Following a great musical opening number, Golden Globes host Jimmy Fallon struggled with a malfunctioning teleprompter as he started the show.
JIMMY FALLON TELEPROMPTER FAIL
The crowd was still applauding Fallon’s musical opener when he began his show somewhat awkwardly. “This is uh, welcome to the Golden Globes. Already the teleprompter’s down so this is a great way to start the show,” Fallon sputtered, though remained calm. “I can do impressions, what do we do here, I can do something. Cut to Justin Timberlake please.”
After mentioning another monitor was on its way, Fallon proceeded to wing his monologue, with the crowd laughing and cheering him on. “This is what happens at the Golden Globes. Already you have your Golden globes moment,” he said. “It’s already a gif, I’m happy didn’t trip.”
Finally, the problems were fixed, and Fallon could start the show as had been planned. He opened with a political joke, “this is the Golden Globes, one of the few places left where America still honors the popular vote,” and of course the Hollywood crowd loved it. On with the show.
