We can ONLY imagine how controversial this will be if it happens!
Back in February, Ricky Gervais made it VERY clear that he was NOT going to be asked back to host the Golden Globes again.
Then in August, he claimed that he'd been asked to host the Academy Awards, Emmys, AND….drum roll….the GOLDEN GLOBES once again!
Now, Ricky has said that he might host the 2012 show…but through an "unofficial live webcast," in which fans can listen to his commentary during the Globes.
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???
