It's confirmed! Ricky Gervais will be back to host the Golden Globes on January 15.
After meeting with NBC exec Doug Vaughn, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association confirmed the news via Twitter. Ricky also tweeted today, "Just told Billy Crystal he'd better not use any of my holocaust or pedophile material at The Oscars. He agreed."
The controversial British comedian previously dismissed the possibility of coming back to host the awards show, but after meeting with HFPA President Dr. Aida Takla-O'Reilly, he reportedly changed his mind. But will he lighten up his snarky remarks for the telecast? Or will he insult even more celebrities and producers this year?
Who's excited that Ricky's back?!
