It’s Golden Globes promo time!

With the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards just a month away, NBC has finally unveiled new promos of the awards show on Thursday morning. 

“Happy holidays, America. I’m Ricky Gervais, and I’m hosting the Golden Globe Awards,” he says in the first of two new promos for the hosting gig. “So, there’s your early gift. Is it just what you wanted? No. It’s not, is it?” 

The three-time Golden Globe winner himself didn’t stop there of course. Gervais is then seen spraying the set — including the cameras — with champagne, while a voiceover warns, “as usual, we have no idea what he’s going to do.”

When it was first announced that Gervais will return as host Paul Telegdy, chairman of NBC Entertainment said, “It is sure to make for an unexpected evening. We can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve.” 

The Globes will air live on NBC, January 5, at 8 p.m. from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.
