3. Who is hosting this year?
Ricky Gervais is back! After three years of not hosting the Globes, giving us the dynamic duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for three sweet years, Ricky will return to the stage as the host for the 2016 show. He previously hosted the show in 2010, 2011 and 2012. He’s been known to be a bit harsh with his jokes, but Ricky doesn’t understand what the ruckus was about.
“I’ve never understood the controversy around the Golden Globes,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “That stuff I did, I was shocked that people thought that was shocking. Genuinely. I thought, what have I said wrong? I didn’t say anything outrageous or libelous. I didn’t say anything against broadcasting rules. It was on network television, late afternoon, it couldn’t have been that bad.”
