Gervais Asked To Host Golden Globes AGAIN!

By on 1 February, 2011

Funnyman Ricky Gervais has been asked to return as host of the Golden Globes in 2012, despite the furore surrounding his acerbic style at last month’s ceremony.

The ‘Office star sparked outrage during his hosting duties at the glitzy awards show after aiming a number of barbed jibes at the star-studded audience. His performance was met with disapproval from several celebrities, as well as event organisers, who labelled the jokes “totally unacceptable”.

Gervais refused to apologise for his words – and now the star has revealed chiefs have already asked him to front the ceremony for a third time next year. But he’s considering snubbing the invite, because he doesn’t think he can top his recent appearance.

Gervais writes in Heat magazine: 

“I did exactly what I went to do: improve on last year’s and have a laugh. The response was staggering. It was discussed on every news channel and chat show for weeks.

“The weird thing is, the question is always, ‘Did Ricky go too far?’ And the answer is always, ‘No.’ I have yet to find anyone who was actually offended by it.

“The ratings went up again, and the organisers asked me to consider a third year. (But) I don’t think I should. I don’t know what I could do better. I certainly couldn’t get more press for them, that’s for sure. You know me. Two seasons is enough.”
