"We're so excited to have Jerrod Carmichael host the historic 80th Golden Globe Awards," HFPA president Helen Hoehne said in a statement. "His comedic talents have entertained and thrilled audiences while providing thought-provoking moments that are so important in the times we live. Jerrod is the kind of talent this show calls for to kick off the awards season."

Carmichael is best known for his sitcom "The Carmichael Show" and for his three HBO comedy specials -- the most recent of which, 2022's "Rothaniel," featured him coming out as gay and won him an Emmy.

The nominations for the 2023 Golden Globes will be announced Dec. 12 by father-daughter duo George Lopez and Mayan Lopez.

It was announced in September that the Golden Globes would be returning to television in 2023 after being sidelined this year due to allegations of racism within the HFPA.

The 2022 ceremony was held as a private event in January after NBC refused to air the awards show following a 2021 report from the Los Angeles Times that found there were no Black members in the HFPA, an 87-person group of international journalists who decide both the nominees as well as the winners.

The HFPA promised "transformational changes" to the organization in the wake of the controversy, vowing to boost minority membership and representation and to have more transparency within the organization.

In September, the HFPA added 103 non-member voters to its ranks, now numbering 200, noting that its voting body is now 52% female and 51.5% racially and ethnically diverse. The group's voters now represent 62 countries around the world.

The 80th annual Golden Globes will take place Jan. 10 beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT and will air live on NBC and stream live on Peacock.
