81st Golden Globe Awards

Finding a host for 81 was not easyscheduled tribe This year’s Golden Globe Awards is the first iteration of the awards show run by Dick Clark Productions, which took control over from the scandal-plagued Hollywood Foreign Press Association. (Full disclosure: Rolling stoneIts parent company, PMC, owns Dick Clark Productions.)

Several high-profile comedians reportedly turned down the event, possibly due to lack of preparation time given the end of the actors’ strike and the HFPA’s past, including former Oscars hosts Chris Rock, Ali Wong, and the trio . Will Arnett, Jason Bateman and Sean Hayes, who co-host the “Smartless” podcast. On December 21, stand-up comic Joe Koy was announced as its final-time host – a few weeks before the January 7 ceremony, which was broadcast for the first time on CBS. And the rush work was visible during Coy’s monologue.

“The moment I signed the contract… I locked myself in a room and started watching everything. As my family clinked glasses of champagne and celebrated the New Year, my family watched oppenheimer,” Coy said. “I loved Oppenheimer. I just found one complaint: [It] Another hour was needed because I felt like it needed some more backstory. My New Year’s resolution for 2024 is to be fulfilled oppenheimer In 2025. I am in love oppenheimer – Especially the first season. As the camera panned to Christopher Nolan, Coy said, “This is so stupid…”

Things got worse from there, when he moved to another part of Barbenheimer.

,oppenheimer And barbie are competing for cinematic box office achievement,” Koy offered. “oppenheimer is based on a 724-page Pulitzer Prize-winning book about the Manhattan Project, and is based on Barbie, a plastic doll with large breasts – which drew boos and a few jeers from the crowd.

Coy continued: “Critical moment barbie This is when she turns from perfect beauty to bad breath, cellulite and flat feet – or what casting directors call a ‘character actor.'”

When the joke drew groans and a few laughs, Coy placed the blame on his joke writers.

“Some I wrote, some other people wrote,” he explained, adding, “Yo, I got this show ten days ago! Do you want a complete monologue? shut up! You’re kidding me, right? I wrote some of these, and they’re the ones you’re laughing at.


There were some really funny jokes buried in Coy’s monologue, including a funny jab at 80-year-old Robert De Niro about how he got his partner pregnant at such an old age, but Coy had already lost the crowd.

However, it’s hard to blame the guy, because not only was he hosting an awards ceremony for the first time, but he also Very Very little time to organize your work.
