NBC announced that Jimmy Fallon -- not Ricky Gervais, nor the dynamic duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler -- would become the network's next host of the Golden Globes.

From the press release, which accompanied NBC's turn at the summer TV Critics Association (TCA) press tour today:

“We’re thrilled to announce Jimmy as host of ‘The 74th Annual Golden Globes,’” said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt. “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.”

“Jimmy Fallon is an exceptionally talented and dynamic entertainer and we couldn’t be more excited that he’ll be hosting the 2017 Golden Globes,” said Lorenzo Soria, President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. “His charm, wit and incredible spontaneity will play exceedingly well both to everyone at the show as well as the millions watching at home from around the world.”

“Jimmy Fallon’s brand of comedy will continue the tradition of cutting-edge excitement viewers have come to expect from the host of the Golden Globes,” said Allen Shapiro, CEO of dick clark productions.

The 74th Golden Globe Awards will air on NBC live coast-to-coast from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills on Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017 from 8-11 p.m. ET (5-8 p.m. PT).

Fallon previously has hosted the Emmys when they aired on NBC, and the MTV Movie Awards and the MTV Video Music Awards before that.
