It seems the appropriate choice that “The Tonight Show”‘s Jimmy Fallon would host the 74th annual Golden Globe awards — he’s certainly qualified for the role.

Fallon has hosted an enormous share of TV specials, as well as an array of MTV award shows, but the funny man still managed to catch us off-guard with unapologetically crude humour.

After surviving technical difficulties in opening monologue, Fallon made President-elect Donald Trump the butt of some cringeworthy jokes; welcoming the audience to the Golden Globes, which he called “one of the few places left where America still honors the popular vote.”

After introducing an early lot of nominees, he landed on “Game of Thrones” and compared Trump to one of the show’s most hated characters.

“Game of Thrones,” he said, had “so many plot twists and shocking twists, a lot of people have wondered what it would’ve been like if King Joffrey had lived.”

The 42-year-old continued: “Well, in 12 days we’re going to find out.”

Trump’s inauguration is set for January 20.

He didn’t stop there, Fallon also teased at Trump’s difficulty to find performers for the inauguration ceremony.

“The film ‘Florence Foster Jenkins’ is nominated,” He said. “The character has been dubbed the world’s worst opera singer and even she turned down performing at Donald Trump’s inauguration. It’s tough to book.”

It’s possible Fallon might have been making up for his “Tonight Show” interview last September with Trump, in which critics said the host was too gentle with the then-presidential candidate.
