This is something of a shocker: Ricky Gervais will return as Golden Globes host in 2011.
Variety reports that NBC, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Dick Clark Productions made the announcement today. The show will air Jan. 16, 2011.
"I can't believe they invited me back after [the] awful things I said," Gervais quipped, according to Variety.
The Brit is one of the few comedians who can make me laugh out loud but I didn't think the Globes were his best platform. In other words, he wasn't all that funny but the ratings were up and that's what counts.
