“I struggle to find words to address the pain that everyone in our industry has experienced in our collective struggle to get what we all deserve,” Glatter said.

“We are grateful to be back doing the work we love, with extraordinary new creative and economic protection for DGA members and so many others.

“Our sister guilds, the WGA and SAG-AFTRA, have fought hard and made strong agreements on behalf of their members.”

Returning as host for the fifth time, Judd Apatow cracked a few jokes about the strikes.

‘Finally, what have we learned from the strikes? We’ve learned that Fran Drescher is the voice of reason, and unfortunately, that’s what reason sounds like.

“And two, audiences like to watch old shows that have been around for many seasons. They don’t care if they are new at all.’
