Jimmy Fallon will be in charge of the 2017 Golden Globe Awards.

Fallon will host the three-hour ceremony, which is scheduled to air on January 8, NBC said.

The Tonight Show host has a playful humour that is a good match for the "spontaneous and uninhibited" awards show, NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said.

Fallon takes over from last year's host, Ricky Gervais, whose biting style of humour brought groans as well as laughs.
