The 74th Annual DGA Awards in Beverly Hills were hosted by veteran director Judd Apatow, who previously hosted the ceremony in 2018.

While speaking about the show on their website last month, DGA President Lesli Linka Glatter gushed: ‘What makes the DGA Awards so very special is that it is recognition by one’s peers.’

‘We could really use some laughs,’ she said. ‘There is no host that hits all these notes more perfectly than leading director, comedian, writer and industry force, the incredible Judd Apatow. We couldn’t be more grateful that he’s returning to the DGA Awards stage.’ 

‘I am so excited to host again as part of my ongoing campaign for the Lifetime Achievement Award,’ Apatow, 54, joked of getting tapped to host for the third time.

Unfortunately for Apatow, the Lifetime Achievement Award for Distinguished Achievement in Motion Picture Direction was given to Spike Lee.

His extraordinary efforts in the art of cinema, from Do the Right Thing to BlacKkKlansman have cemented his status in Hollywood as a trailblazer and force of nature.

‘Spike is an innovator on so many levels. His bold and passionate storytelling over the past three decades has masterfully entertained, as it held a stark mirror to our society and culture. And while he is no stranger to huge commercial success, he is also the beating heart of independent film,’ Glatter said of the legendary film director, 64.

She concluded: ‘Even as countless filmmakers call Spike their mentor and inspiration, he continues to devote his time to teaching future generations how to make their mark. We are thrilled to present Spike with the DGA’s highest honor.’ 

Back in 2020, he took home the DGA Honor for his distinguished contributions to our nation’s culture in support of filmmaking.

Additionally, First Assistant Director Joseph P. Reidy, whose credits include Black Swan and Quiz Show, will receive the DGA’s 2022 Frank Capra Achievement Award.

Manager Garry W. Hood will receive the DGA’s 2022 Franklin J. Schaffner Achievement Award. 

‘Joe Reidy and Garry Hood are widely respected leaders in their fields who have dedicated themselves to representing their fellow members, standing up for their rights, and giving back to their union – including most recently through their participation on our Covid-19 Return to Work Committee,’ said Glatter. 

The DGA president added: ‘Our Guild draws its strength from the service and commitment of our members, and these special award winners embody that spirit at the highest level.’
