Hollywood Foreign Press Association
Outspoken comedian Ricky Gervais will return to host the ceremony for the third straight year, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Wednesday.
The 2012 Golden Globe Awards will be presented on Jan. 15, but which network will air the star-studded presentation is still an open question for a federal judge to decide.
A federal judge on Monday refused to dismiss a lawsuit by the organizers of the Golden Globe Awards, setting up a trial later this year to decide who will broadcast the star-studded show for most of the remainder of the decade.
The organization that hosts the Golden Globe Awards has sued its former publicist for fraud, claiming he and his partner cannot prove allegations the group engages in payola in exchange for awards.
A former publicist has sued the Hollywood Foreign Press Association with charges that it is corrupt, and runs a massive payola scheme.
