And you already know celebrities are squirming with this latest announcement.
Gervais, who is known for his no-holds-barred style of stand-up that verbally slaps the stars seated mere inches from him, is hosting the show for the fourth time in six years, with the news being released of his return on Twitter by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. NBC also released a statement involving his return…
“We’re excited to have Ricky Gervais back to host the most enjoyable awards show of the season in his own inimitable way. Disarming and surprising, Ricky is ready to honor — and send up — the best work of the year in film and television. Fasten your seats belts.”
Nominations for the upcoming show will be announced on Thursday, December 10th, with the 73rd telecast held on January 10th at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
