Last year's Golden Globes saw a number of its winners taking the opportunity to speak their mind about important subjects in current affairs, including Meryl Streep, who took the opportunity to slam President Donald Trump (who then retaliated on his Twitter page).
HFPA President Meher Tatna said in a statement: '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 media mogul, who will next be seen in "A Wrinkle in Time", will receive the 2018 Cecil B. DeMille Award, an honor given to Meryl Streep a year ago.
According to celebrity stylist Ilaria Urbinati, the gentlemen she is dressing for the big event will also stand in solidarity with their female counterparts.
An insider claimed: 'All female actresses attending the Globes are protesting by just wearing black gowns'.
In early December, multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE that many actresses would wear black to the first major awards show of the season.
