Stephen: Ricky Gervais returning to host Golden Globes
On Friday, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced that Ricky Gervais would be returning to host his first Golden Globes ceremony since 2016. The British funnyman also hosted the telecast from 2010 to 2012, where he drew mixed reactions for his vicious roasts of celebrities like Mel Gibson and Ben Affleck. On Tuesday, Gervais told Reuters, perhaps jokingly, “This is the very last time I’m doing this.” This year’s Golden Globes will air on NBC on January 5. Tom Hanks will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award, while the Carol Burnett Award will be bestowed on Ellen DeGeneres.
