Ellie Kemper and Carol Kane of Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Andrea Martin of NBC’s Great News were on hand to show their support for Fey, who executive produces both series. The cast of the Mean Girls musical,which Fey wrote based on her 2003 hit film of the same name, was also there to celebrate the actress-writer-producer-comedian.
“It feels like a great kindness to be here,” Fey humbly gushed to Et.
“To be honored by the theater community, it’s a big deal,” Fey added. “I’ve been doing theater since I was in high school, so getting to come in and try and be a part of this New York theater community, it’s really
News of Meyers’ gig first leaked to the trades last week, so the choice wasn’t a surprise. Interestingly, the HFPA made it official via a story on its website, rather than in a joint announcement with NBC.
Meyers takes over after “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon hosted last year’s ceremony. Meyers also hosted the Primetime Emmys in 2014, the last time NBC aired that awards show — which means that, perhaps, the two hosts have swapped gigs this year. If that’s the case, then Fallon might once again host next September’s Primetime Emmys, which he last did in 2010.
Meyers also continues the trend of former “Saturday Night Live Weekend Update” anchors hosting the Golden Globes,
Seth Meyers is set to host the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards in January 2018. The comedian and Late Night host takes over hosting duties from pal Jimmy Fallon after the Tonight Show host headed the show in 2017.
“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is excited to have Seth Meyers host the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards,” HFPA president Meher Tatna said in a statement, according to Entertainment Weekly. “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
"The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is excited to have Seth Meyers host the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards”, said HFPA President Meher Tatna in a statement. “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 Late Night host recently signed on to emcee the star-studded awards show just a few weeks before the Hollywood Foreign Press is set to hand out the coveted statues in January.
This is Meyers' first time hosting the prestigious show, as he takes the reins from The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon, who led the proceedings this past January.
Before Meyers took on the high-profile role, there was speculation
The move isn't a surprising one, but Meyers is perhaps a more palatable hosting options than last year's Jimmy Fallon or the Oscar's returning host Jimmy Kimmel. If nothing else this will bring Amy Poehler back to the Globes stage for their recurring "Really?" schtick, but even that notion underlines that these hosting gigs need some new blood. Shouldn't there be some prerequisite other than talk show hosting that makes a qualified host? Globes embrace television and films, but when will the film side be reflected in the host? Do the Globes even need a host?
The 75th Golden Globe Award nominations be announced on December 11 and will be awarded
The Golden Globes air January 7th, giving Meyers just seven weeks to prepare for what's expected to be a tenor-setting awards show: As the Golden Globes arrive before the Oscars and similar events, Hollywood will look to see how the Globes handle the sexual misconduct allegations sweeping through the entertainment industry, Variety reports.
The ceremony marks Meyers'
The report comes from our sister site Variety, who notes that the Jan. 7 ceremony is just seven weeks away, so an official announcement should be coming soon. It’s a natural fit: NBC airs the Golden Globes, and Meyers hosts NBC’s Late Night. (His late-night colleague Jimmy Fallon hosted the 2017 ceremony.) Variety says the network also approached Ellen DeGeneres, Tiffany Haddish and the duo of Tina Fey and

Difficult People Cancelled by Hulu
Hulu has canceled the Julie Klausner-created comedy series after three seasons.
Klausner stars with Billy Eichner on the show that premiered in August 2015. Its third season debuted in August 2017.
The series centers on Julie Kessler (Klausner) and Billy Epstein (Eichner), two struggling comedians who seemingly dislike everyone they encounter except for each other. Executive producers for the Universal Cable Productions project include Klausner and Amy Poehler, along with 3 Arts’ Dave Becky. Becky apologized Monday for how he initially responded to accusations.
Hulu has pulled the plug on Difficult People after three Spacey-skewering seasons, TVLine has learned. All told, the caustic, underrated Julie Klausner-Billy-Eichner comedy produced 28 episodes — all of which will continue to stream on Hulu.

The cast also included Andrea Martin, James Urbaniak and Cole Escola. Amy Poehler was among the series’ EPs.
Eichner weighed in on the show’s cancellation on Twitter late Tuesday:
Yes it’s true.
Beyond the physical or psychological damage that such harassment and assault caused its victims, many of these cases impacted careers — stopping some from chasing their Hollywood hopes and dreams all together, and keeping others from pursuing certain jobs because of whom might be attached.
For instance, in the NY Times exposé on Louis C.K.’s long history of sexual misconduct, two of the two women who watched C.K. get naked and masturbate in front of them, writers Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, told the newspaper that they didn’t go to the police because they were unsure whether or not what he had done was a criminal act.
But beyond whether C.K.
