The late-night host was joined by his Saturday-Night Live friend Tina Fey, his friend Justin Timberlake and other nominees including Nicole Kidman, Ryan Reynolds, Amy Adams, Sarah Paulson and John Travolta the in the fascinating musical intro.

Fallon’s opening monologue did not go as smooth as the musical number. Moments after taking the stage, he burst out laughing, telling the audience his Teleprompter was not in good working condition. But he recovered quickly, making cracks about the 2016 US election.

The sociable host kept his cracks non-offensive. And while the audience was never going to get anything with the same taste of the previous host Ricky Gervais, Jimmy Fallon took a swipe at Ben Affleck, whose movie Batman Vs Superman received thumbs down the fans.

After its 2016 Emmy Awards’ sweep, The People v. O.J. Simpson, the night kicked off with wins for lead actress Sarah Paulson. After her Emmy win a few months ago, Sarah Paulson’s first-ever Golden Globe award did toast her famous portrayal of L.A County prosecutor Marcia Clark.
