Ricky Gervais is back.

The comedian is returning as host of the Golden Globes for the fifth time.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association made the announcement Tuesday morning.

“Once again, they’ve made me an offer I can’t refuse. But this is the very last time I’m doing this, which could make for a fun evening,” Gervais said in a statement.

HFPA president Lorenzo Soria said, “When Ricky Gervais is at the helm of the Golden Globes Awards, we can always expect the unexpected. We’re excited to see it all unfold on Jan. 5!”

Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg debuted as co-hosts of the 2019 Globes. The NBC telecast averaged 18.6 million viewers in live-plus-same-day Nielsens, delivering the biggest audience for a primetime telecast, excluding news and sports, in 10 months, since the prior March’s Oscars, according to the HFPA.

Gervais hosted the Globes in 2010-12 and returned in 2016.

“There is always a palpable electricity in the room when Ricky takes the Globes stage. His return as master of ceremonies at the Golden Globes is much anticipated,” said NBC Entertainment chairman Paul Telegdy. “It always makes for an unexpected evening. We can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve.”

The 77th annual Golden Globes air live on NBC on Jan. 5 from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. Awards are handed out in 25 categories, with 14 for film and 11 for television.

The king is back. Admittedly, he wasn't as good the 4th time as he was in the first 3 do hopefully he reverts to form. Too bad he will never get to host the Oscars, would be hilarious.

So OT, are you excited for Ricky's return as host of the Golden Globes? Or is this just further evidence of Master_Live's infatuation with Hollywood?

I enjoy some of his soundbites after the show, but I never watch awards shows of any kind. His best joke was when when he announced Bruce Willis as Ashton Kutcher's dad during the Ashton/Demi days. Bruce did not look like he enjoyed that one.

Nothing shocking about stating the obvious.

Like clockwork.

I'll watch his jokes afterwards if I hear they are good.

I haven't watched an awards show for at least 15 years and likely won't again

Meh.

So while there might be a few annoying libtards making these articles, remember it's mostly liberals making the comedy itself. Like Ricky, who is a liberal. Not many major or successful league right wing comedians or comedy shows.

But yeah those few leftists are dumb as a brick. Just imagine if they got as triggered as the right and especially Trump does over late night comedy shows. Calling investigations and lawsuits into them lol. Anyway my point was keep politics in the politics section IMO.
