Anthony Anderson Shares His Thoughts About Jo Koy’s Golden Globes
Just before he was set to host the 2024 Emmy Awards, Anthony Anderson shared his thoughts about Jo Koy’s performance at the Golden Globes. Koy received heavy backlash after he made a joke about Taylor Swift.
“Everyone’s entitled to their opinion,” Anderson said. “There’s going to be criticism. No matter if you do great, if you do bad. You can’t please everyone. But it’s a job that needs to be done. It’s a job suited for the best to do it.”
Anthony Anderson pointed out that the award show organizers are responsible for picking the hosts. “The Academy, the Emmys, the Oscars, the Golden Globes – they pick who they feel is best to do the job. And that’s what we do.”
