Seth Meyers confirmed as 2018 Golden Globes host


And we have a host: Seth Meyers will serve as MC of the 75 Golden Globe Awards ceremony.

The Late Night host recently signed on to emcee the star-studded awards show just a few weeks before the Hollywood Foreign Press is set to hand out the coveted statues in January. NBC recently claimed its 4th consecutive 52-week demo ratings win and was No. 1 in late-night with The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Meyers' Late Night. It is likely that the Globes will experience a similarly topical discussion throughout the broadcast as Meyers is not known to beat around any bushes.

Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Meher Tatna confirmed the news, saying in a statement (via Entertainment Weekly): "The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is excited to have Seth Meyers host the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards".

The Golden Globes are always a great source of red carpet fashion and behind-the-scenes Insta pics, but it's also stacked with plenty of on-point and timely jokes, thanks to hosts past such as BFFs Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, Jimmy Fallon, and Ricky Gervais.

Seth Meyers is going to preside over the first major award show of the season. He had previously hosted the ESPY Awards in 2010 and the Primetime Emmy Awards in 2014.

The host of Late Night with Seth Meyers has become of the most vocal critics of President Trump. The 43-year-old comic led the 2014 Emmys and famously lampooned Trump - who was then simply a businessman and reality personality - during the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner.
