Ricky Gervais has been confirmed as the host of the 2020 Golden Globes.
The news was announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association on Tuesday morning.
The comedian will emcee the 77th Golden Globe Awards. The 2020 awards ceremony will mark his fifth time fronting the event. However, Gervais calmed the enthusiasm, adding that this time will definitely be his last.
“Once again, they’ve made me an offer I can’t refuse. But this is the very last time I’m doing this, which could make for a fun evening,” Gervais said in a statement.
“There is always palpable electricity in the room when Ricky takes the Globes stage. His return as master of ceremonies at the Golden Globes is much anticipated,” added Paul Telegdy, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “It is sure to make for an unexpected evening. We can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve.”
Gervais hosted the Globes in 2010-12 and then again in 2016.
The 77th annual Golden Globes air live on NBC on January 5.
