THE 2024 Golden Globes are upon us – and the ceremony’s host made a jaw-dropping joke that didn’t land.
The 81st Golden Globe Awards is hosted by comedian Jo Koy at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, California and airing live on CBS.
Taylor Swift is attending tonight’s ceremony in a green, metallic dress as she’s nominated in the new category recognizing cinematic and box office achievement for Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour.
She’s at the event without her boyfriend, NFL star Travis Kelce, but that didn’t stop the host from joking about her recent appearances at football games.
“The big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL? At the Golden Globes, we have fewer camera shots of Taylor Swift,” the comedian joked during the ceremony – and when the camera flashed to the singer, she remained stone-faced and took a sip of her drink.
“If Taylor Swift death stares could actually kill, Jo Koy would now be deceased,” Piers Morgan noted on X, formerly known as Twitter.
“Omg, Taylor Swift’s death stare before sipping champagne at the #GoldenGlobes perfectly embodies Jo Koy’s cringey hosting job,” another slammed the host.
Tonight’s awards so far have gone to first-time winners like Ali Wong for Beef, Da’Vine Joy Randolph for The Holdovers, and Elizabeth Debicki for The Crown. Robert Downey Jr. also took home the award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Oppenheimer.
