Now that you’ve seen “The Tonight Show” star Jimmy Fallon host the 2017 Golden Globes on NBC, it’s time to sound off with how you think he did during his first time at bat. Was Fallon’s performance as Golden Globes host amazing, okay or terrible? Vote in our poll below!
This was Jimmy Fallon’s first time as the show’s ringleader after a successful stint hosting the Emmy Awards in 2010. The former “SNL” vet took over for recent Globes hosts Ricky Gervais (2010-12, 2016) and Tina Fey & Amy Poehler (2013-15). All three were known for their take-no-prisoners attitudes and made fun of the many celebs in attendance, including Meryl Streep, Mel Gibson, George Clooney and the “Sex and the City” gals.
Fallon started the show with a fantastic ode to “La La Land” that featured many of the year’s nominated stars and productions. He then came out on stage to a teleprompter that didn’t work, but he didn’t let that get to him and moved the show along like a true pro.
While Fallon received near-unanimous praise for his Emmys hosting stint six years ago, many fans wondered if Fallon’s “nice guy” demeanor made him unfit to host the raucous and oftentimes mean-spirited Globes.
