Ricky Gervais to Host 67th Annual Golden Globes
Ricky Gervais has been tapped to host the 67th Annual Golden Globes on Jan. 17, PEOPLE reports.
Not only is this the biggest Hollywood celebration of the industry, which includes both film and TV, but also an environment where I feel I can get free reign as a host," Gervais told PEOPLE. "I have resisted many other offers like this, but there are just some things you don't turn down."
This is the first time the telecast has had a host since 1995. Gervais is a four-time Emmy winner and has also won three Golden Globes.
The Golden Globes will be broadcast live on NBC on Jan. 17 from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles (8 p.m. ET). Nominations will be announced on Dec. 15.
