Ricky Gervais asked to consider a third year hosting Golden Globes
Ricky writes, "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 ... I have yet to find anyone who was actually offended by it. The ratings went up again, and the organisers 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 more press for them, that's for sure. You know me. Two seasons is enough."
A Golden Globes rep denies there is any truth to Ricky's claim.
Other highlights from his Golden Globes Week blog:
Friday, Jan. 14: "Had dinner with Larry David ... Michelle Pfeiffer was in the restaurant and shouted over, 'Don't say anything horrible about me tomorrow!' As if I would say anything horrible about Hollywood icons."
Sunday, Jan. 16: "Just had time to work out and lunch before we had to get ready for the Globes. I love putting on a tuxedo in 80-degree heat at 2 pm in the afternoon, then walking down the red carpet, waving. Still, at least with the few pounds I've lost, I don't sweat as much."
We think Ricky did a bang-up job and we'd welcome him at the 2012 Golden Globes. What do you think?
