In an effort to bring some life back into the foundering Golden Globes telecast, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has a solution: Ricky Gervais. The comedian will host the 67th annual show, which has been host-less since 1995, People magazine reported Monday. “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 rein as a host," Gervais said. "I have resisted many other offers like this, but there are just some things you don't turn down." Gervais himself has won three Golden Globes, and his appearance made for one of the funniest moments from last year’s show (which only brought in a paltry 14.6 viewers, according to Nielsen). “What did I tell you, Winslet—do a Holocaust movie, win an award,” he joked of Kate Winslet’s Best Supporting Actress nomination in January. Nominations for the upcoming telecast will be announced in December.
