Surprise! Ricky Gervais Set To Host Golden Globes Yet Again
  |  @   |  

Either comedian Ricky Gervais has some incredible mind control superpowers, or the Hollywood Foreign Press has a very, very short memory.

It’s being reported that Gervais will be returning to host the Golden Globes on January 15, marking his third time on the job in a row.

The amusing thing about all of this is that Gervais has gone out onto the stage the past two years, drink in hand, and thrown down viciously hilarious performances, laying waste to any and everyone in sight. Nothing sacred, no celebrity safe. Yes, he’s faced a whole lot of backlash for his reckless approach, but he’s also won over a sea of fans who appreciate someone in Hollywood calling it how it is…laughing till it hurts along the way.

It even appeared that the Hollywood Foreign Press was prepared to ban him from ever hosting again AND his movies from ever being nominated. But now, clearly, they’ve had a change of hearts (or a great lack of options).

In Hollywood, if you can’t laugh at yourself then you do not belong. Ricky Gervais—he’ll make sure you’re thoroughly tested, and that’s why he’s the best man for the job.

  3. Beautiful… This guy is a genious with no affraid and nobody has control on him. That’s why so many people don’t like him. I think he’s brilliant and he could be in a road of becoming the most hilarious comedian of our time. Sometimes Britts don’t apreciate their felow countrymen. Oh wel, it’s a pity :(
