Ricky Gervais Prepares to Rip Celebs at Golden Globes


Let me preface this post with the fact that I personally did not find Ricky Gervais offensive at last year's Golden Globe Awards. Provocative perhaps, but isn't that his job as a comedian? My only beef was he didn't get nearly enough screen time, but that's just because I have it bad for Mr. Gervais.

Ricky Gervais is back to host Sunday's Golden Globes despite word that he would NEVER be invited back again. His reason for coming back? He was asked to. 

He was surprised that so many people were talking about his performance and that he didn't think it was nasty at  all:

“I don’t think I was nasty,”“If they saw my stand-up, their heads would explode.”

But Ricky keeps it real and points out what is lost on the egomaniacs in the room:

“People say, ‘Is there anything you shouldn’t joke about?’ I don’t think there is,” “I just think it depends what the joke is. Comedy comes from either a good or a bad place and I was just teasing them, ya know.  It wasn’t a room full of wounded soldiers. These are the richest most privileged people in the world.”

The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards airs live on NBC Sunday, January 15 at 8 EST/5 PST. Will you be watching? Check back here for all of your Golden Globe coverage including video and pictures.
