Welcome to the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards, and your host, Ricky Gervais. You may know him as the man who created The Office, he notes. Or, no you don't, you think Steve Carell created ... See full synopsis »
Well, thank goodness for humor - Jimmy Fallon turned what is frequently a snooze fest of gratuitous back slapping, into a pretty fun and entertaining night. His humor is very fresh and young and at times very silly and self-deprecating.
Can you see an Oscars hosting gig in his future? I know I can. Whereas people like Leno and Letterman have their core following in late night, Jimmy is new enough to still be building his so a lot of people I know really had no idea what to expect from his Emmy's hosting. They were all pleasantly surprised.
A big favorite of every single person I spoke to about the Emmy's was the opening number - it was Glee-ful, it was tongue in cheek, and it was just plain fun. It's the kind of fun you get from his late night show, but you have to have Ti-vo, a DVR or be a night owl like me to see it - he's on after the so-so Leno show.
Ten out of ten for Jimmy for making the Emmy's way more watchable this year - and we loved the fact that you made Tom Selleck giggle by claiming he was your long lost Dad and giving him a huge hug - hilarious.
Now all we need is a new movie for Jimmy - it can be straight acting or comedy - he can do both!
