For The Last Time, Ricky Gervais Is NOT Hosting Next Year's Golden Globes

Geez! People love stirring the pot, don't they.

Alright, listen up all of you, because we really don't want to have to say this again. Though rumors have started to spread AGAIN that Ricky Gervais has been asked to return as host for the Golden Globes next year, the truth of the matter is he hasn't and Ricky himself has made it very clear that he hasn't.

But some people are having a bit of trouble reading these days. Someone took this post on his blog as a confirmation that he had, when he was really saying he hadn't! Confused? Let us show you what we mean. This is from a blog post Ricky put up yesterday:

"The TV show organisers said they were happy with everything and asked me to not rule out a third gig. However, it is not entirely up to them. The Hollywood Foreign Press and various other committees need to meet and agree. I have no idea if they want me back again. It depends whether they care about fifty delicate egos in the room or the 200 million people watching at home who want a laugh. Also, even if they did want me back, at the moment I'm pretty sure I shouldn't do it. But I'll tell you this. If they do invite me back and I accept, I'm going to pull exactly the same shit again or even worse.

Once again, everyone has been warned."

Did you read that? Good. Did you read it carefully? Great. Then you see, don't you, that he's saying that NBC, not the HFPA, don't want him to rule out hosting again next year. This was not a formal invitation. Nothing is set in stone. Nothing!

Need it spelled out clearer for you? Not a problem. This comes straight from one of Ricky's reps:

"Ricky is horrified that people think that he had said the HFPA had requested him back. He never said this. He said that the show's organisers, in this case - NBC, called him and said he should not rule out a return for a third time. Ricky at no point mentioned this was the HFPA and called Philip Berk earlier today to explain this to him."

See all the trouble this is causing? Such a mess!

So, to sum up, and hopefully for the last time: Ricky Gervais not hosting next year's Golden Globes.

Can we move on now? Isn't anyone interested in the Oscars???

    Wow, that's pretty condescending language from one of the sources responsible for the misinformation. YOU are the one who didn't read carefully and didn't understand… or more likely, just copied it from one the many other sources who reported it earlier. And you didn't verify the information directly from the source.

    Is that clear enough?

    Asshole — YOU are the one who said he was! Mario = Fucking moron.

    Click on the Ricky Gervais tag above the post. The one directly beneath this one says "Ricky Gervais Has Been Invited Back To Host The Golden Globes!"
    Haha. Way to read carefully.

    YOU were the one to start up this BS story to begin with! In your original article you even omitted the stuff about only the tv show producers wanting him back, not the Hollywood Foreign Press! And then you make US out to be slow because you guys messed up?? What assclowns.



  5. 5

    Not that this even matters, but you're also displaying incorrect info, Ricky actually never said for sure he wasn't hosting the Globes again, you're title is factually incorrect.



  6. 6

    Ricky is a legend. No one else has the balls to say such things. Anyway- bravo to him for turning it down. No need to become host-greedy.



  7. 7

    LOLZ! You're the one going on about it - we're just innocent readers, so don't talk down to us like we're dumb. Unless it's a humour technique, which in that case you fail.

    Didn't you get your info wrong on that Britney story too Perez?? And who keeps going on about it that you feel the need to have a go at them?? You post the articles not us!!

    Using "for the last time" implies you've tried to tell us many times before, which you had not, in fact, you said the exact opposite. Perez, people might have more respect for you if, instead of yelling at your loyal viewers for your mistake, instead you admit you were wrong. Or maybe just check your sources before you go and post something stolen from another gossip site who didn't check their sources either.

    Blame everyone except yourself?
    Why don`t you look a bit further into your stories before publishing them.

    Wow. Real teeth and a not-orange complexion.
    Three cheers for the British, who at least have some good sense.

    i would love to read the name of the egos that were bruised by his monologue, on top of my list Angie!!!
