On January 8, there will a new host for The Golden Globes and this will be his first time. If his promos weren’t enough, he is clearly the guy for the job. Jimmy Fallon has mastered The Tonight Show monologue wonderfully. Even if Jimmy Kimmel and James Cordon hosted award show multiple times, Jimmy Fallon has the chops to sleigh his monologues and jokes.
Corden, who hosted the Tonys for CBS last June, is on board for The Grammys. Jimmy Fallon’s hosting is the latest in a string of late night TV host. Last year’s Golden Globe host, Ricky Gervais was a good host but wasn’t taken lightly. He had off colored language. Even if he seemed to have the chops to manage, many felt that he still wasn’t fit.
Jimmy Fallon, a past cast member of Saturday Night Live and the host of The Tonight Show is capable of hosting because of his mild mindedness and good guy character. With his hosting job, he should feel reassured of his popularity with an audience. Unlike Kimmel and Corden, he is very generational and treats people with a mix of good humor and praise. So, it is an obvious choice for Jimmy Fallon to host the upcoming Golden Globes.
As expressed on Variety, “Jimmy Fallon in primetime is pretty rare game,” says Paul Telegdy, NBC’s president of alternative and reality, who also oversees the network’s numerous specials. “He doesn’t do bundles of stuff in primetime, and I think that creates an excitement and anticipation for him. I know our audience is going to be extremely excited to see him.”
This wasn’t the first award show hosted by Fallon, as he had earned strong reviews when he hosted the Emmys in 2010. Further, when talking to Telegdy in Variety, he says about Fallon, “It’s an obvious choice for our company because he’s so stinking good at it and is such an adored talent on our air,” Telegdy says. “It was a difficult choice for Jimmy, though, because it’s an incredibly hard job to take on when he’s in the middle of producing his show every night for us.”
Fallon is so globally known that he makes a good choice. His years on Saturday Night Live have prepared him well. Fallon began to promote The Golden Globes after Thanksgiving. The promo even featured Questlove. NBC will continue promoting The Golden Globes during its holiday specials and NFL games events. All in all, Jimmy Fallon will be in preparation.
