Ricky Gervais has signed to host the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards, marking the first time the kudofest has had a host since 1995.
In a statement, Gervais said he felt the show offered him “free reign.”
“Not only is this the biggest Hollywood celebration of the industry which includes both film and TV, but also an environment where I feel I can get free reign as a host,” said Gervais. “I have resisted many other offers like this, but there are just some things you don't turn down.”
Nominations will be announced December 15. This year's show will be broadcast live from 5-8 p.m. (PT) and 8-11 p.m. (ET) from the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
