NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt confirmed Gervais had signed on for the show on January 10, warning audience and nominees alike to brace themselves.
He said to Variety:
We’re excited to have Ricky Gervais back to host the most enjoyable awards show of the season in his own inimitable way.
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.”
