Seth Meyers gets to do what he does best: host!
It has been confirmed that Meyers has scored the prestigious hosting gig and will serve as the host for the upcoming 2018 Golden Globes.
“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is excited to have Seth Meyers host the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards,” HFPA president Meher Tatna said in a statement. “With his natural comedic wit and innate ability to charm audiences, Seth will help us carry on the celebratory tradition of recognizing the best in television and film at the Party of the Year.”
The 75th annual Golden Globes will take place this January. Meyers, host of the Late Night show, much like he does on NBC’s late-night schedule, will follow in the footsteps of fellow NBC late-night host Jimmy Fallon, who emceed the 2017 event.
With just 7 weeks to prepare, this hosting gig marks Meyer’s return to hosting a major awards show since the 2014 Emmys. It’ll also mark the 5th time in 6 years an Saturday Night Live veteran hosted the Golden Globes following Fallon, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.
Golden Globes nominees will be announced on December 11 and the ceremony will air live in January 7.
