Comedian Jo Koy will host the Golden Globe Awards

Comedian Jo Koy will host 81st Annual Golden Globe Awards.

Koy, 52, previously starred in the comedy “Easter Sunday,” and in 2021 he published his autobiography, “Mixed Plate: Chronicles of an All-American Combo.”

It will be the stand-up comedian’s first time hosting the show.

“I’ve stepped onto a lot of stages around the world in my career, but this one will be extra special,” he said in a statement. “I’m so excited to host the Golden Globes this year. This is the moment to make my Filipino family proud. Mahal Kita (Google it)!”

Known as the official kickoff to Hollywood’s 2024 awards season, the Golden Globes honor the best in both television and film. The nominees for the Golden Globes were revealed earlier this month. “Barbenheimer” dominated the list, with nine nods “Barbie” and eight for “Oppenheimer”. The final season of “Succession” also led with nine nominations.

The nominations in 27 categories were announced by Cedric “The Entertainer” and Wilmer Valderrama, and live streamed the presentation. Nominations in 10 of the categories were also broadcast live on “CBS Mornings.”

The 2024 Golden Globe Awards ceremony will take place on Sunday, January 7 from 8:00 PM to 11:00 PM ET (5:00 PM to 8:00 PM PT), and will be broadcast live on CBS as part of a new deal between the Golden Globes and the network.

The ceremony will also be available to stream Paramount+ and CBS app. Paramount Global is the parent company of CBS.

The Golden Globes come to CBS after its longtime relationship with NBC ended and as the awards show works to rebuild its credibility under new management following a highly publicized scandal and boycott over claims of racism and ethical lapses in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which organized the Globes and voted for years to determine their nominees and winners.
