Koy kicked off the 2024 event referencing Hollywood’s Olympic madness, joking about the upcoming film nominations. The stand-up comedian compared Barry Keoghan’s penis in “Saltburn” to Bradley Cooper’s artificial nose in “Maestro,” quipping that “Oprah Winfrey” needs “one more hour” and calling “Barbie” a film about a “plastic doll with big breasts,” resulting in Margot Robbie and the film’s director Greta Gerwig expressing displeasure.

Expressing attraction to the Barbie doll seemed strange,” Koy remarked while turning towards “Barbie” star Ryan Gosling. “It’s just about your eyes, Ryan.” Koy sensed that some jokes were falling flat. “I got the program 10 days ago! You want a perfect monologue? Yo, shut up. You’re making fun of me, okay?” he jokingly rebuffed the audience.

“Take it slow, I’ve written some of these, and these are the ones you’re laughing at,” he said about the jokes.

Perhaps the night’s biggest blunder occurred when Koy made a joke about Taylor Swift. “As you know, we came after a football double-header. Big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL. Golden Globes, after the football double-header, we have fewer camera shots of Taylor Swift, I swear,” he said.

It seems that Swift did not react, took a sip of her drink, and appeared displeased. “Excuse me for that,” Koy responded. Fans on social media continued to roast Koy throughout the evening.

A former user wrote, “Jesus, during that monologue, I was 15 years old, and I’ve never been so happy seeing Jared Leto.” “I don’t intend to be dramatic, but this Golden Globes host is the worst I’ve ever seen, saying something from someone who watched the show hosted by Julie Chen,” added Andy Herren of “Big Brother.”

One person posted a moment with Robbie’s character, asking, “Do you ever think about dying?” Others suggested that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey resume hosting duties for the Golden Globes or proposed alternative options.

A former user wrote with a picture of Polar and Fey, “Remembering them right now.” Another jokingly said, “Never send a man to do a woman’s job “GoldenGlobes”.

Franklin Leonard, founder of the Black List, possibly referencing the recent viral interview of Cat Williams on “Club Shay Shay,” wrote, “Just spread chaos and let Cat Williams host “GoldenGlobes“.

Another fan suggested that “Fire Island” stars Bowen Yang and Matt Rogers could have done the job. “Were they busy?” they tweeted alongside a picture of both. There’s always next year.
