Jimmy Fallon is super psyched about his Golden Globe Awards hosting gig this Sunday on NBC, and the late night host's loose lips have let some interesting tidbits slip about what viewers can expect from this year's telecast.
TooFab mashed up the best of te best revelations from the funnyman. Here's what we know so far:
Fallon revealed that he likes the Golden Globes because "it's like a mixtape of award shows."Fallon told Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday that he likes the Golden Globes because "it's the best of movies and it's the best of TV shows and the best of music so if you haven't seen that movie, you don't have to worry because something from 'The Walking Dead' will come on soon."
The show's opener is going to be HUGE. "It's gonna be fun. We have a really fun opening. A lot of cameos," he also told DeGeneres. On Wednesday night, Fallon told People: "There's a lot of people who are going to be involved with the opening. I don't want to name names or spoil anything. But Ryan Reynolds ... Someone's going to be in there. Tina Fey. Uh, but it's going to be good. ... Kit Harrington." He also revealed to Us Magazine that the opener would be a spoof on one of the nominated movies. "[The opening number] is spoofing one of the nominated movies, and we have a lot of fun cameos, we have a lot of good favorites," he said. "You're going to watch it and say, 'Oh, I can't believe they're in this — whoa, this is cool! Oh that person!' A lot of fun cameos — fun and friendly and joyous and cool. It will put you in a good mood. I'm excited."
Expect Trump jokes. Fallon told The Hollywood Reporter that the Golden Globes might be the first and final feel-good time of the year. "[Expect Trump jokes]," Fallon said. "The whole night won't focus on that, but it will be a week before the inauguration, so it will be on everyone's mind. It's the first and maybe the last party that we'll have in 2017." However, Fallon told TODAY that the show wouldn't be overtly laden down with political rhetoric. Fallon joked, "I heard that Trump will be live tweeting during the show -— '#unfunny,' I know." Of his upcoming gig, Fallon said, "It's not heavily political. You know, none of my stuff is that political. There's other ways to be creative with that."
He might collaborate with BFF Justin Timberlake, who's nominated for a Globe this year. Fallon also told THR: "I don't want to give anything away. I want to have fun with as many people as I possibly can, but I'd like everyone to be a little surprised going in. We'll try to be clever. And I think you'll see a lot of my friends.
Fallon is surprisingly nervous about the hosting duties. "[I'm] so excited, [but] I'm always nervous," Fallon told Us. "I never know what's going to happen. I always get butterflies. This show is the first time where the guests are my audience! So I know they're good guests, but I don't know how they'll be as audience members. Hopefully they're laughing and happy and having a good time, because everyone looks better when they smile!" Fallon even admits that he's gone to friends and former co-stars Fey and Amy Poehler to get over his nerves. "I've talked to all of them and I asked them all for advice. They all basically said the same thing, which is, 'Jimmy, you host a show five nights a week. I don't think you're going to have a problem. You know what hosting is more than we do.' They're like, 'We're movie stars. We're TV stars. You're a host. Don't ask us for advice, you moron.'"
