Golden Globes Cold Open Video With Jimmy Fallon Spoofs “La La Land” – WATCH!
The Golden Globes had its first-ever cold open on Sunday with 2017 host Jimmy Fallon and a number of celebrities. Watch below!
The skit opened with an adoring parody of the opening of La La Land and its song, “Another Day of Sun.” Fallon was joined by Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, Sarah Paulson, Sterling K. Brown, John Travolta, Evan Rachel Wood, Rami Malek, and the “Strangers Thing” cast. In a spoof of other scenes from the critically-acclaimed film, Fallon played piano in front of Ryan Reynolds as he sang new lyrics to “City of Stars.” In this case, Tina Fey was in Emma Stone’s role, but it was Justin Timberlake with whom Fallon ended up falling in love.
Fallon revealed just days before the 74th Golden Globes Awards that he was working on a special way to kick off the show. “I’ve been writing jokes and planning on what the opening is going to be,” he told People. “We’ve been shooting. It’s the first time ever the Golden Globes is having a cold open — like a filmed piece — which I’m excited they let me do.”
The comedian further teased, “There’s a lot of people who are going to be involved with the opening. I don’t want to name names or spoil anything. But Ryan Reynolds… Someone’s going to be in there. Tina Fey. Uh, but it’s going to be good. Justin Timberlake — and Kit Harington.”
Fallon certainly made good on his promise, with the sketch featuring those names and more. Check out the full video below!
