The 33-year-old comedian, who got her start as a member of NYC's Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, is partnering with J.Crew and the nonprofit One Warm Coat to kick off their national coat drive. Abbi's goal is to encourage J.Crew shoppers to donate their gently used coats to help those in need this holiday season - and it's an initiative she has some experience with. I got the chance to chat with Abbi about her involvement with One Warm Coat and J.Crew's Give and Get Coat event, which aims to warm 1 million people in need with outerwear this year.

Seth Meyers to Host 2018 Golden Globes, Perhaps Paving the Way for Jimmy Fallon to Host Next Year’s Emmys

  • Indiewire
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is apparently thankful for Seth Meyers. The organization chose Thanksgiving Day to announce that the “Late Night with Seth Meyers” star will host the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

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,

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.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Weren't Available, So Seth Meyers Is Hosting the Golden Globes

  • BuzzSugar
Award season is nearly upon us! Seth Meyers is reportedly set to host the 2018 Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 7, according to Variety. The Late Night host is still in the process of closing the deal, less than two months away from the big show, which would mark his first time hosting the event. Meyers previously hosted the Primetime Emmy Awards in 2014 and has no shortage of experience with live TV, thanks to his time on Saturday Night Live and Late Night With Seth Meyers. If he does get the job, Meyers will have some pretty big shoes to fill. To jog your memory, Jimmy Fallon hosted the award show in 2017, with the seasoned Ricky Gervais hosting the year before him. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were extremely well liked when they took on the gig for three consecutive years; however, they reportedly turned down the opportunity this year.

Seth Meyers as Golden Globes Host

Chris here. Looks like the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is nailing down a host for the 75th Golden Globes ceremony and they are very much sticking within the late night host mold: Seth Meyers is closing in on the gig.

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?

As an avalanche of stories about bad behavior in Hollywood consumes the industry, it’s time to not only question the system that enabled this behavior, but acknowledge the full extent of the resulting damage.

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.
