Seth Meyers Set to Host 2018 Golden Globes for the First Time
Seth Meyers is taking on hosting duties at the upcoming Golden Globes. The news was announced on Thanksgiving Day in a statement from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

"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.

‘Marvel’s Runaways’: The 6 Best Changes from the Comics to the Hulu Series
For comic book fans, the premiere of a new adaptation of a favorite work is always a nerve-wracking thing. The hope is that the story will be captured well by the producers, while the reality is the history of comics adaptations is littered with massive disappointments.

So it’s a relief to see that so far, Hulu’s adaptation of the Brian K. Vaughn-created “Runaways” has lived up to the expectations of Marvel fans, while not being shy about making some significant changes to the story and the characters. However, there’s no reason to fear these changes, as many of them prove to be not necessarily an improvement on the original story, but clearly valuable when it comes to creating an episodic drama out of it.

Beyond updating the technology for today’s teen use of smartphones and Lyft, here are some of the best changes so far. While

'Godless': Why Netflix's Brutal, Timely Western Is a Must-See
"This here's the paradise of the locust, the lizard, the snake. It's the land of the bleeding rifle."

So snarls murderous outlaw Frank Griffin in the monologue that gives Godless, the new seven-episode Netflix miniseries premiering on November 22nd, its title. Leading a pack of marauders out to terrorize and slaughter every man, woman, and child that crosses their path, he’s not merely a creature of the American West in the 1880s. Griffin is some otherworldly manifestation of it, a reminder that anyone who ventures into this borderless, lawless

The Top Uses of Talking Heads Songs in Movies and TV

Say whatever you want to about Talking Heads but they had a very different sound that was a little difficult to get into but was the kind of thing that grew on you after a while and after so many times of hearing it. They debuted in 1977 and were a very popular band for about fourteen years before they hung up their instruments. They had a couple of reunions in 1996 and 2002 but since then they’ve been pretty well shelved. That’s kind of too bad since they were pioneers in a time when music was still going through

10 Things You Didn’t Know about “I, Robot”

I wouldn’t call I, Robot a dystopian film about some far flung, futuristic world where man and machine are at odds with one another because it’s not, at least not right away. I, Robot, is more or less a breakdown of the complex relationship between mankind and robots that goes into the prejudicial manner in which some human beings view robots and how that shapes their interactions with them. And to be honest it’s just one man’s prejudice, created by an accident that helped save his life, that really gets things going. Detective Spooner doesn’t trust the robots and so

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade 2017: Awkward Turkeys, Sexy Santa and More

Like when Al Roker asked Colin Donnell about his show, Chicago Ed. Or when Girl Meets World‘s Sabrina Carpenter got upstaged by the Pillsbury Doughboy. (Ok, maybe there was some drama, after all.)

The Top Five Bruno Kirby Movie Roles of His Career

Bruno Kirby is a great supporting actor, but that’s about where his skill stops. He hit that ceiling a while ago and without any disrespect to the man that’s where the talent he has is at its best. Kirby is the kind of guy you rely on to be there to bolster the other actors up, someone that doesn’t so much make people look better but rather helps the picture to flow the way it should. He’s played some very influential characters but the fact remains that he’s still a pillar in pretty much any movie he plays, whether it’s
