Ricky Gervais will host the Golden Globes yet again.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization behind the annual awards show that honors film and television, announced its 2016 host via a statement. The show is set to air 8-11 p.m. Jan. 10 on NBC.

The actor first hosted the Globes in 2010, returning to the job in 2011 and 2012. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler took over as co-hosts in 2013.

Gervais brought his signature snark to all of his Globes hosting gigs, from an infamous "The Golden Globes are just like the Oscars, without all that esteem" to the did-he-really-just-go-there jab about Mel Gibson's drinking. He also brought a pint glass to the podium. (Fey and Poehler preferred Champagne flutes.)

“What will he say? What will he do? We can’t wait to find out, and we are so happy that he’s back!,” Barry Adelman, executive producer of the 73rd Golden Globe Awards, said in the statement.
