Ricky Gervais to host 2016 Golden Globes ceremony
British comedian known for The Office to emcee annual movie and TV awards for 4th time
British comedian Rick Gervais will host the Golden Globes ceremony in 2016 for a fourth time, organizers said on Monday.
Gervais, the creator of mockumentary The Office, brought his biting humour to the annual movie and television awards ceremony in Los Angeles for three consecutive years from 2010-2012.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which organizes the event, said it was thrilled to have him back for the Jan. 10 ceremony.
"His off-the-cuff wit and quirky charm will surely have the room and audiences around the world at the edge of their seats," Lorenzo Soria, president of the association, said in a statement.
