After Ricky Gervais’s last stint as host of The Golden Globes, the media made it seem like he was to be tarred and feathered outside of The Ivy. Last year, Gervais used the show as his opportunity to roast trainwrecks like Mel Gibson and Robert Downey, Jr.. This caused monocles to pop out of eyes and pearls to be clutched throughout Hollywood. In fact, a member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association told the press, “Ricky will not be invited back to host the show next year, for sure. For sure any movie he makes he can forget about getting nominated. He humiliated the organization last night and went too far with several celebrities whose representatives have already called to complain.” Oooooh no, an anonymous source. Who could it have been who said these things? All the HFPA has to do is find the member who overuses the phrase “for sure.” Open and shut.

At any rate, bad news for Brett Ratner because he’s about to get roasted. Gervais is indeed back to host The Golden Globes for a third year. The comedian announced the news via Twitter with the post: “Just told Billy Crystal he’d better not use any of my holocaust or pedophile material at The Oscars. He agreed (true).”Let’s all look forward to more uproar. Unless, of course, he shares some controversial opinions about rehearsals. (Deadline)

Golden Globe Producers Love To Be Punished http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/golden-globe-producers-love-to-be-punished/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/golden-globe-producers-love-to-be-punished/#comments Tue, 01 Feb 2011 16:29:21 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=23693 Looks like the Hollywood Foreign Press Association likes a little tough talk, don't they? Despite the outrage caused by Ricky Gervais's roasting of the Golden Globes attendees, they've asked him to host a third time.

Hey, Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Looks like you like a little tough talk, don’t ya? Yeah, you do. You’re a dirty little Association.

I’m sure you recall the OUTRAGE caused by Ricky Gervais lazily acknowledging that Charlie Sheen is a drug addict, Kim Cattrall is wrinkly, and Hugh Hefner’s penis looks like a nine day-old 7-Eleven hot dog. Immediately after the show, the HFPA spoke out to declare he had ‘crossed the line’ and won’t be invited back to host. Then the ratings came in.

Lo and behold, Gervais has been invited back to host. The comedian tells UK‘s Heat magazine, “The ratings were up again and the organizers asked me to consider a third year. 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.”

That’s not to say he can’t come back a third time but refer to it as a Christmas special. Sheen always acts up around the holidays. (via Vulture)

Here’s a list of 9 possible replacements.

After Ricky Gervais’ hilarious but controversial performance at last night’s Golden Globes, there’s very little chance we’ll see him hosting next year. The comedian told USA Today that at last year’s ceremony, he was asked to return even before the broadcast had finished. This year, he received no such offer.

“So I probably won’t be here next year,” Gervais said, before adding that if he were invited back, “[he’d] go (expletive) mental.”

But without Gervais, what the hell is the point of watching? His shock value is the show’s only redeeming quality. If I feel like watching a bunch of movie stars kissing each other’s asses, I can just wait for the Oscars. I (reluctantly) watch he Golden Globes because a celebrity or two might get put in their place.

If the Golden Globes have any hope of staying relevant, they’d better find a host who can fill Ricky’s shoes. Here’s a list of 9 possible replacements.

Norm MacDonald
The nice thing about Norm MacDonald is he already has experience hosting an awards show. And unlike Gervais, Norm isn’t afraid to make a joke or two about double homicide or statutory rape.

Lisa Lampanelli
Insult comic Lisa Lampanelli hosted this year’s AVN Awards (a.k.a. the porn Oscars), which means she already has experience playing MC to a bunch of whores. That’s a skill which will come in handy at the Golden Globes.

Kathy Griffin
I’m not big fan of Kathy Griffin, but she’s not afraid to make a dick sucking joke on live TV, and that goes a long way in my book.

Don Rickles
Don Rickles has got to be pushing 90. Why not give the old guy an insult filled send off as the host of the Golden Globes. If he goes too far, he can always blame it on the Alzheimer’s.

Jeffrey Ross
This year, Ricky Gervais was prevented from wearing a Nazi uniform during his opening monologue. Given Jeffery Ross’ penchant for holocaust jokes, I’m sure he’d be a fine replacement.

Tracy Morgan
They serve alcohol at the Golden Globes, which means Tracy Morgan should do just fine as host. Besides, his insults might go unnoticed, because half the time, no one can understand what the hell he’s saying.

Louis C.K.
When it comes to putting pretentious people in their place, Louis C.K. doesn’t pull any punches. And there’s probably not a more pretentious gathering than the Golden Globes (aside from the Oscars).

Gilbert Gottfried
If Robert Downy Jr. has a problem with this year’s host making fun of him, perhaps he’ll be happier with Gilbert Gottfried. He makes Ricky Gervais look like Billy f**king Crystal.

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog
He’s witty, he’s crass, but above all, he’s not afraid to poop on a celebrity or two. That makes Triumph the Insult Comic Dog the perfect host for the Golden Globes. He’ll treat that room full of phonies like the bitches they are.
