Koy will host the three-hour broadcast for the first time, following fellow comedian Jerrod Carmichael, who hosted the show last year.
“We are thrilled to have Jo host the 81st Annual Golden Globe Awards and bring his infectious energy and relatable humor to kick off Hollywood’s award season,” Helen Hoehne, Golden Globes president, said in a statement at the time of the announcement. “We can’t wait to see what he has in store for the stars in the room and a global audience.”
“I’ve stepped onto a lot of stages around the world in my career, but this one is going to be extra special,” added Koy. “I’m so excited to be hosting the Golden Globes this year. This is that moment where I get to make my Filipino family proud.”
The 2024 Golden Globes will air live on CBS and stream on Paramount+ on Sunday (Jan. 7) starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. Before the big event, see below for five things to know about this year’s host, Jo Koy.
