Ricky Gervais to host Golden Globe Awards

The Office’s creator and executive producer Ricky Gervais will host the next Golden Globe awards show.

The British comedian will host the 67th Annual Golden Globes in January, PEOPLE has confirmed. “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 said Monday. “I have resisted many other offers like this, but there are just some things you don’t turn down.”

If this clip from last year’s Emmy Awards is any indication, Ricky should rock the GGs!
