“If I hit somebody, it’s a very subtle hit, and everyone’s in on the joke,” he tells The Hollywood Reporter.
“I want to make sure everyone’s laughing and having a good time. And I’m hopefully going to book the people in this crowd the next week, so I’ll be edgy, but it’s all in good fun, and I know how far I can take it.”
Fallon also promised to go easy on the Donald Trump jokes.
“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,” he said. “It’s the first and maybe the last party that we’ll have in 2017.”
The January 8 telecast marks Fallon’s first turn as host of Globes.
NBC has been trying to recruit him for years, but the former SNL star says he wanted to spend his time focusing on THE TONIGHT SHOW instead.
“That’s my job in the first place, and I just want to make sure I have a job,” he joked. “But I kind of know what I’m doing now, and I thought this would be the perfect year.”
Each year THE GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS celebrated the best in television and movies as voted on by members of The Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
THE 74TH ANNUAL GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS airs live from the International Ballroom at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, January 8 on NBC.
