Late Night frontman Seth Meyers is officially the host of the 2018 Golden Globe Awards! The Hollywood Foreign Press President Meher Tatna confirmed the news to Entertainment Weekly on Thursday.
“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is excited to have Seth Meyers host the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards. 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 January 7 gala marks the commemorative 75th anniversary of the laid back award show that recognizes the best in both movies and television. There were rumors floating around that the Globes would be going hostless and instead opting to have the stars read through teleprompters, but that seems to have been too big of a risk for such a landmark year.
Meyers isn’t new to the award show hosting gig. In 2014 he hosted the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. He joins the ranks of Amy Phoeler and Tina Fey, Jimmy Fallon and Ricky Gervais as Golden Globe Hosts.
Now, we just need to know who those nominees are! What do you think about Meyers hosting?
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
