With just a few hours until show time, Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais isn't feeling so hot.
"I’m a bit stuffy with a bit of a temperature," the "Office" creator told CNN. "It’s raining, I’d rather be at home in my pants eating chocolates and getting drunk."
But Ricky couldn't shirk his duties even if he wanted to - "they’ve paid me and I’ve spent it, so I’ve got to do it now," Gervais said.
When asked what he had in store for the night, the host looked a bit puzzled.
“What do you mean preparing,” the British actor asked. “Should I have done some preparing?”
Whatever tricks Gervais has up his sleeve, they're sure to be hilarious.
Ban Ricky Gervais are they crazy, do you know how many people will watch it next year if they have him host it again just too see his act. If they ban him that would be a mistake for ratings.
ricky gervais is the funniest man on the planet, and i agree they didn't give him nearly enough to do! but they may have been mad at him after his appearance on conan's show earlier in the week. he did not let NBC off the hook for how they're treating conan. the best line of the night was the shot he took at mel gibson. mel took it in good spirits too... maybe he was drunk. ;) by the way, is julia roberts the most self-absorbed twit in hollywood, or what?
Wow, Ricky Gervais is now Ricky G., how cool is that?
Perhaps the Golden Globes are going to make him an even bigger star. Loved his crack about buying a Globe; that could never happen could it?
I thought Ricky G. was rude and stupid. He is NOT funny.
You know, he SHOULD have stayed home in his jammies and gotten drunk! No one would have missed him.
I didn't like the comments he made towards Paul McCartney, Mel Gibson, Jennifer A., etc.
and his "anatomy" is no one's business and not funny at all...
Don't have him come back next year!
Yeah, I thought he was HILARIOUS!!!! Definitely stepped on some toes though, Jennifer Aniston look pretty mad after his comment introducting her. Something to the effect of: speaking of actors who can't move past their careers, here's Rachel from Friends. Wow!! Even when her co-presenter said something about being happy to be there, she just gave a sarcastic "yeah".
Well if you like The Office or Extra's you can thank Ricky Grevais for both of them, He really doesn't have to work now because he has made so much money . He also doesn't have to kiss the studios ass like so many actor/host have to. I thought he did a great job last night, althought I didn't watch it all.
The host was just plain not funny! How sad that he had to joke about part of his anatomy to get a "laugh." If he had any talent, he could have been funny without being vulgar.
Ricky is a pure genius...he had me rolling the whole night ! Especially the one directed at Paul McCartney !
Ricky is a breath of fresh air. Loved him!
The only problem with his performance was that there wasn't enough of it.
I kept yelling, "Go Ricky, Go Ricky."
Yes, that cheer is originally for Ricki Lake, but move over, honey, there's a new Ricky in town.
(that was probably the cheesiest post I've ever written – well, in the top 100 anyway)
I think Ricky did a great job. Very refreshing from the normal dribble we get. He stepped on some toes for sure. Sir Paul McCartney did not look pleased with Ricky's, "he spent a lot of money last year", comment referring a divorce settlement. At Least Mel Gibson took his shot with good nature. He was looking like, "what'cha gonna do, it's true?" However that's an old story not worth remembering. One thing I don't like about Ricky Gervais is he seems a bit pretencious and a little too big for his shoes.
