And the Host of the 2023 Golden Globes Is…

The host for the 2023 Golden Globe Awards has finally been chosen and it will be none other than (drumroll please) Jerrod Carmichael.

According to Deadline, the actor and comedian will host the awards ceremony on January 10, 2023, at 8 PM. The televised event will take place at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, and will air live on NBC and Peacock. 

The Golden Globes took a year-long break after growing backlash due to a lack of diversity and inclusion (as well as conflicts of interest) among the Hollywood Foreign Press Association members.

Helen Hoehne, who is the President of the HFPA, released an official statement about the exciting news. “We’re so excited to have Jerrod Carmichael host the historic 80th Golden Globe Awards. His comedic talents have entertained and thrilled audiences while providing thought-provoking moments that are so important in the times we live,” she said. “Jerrod is the special kind of talent this show calls for to kick off the awards season.”

Jesse Collins (Executive Producer and CEO of Jesse Collins Entertainment) shared a separate statement about the announcement, writing, “Jerrod is a phenomenal talent with a fresh perspective and excellent comedic style. We’re all thrilled to have him host this year’s show.”

Carmichael has certainly made a name for himself in Hollywood. He released three stand-up comedy specials on HBO: Love at the Store (2014), 8 (2017), and Rothaniel (2022). The 35-year-old also co-produced, co-wrote and starred in the NBC series The Carmichael Show. And he won an Emmy award this year for his writing in Rothaniel.
