What’s this!!?? I thought the HFPA was pissed with Ricky Gervais for his controversial hosting of the Golden Globes?
After Ricky got the nation in a tizzy for his insult-laden hosting gig, everyone was quick to say Ricky would never host the Globes again. Including Ricky – who said “I think twice is enough.”
But looks like he might need to consider returning, because according to the comedian – the HFPA has already come knocking for next year!
“I did exactly what I went to do. Improve on last year’s and have a laugh. The response was staggering. It was discussed on every news channel and chat show for weeks,” Gervais wrote in a diary for Heat Magazine. “The ratings went up again, and the organizers asked me to consider a third year. I don’t think I should. I don’t know what I could do better. I certainly couldn’t get mor press for them, that’s for sure.”
For his part, Gervais didn’t ever seem to think he did anything wrong, saying that “being nice would be nauseating.”
“I’m not going to apologize for being true to myself,” he said. “My strategy is to make me laugh. If there’s anyone in the world like me, that’s a bonus.”
The HFPA obviously realizes that bad publicity is still publicity – and the Golden Globes remains the only award show worth watching, if you ask me. I think the rest of them are a total snooze fest.
What do you think?

New American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez said she was so afraid controversial Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais would make a mean crack about her, so she pulled him aside back stage to try to scare him.
“He’s very gutsy, it takes a lot of guts to get up there and make the comments he made and go for that type of comedy,” she tells Access Hollywood. “I’m sure in his mind it was all in good fun. But in the room, being in the room it was like, eek… Then, when I go backstage to present, I’m backstage with Alec [Baldwin], we’re about to walk out, and Ricky shows up. I say, ‘Listen! I will kill you, you understand, I am from New York, my husband fights, we both fight, we will beat you up after the show… with a couple of bleep bleeps in there.”
In the end, he made a crack about her extravagant spending habits, but she said she didn’t mind it.
“I scared him,” Lopez later told Ellen DeGeneres on her show. “He was scary, though.”

Ricky Gervais, scandalous host of the 2011 Golden Globe Awards, poses in nothing but a gold pair of undies given to him by fellow comedian and talkshow host Ellen DeGeneres.
DeGeneres posted the photos on Twitter with the caption “Please enjoy this photo of Ricky Gervais in my underwear.”
Ricky is definitely loving all the attention he’s getting this week over his controversial hosting gig. But according to Ricky – he doesn’t care if he’s asked back – he was never going to do it again anyway.
A smiling Gervais was weathering the storm in New York this morning — following his super-controversial statements at the awards show — when Ricky told TMZ, “I think twice is enough.”
After the photog mentioned that Ricky’s fellow comics seem to be standing by the performance — Gervais replied, “Well, it’s nice to be loved by your peers … they stick by you.”
