Golden Globes 2018: Seth Meyers to Host NBC Most Popular Telecast

Seth Meyers will host NBC’s most popular show, the Golden Globe Awards telecast, on Sunday, January 7.

The front man of NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers” is a natural choice for the role.

“Tonight Show” star Jimmy Fallon did the honors for the 2017 Globes fete in January.

Meyers is takes on the assignment just seven weeks out from the telecast, which marks the 75th annual Globes ceremony. It comes at a tough time for showbiz persona to guide a live broadcast, given the intense public focus on sexual harassment.

Meyers was approached early on, but did not commit until just the past few days. Ellen DeGeneres and Tiffany Haddish were among the stars approached for the high-profile Globes job.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler also resisted overtures to return after their much-praised 2013-2015 run.

Ricky Gervais was an envelope-pushing, too riske for some, as Globes emcee from 2010 to 2012 and again in 2016.
