As announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Ricky Gervais will be making his third return to host the 2012 Golden Globes in January. He left some wondering if he had be back after his performance at this year’s show when he took pointed jabs at Hollywood stars and HFPA. Ricky Gervais posted a clip on his Twitter page of his biting opening monologue from 2011 show.

Earlier this year, Ricky Gervais joked that the Press Association accepts bribes and swiped at stars that include Mel Gibson, Robert Downey Jr. and Bruce Wills. However, the Association has acknowledged on its website that not everyone is happy with the decision to bring Gervais back as his blunt one-liners targeting big-name celebrities caused anger and resentment in some quarters.

The jabs paid off in rating still and drawing nearly 17 million viewers to the NBC broadcast and beating out its network competition during that time slot. Initially, Gervais said that he would not return as its host. But Philip Berk, who was president of HFPA during that time, has denied that Gervais has been invited to return to Globes. However, the organization told that Ricky Gervais gradually warmed to the idea and had recently discussed his return with HFPA’s new president, Dr. Aida Takla-O’Reilly. The 60th annual awards, 2012 Golden Globes will be held on 15th January at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.
