:: Spotlight :: 67th Golden Globe Awards

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

Multi-talented Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Ricky Gervais will host “The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards” on Sunday, January 17, 2010 on NBC. This year's show will be broadcast live coast-to-coast from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. This marks the first time the telecast has had a host since 1995.

Gervais said, “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.”

“Ricky is certainly one of the funniest people on the planet and has provided some of the most hilarious and memorable awards show moments in recent memory,” said Paul Telegdy, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, NBC and Universal Media Studios. “His unique comedic style will enhance the only awards show that brings together television and film stars to celebrate entertainment's biggest night of the year.”

“We are delighted to have Ricky Gervais as the host on our show,” said Philip Berk, President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. “He'll bring his unique brand of humor and charm to what will continue to be a fast paced award show.”

Gervais is probably best known for his role as David Brent on the BBC version of “The Office.” Gervais produced, wrote (with Stephen Merchant), directed and acted on the mock documentary series from 2001-2003. Twelve episodes and a two-part Christmas special later, “The Office” is consigned to broadcasting history as one of the most perfectly crafted comedy series in British TV history. The show was showered with awards and critical acclaim and Gervais became a household name. Gervais and Merchant teamed up again in 2005 to create the award-winning series “Extras” in which he played an aspiring actor.

This year Gervais wrote, directed and starred in the feature film “The Invention of Lying” alongside Jennifer Garner, Jonah Hill, Louis C.K., Rob Lowe and Tina Fey (NBC‘s “30 Rock”). “Cemetery Junction” — Gervais’ second film as writer and director and his first film co-written and directed with Stephen Merchant, is slated to be released in April 2010. He is currently in development with HBO for “The Ricky Gervais Show” — an animation of his record-breaking audio books, scheduled to air on the network early 2010. Gervais is also in development with Illumination (“The Simpsons Movie”) for “Flanimals,” a movie based on his award-winning children's book.

Nominations for “The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards” will be announced on Tuesday, December 15.

**Cecil B. DeMille Award**

Martin Scorsese will be honoured at “The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards” on January 17 with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for his “outstanding contribution to the entertainment field.” The award, voted by the Board of Directors of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, was announced by Vera Farmiga recently. The show, hosted by Ricky Gervais, will be broadcast live coast to coast Sunday, January 17 on NBC from The Beverly Hilton.

Scorsese received two Golden Globe Awards for “Best Director of a Motion Picture”; for “The Departed” and “Gangs of New York.” He received five additional Golden Globe nominations, including four as Best Director (“Casino,” “Age of Innocence,” “Goodfellas,” and Raging Bull“) and one for Best Screenplay for "Raging Bull” (with Nicolas Pileggi).

Martin Scorsese was born in 1942 in New York City, and was raised in the downtown neighborhood of Little Italy, which later provided the inspiration for several of his films. Scorsese earned a BS degree in film communications in 1964, followed by an MA in the same field in 1966 at New York University's School of Film. During this time, he made numerous prize-winning short films, including “The Big Shave.”

In 1968, Scorsese directed his first feature film, entitled “Who's That Knocking at My Door?” He served as Assistant Director and an editor of the documentary “Woodstock” in 1970, and won critical and popular acclaim for his 1973 film “Mean Streets.” Scorsese directed his first documentary film, “Italianamerican,” in 1974.

In 1976, Scorsese's “Taxi Driver” was awarded the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. He followed with “New York, New York” in 1977, “The Last Waltz” in 1978, and “Raging Bull” in 1980, which received five Golden Globe Award Nominations and eight Academy Award Nominations including Best Picture and Best Director. Scorsese went on to direct “The Color of Money,” “The Last Temptation of Christ,” “Goodfellas,” “Cape Fear,” “Casino,” “Kundun” and “The Age of Innocence,” among other films.

In 1996, Scorsese completed a 4-hour documentary, “A Personal Journey With Martin Scorsese Through American Movies,” co-directed by Michael Henry Wilson. The documentary was commissioned by the British Film Institute to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of cinema. In 2001, Scorsese released “Il Mio Viaggio In Italia,” an epic documentary that affectionately chronicles his love for Italian Cinema. His long-cherished project, “Gangs of New York,” was released in 2002, earning numerous critical honours.

In 2003, PBS broadcast the seven-film documentary series “Martin Scorsese Presents: The Blues.” “The Aviator” was released in December of 2004 and earned five Academy Awards in addition to the Golden Globe and BAFTA awards for Best Picture. In 2005, “No Direction Home: Bob Dylan” was broadcast as part of the “American Masters” series on PBS and released on DVD worldwide by Paramount Home Entertainment.

Scorsese's most recent feature, “The Departed,” was released to critical acclaim in October 2006 and has been honoured with the Golden Globe, Director's Guild of America, New York Film Critics, National Board of Review and Critic's Choice awards for Best Director, in addition to four Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director. “Shine A Light,” Scorsese's documentary of the Rolling Stones in concert was released worldwide April 4, 2008.

He is currently in post production on “Shutter Island” due for release in the spring of 2010 and he is executive producer on the upcoming HBO drama series “Boardwalk Empire.” Scorsese's additional awards and honours include the Golden Lion from the Venice Film Festival (1995), the AFI Life Achievement Award (1997), the Honoree at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's 25th Gala Tribute (1998), and the DGA Lifetime Achievement Award (2003) and The Kennedy Center Honors (2007).

Scorsese is the founder and chair of The Film Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and protection of motion picture history. At the 2007 Cannes Film Festival Scorsese launched the World Cinema Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and restoration of neglected films from around the world, with special attention paid to those developing countries lacking the financial and technical resources to do the work themselves. Scorsese is the founder and chair.

“The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards” will be seen in more than 160 countries worldwide and is one of the few awards ceremonies that span both television and motion picture achievements. The special will be produced by dick clark productions in association with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

**Update as at December 11, 2009**

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Mavis Spencer as its selection as Miss Golden Globe for “The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards” to be telecast live on NBC on Sunday, January 17, 2010. HFPA President Philip Berk made the announcement at the Second Annual Golden Globes Party Saluting Young Hollywood, which took place at Nobu West Hollywood on December 8. Traditionally, Miss Golden Globe, who assists in the Golden Globes ceremony, is the daughter of a well-known celebrity. Mavis, age 18, is the daughter of Golden Globe winner Alfre Woodard and writer/producer Roderick Spencer.

“We are delighted that Mavis will join us on January 17 to celebrate ‘The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards,’” said Berk at the announcement. “She's a lovely, multi-talented and very poised young lady.”

Mavis said, “It means a lot to me as a young person to be a part of something with such a rich history. I know how my mom feels when she brings home a statue. And to hand someone a token of their accomplishments when they're elated will just be really cool. I have memories of my mom traipsing off to the Globes, but this year she's with me! And we're going to have so much fun.”

Soon to be a college Freshman (Columbia University class of 2014), Mavis has appeared in Teen Vogue and InStyle Magazine. Something of a renaissance woman, Mavis plans to model and study acting at Columbia, while continuing her already illustrious career in Equestrienne Show Jumping.
