Third time in a row: Ricky Gervais will host the 2012 Golden Globe Awards.

Ricky Gervais will return as a host of the upcoming Golden Globe Awards, 2012. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced yesterday (16.11.11) that the British funnyman would return as host despite causing quite a bit of controversy last year.

It will mark Ricky Gervais’ third consecutive run as host of the Golden Globe Awards, which honors the best in TV and film from the past year.

“Just told Billy Crystal he’d better not use any of my holocaust or pedophile material at The Oscars. He agreed (true).”-the comedian tweeted yesterday.

Many assumed that the funnyman wouldn’t be back again. He slammed Robert Downey, Jr., for his past stints in jail and rehab, Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie for The Tourist, Charlie Sheen for his meltdown and the cast of Sex and the City for their ages. The 50-year-old host Ricky Gervais, also mercilessly targeted celeb Scientologists John Travolta and Tom Cruise.

The 69th Golden Globe Awards will be held on January 15, 2012, on NBC.
