Will Ricky Gervais present the Globes for a third year?

Despite/because of all the hoohah surrounding Ricky Gervais‘ controversial jokes at this year’s Golden Globes, it looks like the organisers want him back for a third year. Ricky made headlines around the world by taking the Michael out of some of the world’s most famous slebs, to admittedly mixed reactions. Come on though, referring to Bruce Willis as “Ashton Kutcher’s dad” was pretty funny.

Gervais told the ever-trustworthy source that is Heat magazine that “The ratings went up again, and the organisers 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,”

To be honest, in terms of comedians capable of giving our acting royalty a good roasting, we think that the US rich-kids got off lightly with Ricky Gervais. Can you even imagine the filth that could spew from the likes of Frankie Boyle? We reckon the fact that the Globes are trying to take themselves less seriously is a good thing. But Gervais for a third year running? Come on guys, in for a penny…
