“Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon has been tapped to host the 2017 Golden Globe Awards telecast.

He follows in the footsteps of Ricky Gervais, who hosted the telecast four times — from 2010-2012 and again in 2016. Fallon’s previous hosting duties include the 2010 Emmy Awards.

“We’re thrilled to announce Jimmy as host of ‘The 74th Annual Golden Globes,’” said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt, in the official announcement today. “This is the most spontaneous and uninhibited award show on television, and Jimmy’s playful, disarming comedic brilliance makes him the ideal host to enhance and elevate the sense of fun and irreverence that’s made the Golden Globes one of the premier events of the entire broadcast year.”

The star-studded ceremony telecast will be held on Jan. 8, 2017, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. It will air live on NBC beginning at 7 p.m.
