Ricky Gervais Returns to Host Golden Globe Awards

| by

Surprise!! That’s one word to describe everyone’s reaction to the news that Ricky Gervais has been invited back to host The Golden Globe Awards for a third year.

At last year’s Golden Globes, Ricky Gervais offended half of Hollywood with his hilarious jokes. Despite (or maybe because of) the controversy, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has selected Gervais to host the prestigious awards ceremony for the third year in a row.

While the Academy Awards are playing it safe with host Billy Crystal for the ninth time at the 2012 Oscars, Gervais has warned Crystal not to steal his material.  Gervais tweeted,

“Just told Billy Crystal he’d better not use any of my holocaust or pedophile material at The Oscars,” the 50-year-old British comedian tweeted Wednesday, along with a photo of him and Crystal together. “He agreed (true).”

Something tells me there is no chance Crystal would steal any of Gervais’ material.  Will you be tuning in to the Golden Globes?
