Thompson on Hollywood

The West Coast Writers Guild Awards ceremony will be hosted by Modern Family's Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel February 5. Here are the nominees. The pair star as Modern Family's gay adoptive parents. WGA Awards show exec producer Spike Jones, Jr. says "audiences don’t know these guys can sing, dance, juggle, clown, and have done everything from motion pictures to Broadway. They’re a pair of old-fashioned entertainers, and I’m looking forward to cutting them loose.”

Stonestreet said: “

I am humbled, honored and excited to be asked to host the WGA Awards. I’m also thankful that the WGA has recognized me as an individual apart from my co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson...

...I am very fond of Jesse but also very sick of him. Did you know we’re not an actual real couple? And I’m tired of people thinking I can’t exist without him. Anyway, I look forward to a great evening.

Ferguson added:

"I love Eric so much and any opportunity I have to be around him in the public eye or in private I will jump at. I love that he can’t exist without me. I feel like we are an actual couple sometimes. He doesn’t know it yet but I am having a custom three-legged tux made for us later today. Anyway, I look forward to a great evening. With Eric."
