Ricky Gervais is set to host the Golden Globes again this weekend. I wonder when was the last time that the host of one of Hollywood’s big nights was the biggest headline.
If you are not up with the story, last year Gervais created some controversy by taking some very funny pot shots at the certain A-Listers, here’s his introduction from last year to give you a taste
Some took genuine offence, but one who didn’t, in fact one who said that he thought it was the ‘funniest part of the night’ when he was singled out was Johnny Depp. In fact later in the year, Depp made a cameo on Gervais’ new show ‘Life’s too Short’ with some hilarious undertones that many fans thought was real.
This year I wonder if the Hollywood crowd will be more prepared for Ricky’s dry. sarcastic, cutting humour as many were not ready for it last year.
I have to say it was nice to see someone not taking the whole Hollywood scene to seriously, sometimes it would appear that the ‘Yes!’ men get too close to these very high profile people and maybe they themselves then take things a wee bit too serious.
I am sure this weekend we won’t see any punches pulled by Gervais.
The Golden Globes can be seen live on SKY’s Vibe from 2pm Monday the 16th January.
