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!

  1. Very cool! Here’s hoping we get another classic moment between Ricky and Steve like this and last year’s Emmys!

  2. Awesome.

    Ricky is truly one of the most talented and funny people alive.

    Hopefully one day we’ll be lucky enough to see him on the show in some capacity.

  3. YES! This will be awesome. I love Ricky, he always makes me laugh, and that clip never fails to make me laugh. Oh BOY censors are going to be on overload. Score.

  4. That is so exciting! I will be watching then :)

    and I love that clip! Steve’s wife can’t keep a straight face haha

  5. I can probably watch that clip from the Emmys over and over for the next 20 years and it would crack me up every time.

  6. I don’t know how Steve Carell was able to keep a straight face through that whole bit! Just seeing Ricky Gervais makes me smile, hearing him talk makes me laugh, and when HE laughs, I completely lose it!!

  7. Well, it’s about time! Ricky is most definitely one of the funniest people on the planet; he is certain to make this a Golden Globes to remember. I can’t wait!

  8. That’s awesome! Ricky Gervais is always the best part of any award show. He’s hilarious! Totally love that clip with him and Steve, too. Hopefully they’ll have more screen time together at the GGs.

  9. awesome blossom!!! i will watch this award show from start to credits, and not just for the fashion
    i hope us sensitive Yanks don’t find his humor too awkward…

  10. I’m so excited about this! I’ll probably watch the whole thing then, instead of turning it off after my favorites lose.
