Comedian Kathy Griffin will join the E! red carpet team during E!’s coverage of the Grammys and Academy Awards, the network announced today.

“Kathy’s razor-sharp wit and amazing comedic timing make her a great addition to E!’s award-show coverage,” said Salaam Coleman Smith, senior VP of programming for E! Networks. “We’re pleased to welcome her back on the red carpet for both the Grammy and Oscars this month and look forward to experiencing her unique humor and offbeat personal observations as the stars arrive.”

Ms. Griffin made her red carpet debut during E!’s Golden Globes coverage last month. During the coverage, Ms. Griffin joked that 10-year-old actress Dakota Fanning had just returned from rehab, a comment that prompted a swift apology from the network.
