And we have a host: Seth Meyers will serve as MC of the 75th Golden Globe Awards ceremony. The host of NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers will step into a role that in recent years has been Tina Fey’s and Amy Poehler’s, Ricky Gervais’ and most recently Jimmy Fallon’s.
“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is excited to have Seth Meyers host the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards”, said HFPA President Meher Tatna. “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 writer-comedian is a 12-year veteran of Saturday Night Live, both in the writers' room and behind the desk of “Weekend Update”.
The one-time SNL head writer (he succeeded fellow Globes host, Tina Fey, in that capacity) is also no stranger to awards shows, having done the honors for the 2010 ESPY awards and for the Prime Time Emmys in 2014. Now he will take on Globes duties in our Diamond Jubilee edition.
The 75thAnnual Golden Globe Awards presentation will take place on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018. The ceremony will air on NBC live coast-to-coast at 8 p.m. ET. Nominations will be announced Monday, Dec. 11.
