Jimmy Fallon to host 2017 Golden Globe Awards
Slow jam this news: Jimmy Fallon will host the 2017 Golden Globe Awards.
The announcement was made Tuesday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Beverly Hills.
Fallon took to Twitter shortly after the news broke: “I’m so excited to be hosting The Golden Globes in January.” Followed by: “I’m really looking forward to spending time with the Hollywood Foreign Press before Donald Trump has them all deported.”
The “Tonight Show” host follows Ricky Gervais, who emceed the ceremony earlier this year. Fallon’s former “Saturday Night Live” cast mates Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted in 2015.
Fallon isn’t a newbie to awards hosting, of course. He previously helmed the 2010 Emmy Awards, when the ceremony aired on NBC.
The Golden Globes are set to air live on both coasts from the Beverly Hilton on Jan. 8, 2017.
