The ceremony has been host-free since 1995 and the comedian will be the sole host. Gervais has a good history with the awards show. He picked up a Golden Globe in 2004 for The Office and was nominated for Extras last year. He has also been a presenter in past years.

Last year, he singled out Kate Winslet from the stage with the hilarious comment (who had just picked up a statuette for The Reader): “Well done, Winslet. I told ya’, do a Holocaust movie, the awards will come.”

The Golden Globes will air on January 17, 2010, at 8pm on NBC.
