The online response has once again united society in our shared annoyance…

Jo Koy hosted the 2024 Golden Globes, and I know what you’re thinking: Who the f*ck is Jo Koy? Well, his name is now all over celebrity news headlines for totally bombing on stage during the award ceremony.

According to celebrity rumors, the Golden Globes had a tough time finding someone to take on the hosting duties, and after being turned down by multiple people, they ended up with him as their last choice.

To put it kindly, his performance was insanely bad, and the star-studded audience responded to his opening monologue with a chorus of groans, boos, and eye-rolls.

Taylor Swift, who was nominated in the brand new category of Box Office and Cinematic Success, was the target of a joke, and she did not find it amusing at all.

He stated, referencing the NFL games that had just ended, “As you know, we came on after a football doubleheader,” Koy said. “The big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL. On the Golden Globes, we have fewer camera shots of Taylor Swift, I swear.”

The camera then panned to Taylor Swift, who had absolutely no reaction and just sipped her drink.

The problem with this joke is how unoriginal it is. It’s the lowest-hanging fruit, with no real punchline because it’s so predictable. However, there is a silver lining: the online response has once again united society in our shared annoyance.

T. Swift wasn’t the only one who wasn’t laughing. Selena Gomez put her head in her hands as Koy made an in-poor-taste reference to the Barbie movie. He stated, “The key moment in ‘Barbie’ is when she goes from perfect beauty to bad breath, cellulite, and flat feet — or what casting directors call character acting,” Koy said.

This is the moment when the audience began to audibly express their displeasure, causing the host to deflect and blame his writers for his lackluster performance on stage.

It’s highly unlikely that Jo Kay will be asked to host the Golden Globes in 2025, and it’s safe to say that no one is disappointed by this.
