the host for the evening, takes the podium. You may know her from “Flight of the Conchords”, and “The Daily Show”. She cracks wise almost instantly, She says nobody leaves this auditorium until “Mubarak steps down”.

You can view the list of nominees here.
