Honestly, I was sorta hoping Ricky Gervais would return to skewer celebrities. Given the current climate in Hollywood in this post Harvey Weinstein era, I guess the Hollywood Foreign Press Association didn’t want to take any risks. This is likely the smarter and safer choice.
Seth Meyers has been announced as the host for the 75th Golden Globes. There were rumors that the HFPA debated going hostless this year. I’m glad they changed their minds. This marks the 43-year-old comedian’s first time hosting the annual event. His previous hosting gigs include the Emmys and White House Correspondents Dinner in 2014 and 2011 respectively.
In other Golden Globes news, Debra Messing and Will McCormack have been tapped to host The Golden Globes 75th Anniversary Special, airing Wednesday, December 13. The 2-hour special will feature new and exclusive interviews with Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Christine Lahti, Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, Jacob Tremblay, Kate Winslet, Brad Goreski and more, along with comedic highlights from past hosts and presenters.
The 75th Golden Globes airs on NBC on January 7, 2018. What do you think of Meyers hosting the show? Good or bad idea?
