Jo Koy’s Golden Globes joke about Taylor Swift has stirred reactions on social media, following Swift’s appearance at the awards ceremony where she was nominated in the new blockbuster film category for “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour.” Koy, making a playful jab during the ceremony, compared the Golden Globes to the NFL, humorously noting fewer camera shots of Swift.
“We came on after a football doubleheader,” Koy quipped. “The big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL… On the Golden Globes, we have fewer camera shots of Taylor Swift.” Cameras captured Swift’s reaction as she casually took a sip of her drink, maintaining a composed and seemingly unbothered demeanor.
“Sorry about that,” Koy added, acknowledging the potentially awkward moment.
Swift’s presence at the Golden Globes raised questions, considering her consistent attendance at Kansas City Chiefs’ games. The singer, currently dating NFL star Travis Kelce, has been a regular at the team’s matches throughout the football season, attracting attention from the NFL and criticism for the frequent coverage of her appearances.
In response, the NFL explained their focus on Swift, stating, “The Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce news has been a pop cultural moment we’ve leaned into in real-time, as it’s an intersection of sport and entertainment, and we’ve seen an incredible amount of positivity around the sport.”
The organization clarified that their content predominantly remains centered on the game, players, and various initiatives, despite occasional shifts in focus based on cultural events.
