  • Jerrod Carmichael will host the Golden Globes on January 10, 2023 on NBC.
  • Jerrod is a comedian who hosted Saturday night live for the first time in April 2022.
  • The 2023 Golden Globes will mark a return to television after NBC refused to air it in 2022 due to the HFPA’s lack of diversity.

A year after NBC decided not to air the Golden Globes because a Los Angeles Times Report of troubles within the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Globes will return to TV – with Jerrod Carmichael as host. “We are thrilled to have Jerrod Carmichael host the historic 80th Golden Globe Awards,” he said Helen Hoehnethe HFPA President, in a statement obtained by PERSONS. “His comedic talent entertained and thrilled audiences while providing thought-provoking moments that are so relevant in our day and age. Jerrod is the special talent this show is calling for to kick off awards season.”

The 79th Annual Golden Globes took place in January 2022, with the awards being announced via social media. NBC’s decision not to air the program was in response to the Times Report claiming there are no black journalists among HFPA members amid other ethical issues.

Although the HFPA promised to implement reforms, the 2023 event is likely to be mired in one of the HFPA’s biggest controversies. Brendan Fraserwho was acclaimed for his performance in Darren Aronofsky’s Best Actor The whaleblamed the former HFPA President Philip Berk from sexually abused in 2003. With Brendan vowing not to attend the Golden Globes even if he’s nominated, his absence will be an embarrassment the HFPA – and host Jerrod Carmichael – will have to reconcile.

With that in mind, here’s what you should know about the 2023 Golden Globes host.
