Ricky Gervais to host Golden Globes

Ricky Gervais is rapidly becoming the alchemist of entertainment; anything he gets his chubby little fingers on, from sitcoms to movies, to stand-up comedy and podcasts, turns to gold. Well now he’s going to have a crack at award ceremonies by hosting the prestigious Golden Globe Film Awards next year.

No stranger to the odd Golden Globe statute himself (as you may have heard him modestly mention once or twice on the telly) Ricky has been confirmed to helm the LA awards do, which comes only second in Lalaland to the Oscars. "Ricky is certainly one of the funniest people on the planet," said Paul Telgedy, the head honcho of NBC, who screen the awards. "There are just some things you don't turn down."

Ricky is said to have only accepted the offer on the understanding that he has ‘free rein’ as host. But will he do ‘the dance’? You’ll have to watch on the 17th January to find out.
