:: Spotlight :: 73rd Golden Globe Awards

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

Angela Bassett, America Ferrera, Chloe Grace Moretz and Dennis Quaid convened at the Beverly Hilton Hotel to announce the nominees for the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards. Miss Golden Globe Corinne Foxx, Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Lorenzo Soria and executive vice president of television at dick clark productions Barry Adelman also joined them.

After successful (if not controversial) stints in 2010 and 2011, the acerbic Ricky Gervais will be back to host the 2016 Golden Globes for a third time on Sunday, January 10, 2016. Beginning at 8.00pm ET, the show will be broadcast live on NBC from the Beverly Hilton Hotel, with red carpet coverage preceding it on E! and E! Online. The annual Golden Globe Awards are seen in more than 210 countries worldwide.

Gervais will follow Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who co-hosted in 2013, 2014 and 2015. “We're excited to have Ricky Gervais back to host the most enjoyable awards show of the season in his own inimitable way,” NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement in October. “Disarming and surprising, Ricky is ready to honor—and send up—the best work of the year in film and television. Fasten your seats belts.” In a statement, Soria added, “Ricky Gervais left us with a lasting impression and we are thrilled to have him back in our show as we honour the best in film and television. His off-the-cuff wit and quirky charm will surely have the room and audiences around the world at the edge of their seats.”
