Ricky Gervais Booked Again to Host Golden Globes

NEW YORK — Ricky Gervais (jur-VAYS’) will be back again to host the Golden Globe Awards.

NBC and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Wednesday that the British actor-writer-comic will make his encore appearance on the Jan. 16, 2011, live broadcast.

Gervais is perhaps best known as the co-creator and star of the British version of ‘The Office,’ which later was successfully adapted as an NBC comedy. He also co-created and starred in ‘Extras,’ a comedy series that aired on HBO. His current feature film is ‘Cemetery Junction.’

Before Gervais, the Hollywood awards show had gone more than a decade without a host.
