Seth Meyers Will Host 2018 Golden Globe Awards

Who better to host one of Hollywood's biggest events than, well, a host?

Seth Meyers, who leads his own NBC talk show Late Night with Seth Meyers, has been tapped to front the upcoming 2018 Golden Globe Awards. Meyers succeeds fellow funnyman and former Saturday Night Live cast member Jimmy Fallon, who hosted the Golden Globes in 2017. 

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. 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."

Meyers' first awards hosting gig came in 2010, when he emceed the ESPY Awards. He returned to host following year as well, then went on to lead the 2014 Primetime Emmys. And beyond his hosting expertise, Meyers also seems a natural fit to head up the Golden Globes due to the fact that the ceremony is produced by Dick Clark Productions and broadcast by NBC, where his own show is housed. 

Nominations for the 15th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be revealed on December 11. The awards ceremony is set to air live coast-to-coast on January 7 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Check back with Looper for a full list of nominees when they are announced.
