"Shut up, you disgusting, pill-popping deviant scum!" Those were the words Gervais used to open the star-studded Golden Globes in 2016 -- the last time he hosted Hollywood's most free-wheeling award show. So A-listers in the audience will be on their guard Sunday, when the provocative British comic returns to oversee the boozy prize-giving gala for "the very last time." Gervais' no-holds-barred humor has drawn praise and criticism in previous years, with everyone from Caitlyn Jenner to Roman Polanski considered fair targets for his sharp barbs. / AFP / GETTY IMAGES NORTH AMERICA / Jason Merritt / TO GO WITH AFP STORY by Andrew MARSZAL, "Gervais back to roast Hollywood in 'final' Globes role"

The role of hosting at this year's ceremony comes down to British comedian Ricky Gervais, who has presented four times in the past and promises his fifth stint on the Golden Globes stage will be his "very last".

He is known for taking no prisoners on stage.

Netflix dominating Golden Globe nominations 

Golden Globe nominees were announced on Monday, December 9.

Streaming service Netflix dominated nominations as its heart-rending divorce saga Marriage Story received six nods including best drama. The Irishman, Martin Scorsese's three-and-a-half-hour gangster epic from Netflix, secured five nominations, ending tied for second with Once upon a Time in Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino's nostalgic love letter to 1960s Tinseltown.
