— -- Guess who's back?

The Golden Globe Awards revealed today that comedian Ricky Gervais would be hosting again.

"Returning to the same stage where he brought his acerbic sense of humor to Hollywood, Ricky Gervais has been named host of the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards set for Jan. 10," the Globes stated in a statement today.

Gervais, 54, has been known to say exactly what he feels and the release played that up.

"What will he say? What will he do?" said the executive producer of the Globes, Barry Adelman.

The comedian and movie star hosted the awards show from 2010 to 2012.
