Golden Globes Jimmy Fallon Host

Jimmy Fallon to Host Golden Globes

Prepare to have your Golden Globes slow-jammed.

The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon will host next year’s Golden Globes ceremony, NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt announced Tuesday during the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills.

Fallon previously emceed the 2010 Emmys. Ricky Gervais (Derek) handled Golden Globes hosting duties this year; ratings for the telecast fell to a six-year low.

“We’re thrilled to announce Jimmy as host of The 74th Annual Golden Globes,” Greenblatt said via statement. “This is the most spontaneous and uninhibited award show on television, and Jimmy’s playful, disarming comedic brilliance makes him the ideal host to enhance and elevate the sense of fun and irreverence that’s made the Golden Globes one of the premier events of the entire broadcast year.”

The three-hour Golden Globes broadcast will air Sunday, Jan. 8., at 8/7c.

    Thank God! So much better than Ricky Gervais.

  7. Phil says:

    Is it too late to get Rachel Bloom to co-host? THAT’s an awards show I’d like to see.

  8. Joey Padron says:

    Great choice! Excited to see him host the show. He did a great job hosting The Emmys.

    Definitely not watching now. I enjoyed Ricky Gervais, he was prickly and just didn’t care. Fallon is too shallow and fawns too much over his guests, imagine what hosting a show that includes an entire room full of A-listers…he’s going to have to wear Depends he’ll be so giddy!

    I’ll watch. I like Fallon. But I’ll forever and always be a huge advocate of the Tina/Amy duo.

  11. Now if only they had Justin Timberlake co-hosting with him, I’d be in heaven. Love them together.
