Ricky Gervais Wants to Host the Golden Globes Again!
Ricky Gervais wants to come back to the Golden Globes again, and if he does you know it’s going to be filled with Harvey Weinstein jokes!
“At the moment, there’s something in the news every day that makes me go, ‘I wish I was doing the Globes tonight,’” Ricky Gervais tells People magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Jess Cagle in the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview. “It would be too easy. Oh my God, how easy would it be? Bullseye.”
“By the end of my run, people were getting it,” he adds. “The first time, they said, ‘Why is he saying these awful things to these lovely rich people?’ I’m calling them scum. Now everyone knows I was right… I remember a famous one where I teased — I said the Globe Special Effects should go to the team that air brushed the Sex and the City 2 poster. I said, ‘Girls, we know how old you are. [We] saw one of you in an episode of Bonanza.’ I heard that Kim Cattrall thought that was ageist. Actually it was the opposite. I was saying, ‘Why airbrush? What’s wrong with being 50?’ … It’s misunderstood. I think that’s the problem.”
