While he has threatened to quit his Golden Globe hosting duties after his first, second and third hosting stints, Ricky Gervais says he means it this time.
Even though his Sunday night hosting duties at the Golden Globes seemed to go over well (so well, I heard Kim Kardashian loved your jokes! The seal of approval, obviously!) Ricky says he will never do it again.
Writing on his blog, he instructed his agent to never let him agree to host it again.
“Thank f-ck that’s over,” he wrote, “I had a blast actually. It was by far my favorite of the three hosting stints.”
Very true. Nobody seemed to be that upset about him. Well, except for Elton John. That man could not crack a smile even if he found out that Golden Globes was handing out actual men as statues this year.
“I’ve told my agent to never let me be persuaded to do it again though. It’s like a parachute jump. You can only really enjoy it in retrospect when you realize you didn’t die and it was quite an amazing thing to do.”
Last year, he came under fire by the HFPA and NBC and many individual celebrities, saying his jokes were too mean, apparently, they were all fans of “The Tourist.” Zing. “The Tourist” references are never gonna get old!
Talking about the audience this year, Ricky says, “The crowd was great this year too. I think they finally worked out that my gags only seemed rude and nasty but were actually not too scary at all. Or they were just drunker. Either way, it was fun but I’m glad to say I’m off to New York to chill out a bit.”
When Ricky talked about Jodie Foster’s “beaver” and basically called her a lesbian, she didn’t even care. She just threw up a “thumbs-up” and kept on chuckling! Consensus: Everyone was drunk. Even the little boy from “Hugo.”
