Host Jimmy Fallon is ready to light up the stage at the 74th Golden Globe Awards, airing Sunday, January 8th on NBC.
Jimmy Fallon hosts the 2017 Golden Globe Awards. The three-hour ceremony serves as the official kickoff to awards season, with winners in 25 categories – 14 in film and 11 in television.
Fallon is a veteran of many Golden Globes, having presented awards in a variety of categories, the most recent in 2014 when, together with Golden Globe nominee Melissa McCarthy, he presented the Golden Globe for Best Performance by An Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television to Golden Globe winner and Cecil B. deMille recipient Michael Douglas.
“We’re thrilled to announce Jimmy as host of ‘The 74th Annual Golden Globes,’” said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt. “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.”
“Jimmy Fallon is an exceptionally talented and dynamic entertainer and we couldn’t be more excited that he’ll be hosting the 2017 Golden Globes,” said Lorenzo Soria, President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. “His charm, wit and incredible spontaneity will play exceedingly well both to everyone at the show as well as the millions watching at home from around the world.”
“Jimmy Fallon’s brand of comedy will continue the tradition of cutting-edge excitement viewers have come to expect from the host of the Golden Globes,” said Allen Shapiro, CEO of dick clark productions.
The 74th Golden Globe Awards take place at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.
