Ricky Gervais, who pissed off some of the biggest names in showbiz at the most recent Golden Globes ceremony, claims he’s been asked to host the event again.
Gervais hosted the Globes in January and took shots at everything from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to Sex and the City 2 and everyone from Charlie Sheen to “famous Scientologists.” Both sides agreed after the show that it was a onetime deal.
But on Friday, Gervais reportedly claimed that he had been invited back for an encore by NBC, saying at the MediaGuardian Edinburgh International TV Festival: “NBC have offered it—they think they can persuade the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. But I don’t think they will go for it.” He then added: “I shouldn’t do it. It’s a second encore. Don’t do a second encore. I don’t think I should do it. What am I going back as?”
Your move, NBC…
