Eric McCormack, Debra Messing to host Golden Globes 75th anniversary special

Eric McCormack, Debra Messing to host Golden Globes 75th anniversary special

NBC's most political late-night host is very close to closing a deal to host the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

This year's Golden Globes nominations will be announced December 11, with the winners unveiled January 7 on NBC.

Like Stephen Colbert's Late Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live, in the aftermath of Trump's election, Meyers has seen the ratings for his politically leaning late-night show soar.

But Seth - famous for his anti-Donald Trump gags and one of few United States comedians fearless enough to address the Harvey Weinstein scandal when the news first broke in early October this year [2017] - is set to come to the rescue.

Variety adds that Ellen DeGeneres and Tiffany Haddish were in consideration to host the Golden Globes before Meyers signed on.

The program will showcase the best moments spanning 75 years of the Golden Globes, featuring the biggest film and TV stars of all time, red carpet highlights and fashion throughout the years.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler turned down the offer, having hosted from 2013-2015.

Outside of his talk show, Meyers previously hosted the Emmys in 2014 as well as the 2011 White House Correspondents dinner where his Trump-skewering speech was widely thought to be inspiration for the former-Apprentice host's run for office.
