  Golden Globes 2020: Ricky Gervais Returning to Host for Fifth Time When the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards air on Sunday, Jan. 5 (NBC, 8/7c), the nominees won’t be the only nervous people in the audience. Ricky Gervais will return to host the ceremony for a fifth time, TVLine has learned. “Once again, they’ve made me an offer I can’t refuse,” Gervais said in a statement. “But this is the very last time I’m doing this, which could make for a fun evening.” After hosting three consecutive Golden Globe ceremonies (2010–2012), Gervais took a few years off before returning for a fourth time in 2016.

The sprawling grid that surrounds its clustered houses and public buildings is not filled with the typical urban asphalt parking lots and concrete mini-malls, but artificial reefs that operate as nurseries for fish and pens for indigenous aquaculture.

Ganvie's unusual environmental infrastructure is one of more than 100 "nature-based technologies" collected in a new book by landscape designer Julia Watson, titled "Lo_TEK: Design by Radical Indigenism."

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 Picks Up One Golden Globe Nomination

  ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 Picks Up One Golden Globe Nomination The long night surrounding “Game of Thrones” Season 8 will continue for at least a little longer The HBO behemoth, which came to an end with its controversial eighth season back in May, scored one Golden Globe nomination on Monday morning. Kit Harington was nominated for best actor in a drama series, while the show itself was shut out of every other category. HBO brought in a total of 15 nominations across all categories.

" Watchmen 's" snub is even more perplexing when you consider what was nominated for best drama series instead. Apple broke through with "The Morning Show," which was initially panned SEE ALSO: The 8 worst snubs from the Golden Globes nominations , from ' Watchmen ' to women directors .

The book describes cities, buildings and infrastructure from 20 countries including Iraq, Peru, the Philippines and Tanzania -- perhaps the world's best examples of "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK): techniques and technologies developed and incubated in indigenous societies.

They provide ideas of how today's architects, planners and designers might respond to the global climate crisis, which scientists have warned will see temperatures cross the point of no return and one million species go extinct unless radical action is taken.

"I think the central theme of the book is really questioning what we think of as technology and saying nature can be adapted and form a technology that we can apply to the way that we live in this world," said Watson, who teaches at Harvard's Graduate School of Design and Columbia University.

SNUB : “Wonder Woman ” gets shut out Some pundits have wondered if the Warner Bros. tentpole could be the first comic book movie to score a best picture nomination at the Oscars. It looks like she got inspired by her gorgeous strapless look of the same hue from the 2007 Golden Globes .

"All of them have been born out of people living in their environment, using what we call, in ecological sciences, 'symbiosis' as a fundamental process to which they build and live."

These include bridges in northeastern India woven from living tree roots, which provide sustainable and flood resistant infrastructure while sequestering carbon and contributing to local forest cover.

Floating man-made islands in the Ma'dan, in southern Iraq, encourage the growth of diverse aquatic ecosystems while providing a resilient foundation for architecture.

And a low-density city on the southern foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro is home to a million people who live amid forest gardens of banana trees and coffee plants.

Most often -- as with Ganvie's fish pens and Kilimanjaro's banana gardens -- they produce food.

"At this very moment, probably the biggest impact that these system can have is decreasing the agricultural footprint of our cities by shifting the way that we understand productive land and (its) relationship with our cities -- folding that (agricultural production) into the way that we design cities," Watson said.

The last woman to win Best Director at the Golden Globes was Barbra Streisand, in 1984. (Ava DuVernay, nominated for Selma in 2015, was the first.) By eschewing to nominate any women , the HFPA is essentially saying that they don't believe that we should even be given the chance to rectify

One of the most interesting examples of this can be seen in the East Kolkata Wetlands, the largest wastewater-fed aquaculture system in the world, covering 125 square kilometers (48 square miles).

On the edge of Kolkata, a city of 14 million people, we see a patchwork of fishponds, lagoons and channels, clustered around villages, rice paddies and fields.

"So it looks like a wetland but it's constructed," said Watson. Each day, 680 million liters of raw sewage, at least a third of the city's total waste, pours into pre-treatment ponds before entering the "bheris," shallow fish ponds, dug by local people and cooperatives.

"And it processes it through a natural system, without the use of energy, without the use of chemicals, without an engineered, industrial wastewater treatment plant.

Awkwafina shares her oddest Golden Globes nomination congratulations text

"The water coming out of that system is fresh or is clean water that will go back into the river system, not destroying ecosystems downstream. But it also produces food for the city. It produces vegetables for the city. There's a whole culture that has grown up around in relationship with this nature-based technology."

Watson hopes these examples offer inspiration to today's city planners.

"That type of thinking is creating an innovation and a nature-based technology that can both shrink our agro-ecological footprint, carbon-sequester, flood-mitigate, produce culture, produce jobs and it's economically viable.

"It has so many benefits for our cities and it's free. It's a natural system. And it's driven by a sort of complex ecological relationship."

In some cases, Watson sees such knowledge already integrated into contemporary city-building. The polder dike system that Dutch farmers have used for hundreds of years to drain wetlands for human habitation also underpins massive city-scale developments in China and across the world, she explained.

Watson sees her research as the beginning of a process by which these symbiotic systems could be developed to build the 21st century's cities. Consider terracing, she suggested, which in the Philippines has already turned mountain slopes almost as steep as skyscrapers into fertile fields.
