Kelsey Grammer to Host 65th Annual DGA Awards

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

Camille Grammer goes after Kelsey over childcare

HollywoodNews.com: ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star Camille Grammer had a nasty divorce with Kelsey Grammer, and it seems the hard feelings are not gone.
Camille recently commented on Kelsey allegedly traveling with his newborn baby in a car without a carseat, states TMZ. “I don’t think it’s good to have a 4-month-old in a car without a car seat … it’s so irresponsible,” Camille said about the matter.
However, Kelsey’s rep is still trying to diffuse the situation: “Kelsey went back in and got the car seat and met them at the car. Did the car drive a few yards without the car seat? Yes. At no time does the video show them leaving the airport with the baby not in the car seat.”
What do you think about this matter?

Kelsey Grammer explains taking baby to Playboy party

HollywoodNews.com: While many were shocked to hear that Kelsey Grammer took his newborn baby to the Playboy mansion Halloween party, he claims he has a perfectly good answer.
Grammer recently explained that the three-month-old was at the party because him and his wife, Kayte, couldn’t find a babysitter, states TMZ. “Kayte is breast-feeding and we do not have a nanny or a trusted baby-sitter at this time, so Faith goes everywhere with us,” Grammer commented.
Grammer also explained that the baby had her ears covered the entire time and slept through the party which they left just after midnight.
