If this is dream, then I don't wanna wake up. Here's the best news I've heard all day: Ricky Gervais is set to host the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards, which takes place on Jan. 17, 2010.
Of his hosting duties, Ricky says: "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 reign as a host. I have resisted many other offers like this, but there are just some things you don't turn down."
This is the perfect venue for his kind of humor. The ceremony is known for its more-relaxed setting, the guests are plied with food and cocktails, and the ceremony will have quite a few talk-about-it-the-next-day-by-the-water-cooler moments. I, for one, can't wait!
