Breaking from the raditional no host mold, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has chosen Ricky Gervais to host the 67th Annual Golden Globes. He is the first Golden Globes host since 1995.
Gervais said on his hosting gig: “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. I have resisted many other offers like this, but there are just some things you don’t turn down.”
I say, this is a match made in heaven. My real question though is do they broadcast the Golden Globes in Berlin? Because someone (who may or may not be writing this blog post) is going to have a difficult time watching this.
