Ricky Gervais has been confirmed as the host for the Golden Globes next year.

The British comedian is returning one last time as the host of the Golden Globe Awards. This will be Gervais’ fifth time hosting the ceremony but he has confirmed that this time, it really will be his last time.

“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 confessed.

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

The 77th Golden Globe Awards will be hosted at the Beverly Hills Hotel and will air on January 5th.
