Awards season will be off to a mild, non-offensive start as Jimmy Fallon takes the stage hosting the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards.
Facebook will host exclusive 360-degree video of the entire Golden Globes red carpet from the point of view of several celebs and attendees, including Felicity Huffman, this year's Miss Golden Globes - Sylvester Stallone's daughters Sophia, Sistine and Scarlet - and HFPA president Lorenzo Soria. While the focus has obviously always been on honouring achievements in filmmaking, the reason the show was created in the first place is both heartbreaking and handsome. Fallon follows three-time hosts Ricky Gervais and former Saturday Night Live castmates Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.
Unlike the uber-formal awards ceremony that is the Oscars, the Golden Globes are a light-hearted and fun-filled affair that make for an extremely entertaining watch.
He further explained: "I thought, 'When that call comes in I am going to be staring down the barrel of something nasty.' We have an 8-week-old and one under 2, so it was a bit of a circus, and I could hear my phone ringing, so I know something really bad or really great had happened because my phone isn't that active".
Sly's attractive daughters, Sophia, 20, Sistine, 18, and Scarlet, 14, have already been announced as the co-holders of the Miss Golden Globe title. Still, he will probably stick with making fun of the celebrities in the room and moving away from politics, like those that characterized the Emmy Awards. And, for another, 2017 could be the year that genre TV gets its due: Westworld and Stranger Things are both strong contenders for best television drama, up against Netflix's historical drama The Crown, NBC's This Is Us, and omnipresent Game of Thrones.
Jimmy Fallon will host the Golden Globes for the first time on Sunday, and he's gathered some of Hollywood's big guns to give him a hand.
Fallon revealed that he likes the Golden Globes because "it's like a mixtape of award shows". There's not that much point staying up to watch: no United Kingdom channel is broadcasting the three-hour long ceremony itself, although it is being shown on NBC in the US.
The contenders for best animated motion picture are "Kubo and the Two Strings", "Moana", "My Life as a Zucchini", "Sing" and "Zootopia". He's hinted at an opening number spoofing a nominated film, with cameos galore.
It's been a remarkable year for TV and movies, which makes choosing a victor all the more challenging.
