Nevertheless in a blog article titled “Ricky Back!” The Foreign Press Associating, that happens to organize the Golden Globes, confirmed that he will be back hosting this years show.

The 73rd ceremony will take place on 10 January in Los Angeles.

“We’re excited to have Ricky Gervais back to host the most enjoyable awards show of the season in his own inimitable way,” said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt. ”Disarming and surprising, Ricky is ready to honor — and send up — the best work of the year in film and television.
