The Golden Globe Awards has found its host: Jimmy Fallon!
The Tonight Show host will lead the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards, set to air live coast-to-coast on Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017 from 8-11 p.m. ET, NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt announced Tuesday at the summer Television Critics Association press tour.
“I know he will bring his unique energy and wit to the show. The Hollywood Foreign Press is thrilled and we’re thrilled as well that he wanted to do it this year,” Greenblatt told reporters.
Fallon is a no-brainer for NBC to host the Globes, previously emceeing the Emmy Awards on the network in 2010. Fallon will have a lot to draw from for his new hosting gig. With Fallon’s penchant for viral videos -- and the popular Lip Sync Battle series, which became its own TV show -- it’s pretty clear the Globes will be one big party!
