The Golden Globes are the only award ceremony that celebrates film and television on the same night and through the years comedians like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Ricky Gervais and -most recently- Jimmy Fallon have been in charge of hosting this event.
Next year’s gala will be hosted by none other than Seth Meyers, host of NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers and SNL 12-year veteran, who is no stranger to hosting events like he proved back in 2014 with the Prime Time Emmy Awards.
The news was revealed in a tweet through the official Golden Globes account, alongside a written statement from the official website of the awards.
In the released statement, Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Meher Tatna praised Meyers “comedic wit and innate ability to charm” as the reasons why he was chosen as host for the Golden Globes of next year.
“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.”
The Nominations will be announced on Monday, December 11 through the official social media of the HFPA and the Golden Globes.
