‘Friends’ and ‘The Comeback’ star, Lisa Kudrow’, has been confirmed as the host for the Writer’s Guild Awards in Los Angeles this Valentine’s Day.

“One of my most proud moments was when I qualified to join the Writers Guild… Now, I’m truly honored to be asked to host the WGAW awards show this year,” Kudrow said in a statement.

Although Kudrow is best known for her acting in both film and television, she is also the co-creator of HBO’s ‘The Comeback’ and Showtime’s ‘Web Therapy’.

Kudrow’s voice will be featured in the animated feature ‘El Americano: The Movie’ as Lucille. Co-starring Cheech Marin and Gabriel Iglesias, ‘El Americano’ follows a “carefree Mexican pre-teen parrot, whose quest is to venture to Hollywood and enlist the aid of his favorite hero in order to help his father, Gayo and protect his circus family from the threat of Martin Kingfisher and his henchmen.”

Kudrow has been a WGA member since 2005.
