Jerrod Carmichael has taken center stage to host the 2023 Golden Globes tonight and as it turns out, he was paid a pretty hefty penny to be a part of one of the biggest nights in entertainment.
The actor and comedian started his opening monologue by formally introducing himself to everyone in the audience. And he did not shy away from the public controversy surrounding the awards in years past and the HFPA. “I’m your host Jerrod Carmichael, and I’ll tell you why I’m here. I’m here because I’m Black,” he said.
