They hosted for three time in succession with their own unique approach. Ricky Gervais has also been a thrill with no nonsense jokes on the expense of the Press and the celebrities. It got a little awkward this year too when he kept calling the Press out for asking him to host again.
So the Press and NBC needed a friendly and fresh face on the stage. There was no one better than Jimmy Fallon. The host of the most watched late night show on TV, Jimmy has a very happy go lucky ann friendly approach towards the stars. He is spontaneous, a comedian and a performer who can be expected to host the Golden Globes in a fun and interactive way.
NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt that Jimmy will be hosting the Golden Globes in January at the network's Television Critics Association Summer Tour.
Jimmy confirmed his hosting duties in the upcoming year on his Twitter saying ‘I'm so excited to be hosting The Golden Globes in January’ he then added a pun towards Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in a following tweet saying, ‘And I'm really looking forward to spending time with the Hollywood Foreign Press before Donald Trump has them all deported.’
