NBC has unveiled the first promo clip highlighting 2017 Golden Globes host Jimmy Fallon (watch above). Fallon is joined by The Roots’ drummer and “Tonight Show” buddy Questlove in the funny trailer that renames the Golden Globes as “The Old Globs” after a Christmas light debacle. How do you think Fallon will do as host? Vote in our poll below.
The Golden Globes, which honor the best in TV and film from 2016, air January 8 on the peacock network and will be Fallon’s first time as the show’s ringleader after a successful stint hosting the Emmy Awards in 2010. Fallon takes over for recent Globes hosts Ricky Gervais (2010-12, 2016) and Tina Fey & Amy Poehler (2013-15).
Fallon received near-unanimous praise for his Emmys hosting stint six years ago, but is he too “nice” of a guy to take stabs at top Hollywood stars as Gervais, Fey and Poehler all did recently? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below our poll. And then take a look at what Gold Derby is predicting to win at 2017 Golden Globes.
