We can ONLY imagine how controversial this will be if it happens!
Here's what he wrote about it in a recent blog entry for the Wall Street Journal:
"I don't think I should host the Golden Globes again, even if I'm asked and that is very unlikely, to be honest…But because of the greatest thing about our society, freedom of speech, I can still host the Golden Globes, or any event on the planet. I am working with a Californian technology company on a live webcast idea. People watch their TV at the same time as listening to me and a few chums provide our own alternative commentary."
"This is not to steal anyone's thunder, or disrupt pleasant society. It's simply a new horizon. And for its own sake. I have no idea if it will work but I didn't know if podcasting would work back in 2005 when I launched The Ricky Gervais Show. I didn't particularly care either. I was doing it for a laugh. There are not many better reasons to do anything."
Very cool idea, Ricky! We would definitely tune in for that!
What do U think? Would U listen to Ricky Gervais' live Golden Globes webcast? Or would U prefer the actual show???
