Although the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association said one should "never say never" to another Ricky Gervais-hosted Golden Globes, the HFPA's going in a different direction for 2013.
Instead of another year of laughably awkward moments as Gervais tears into Hollywood from the stage, the HFPA tapped the hilarious tag team of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. (We love Gervais, but the idea of Fey and Poehler hosting anything has our undivided attention.)

Last year critics said he was too harsh. This year they said he was too soft. But next year he might be just right.
It’s too soon to tell, but there’s a chance Ricky Gervais, the Goldilocks of awards show hosts, could return to host his fourth Golden Globe Awards in 2013.
The president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization that puts on the Globes, told The Hollywood Reporter, “Never say never.”

Hopefully Sir Elton John isn't a betting man - or maybe he is, and that's why he appeared to have such a sourpuss on at the Golden Globes last night.
The Brit legend told Carson Daly on the red carpet before the show that while he did have stiff competition in the best original song in a motion picture category, fellow nominee Madonna didn't stand a "f*****g chance" of winning the award.
Madonna's song "Masterpiece" from "W.E." was nominated alongside Elton's work from "Gnomeo & Juliet," "Hello, Hello," and since he chuckled as he said that, we're going to guess it was a joke.

It doesn't get much more elegant than Sidney Poitier and Helen Mirren presenting Morgan Freeman with a Golden Globes honor, but whomever crafted the highlight reel of Freeman's career included an ingenious little clip to remind us of the actor's beginnings.
Freeman, 74, was this year's esteemed recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille award. As Dame Mirren introduced his varied body of work, which includes everything from playing a president ("Deep Impact") to playing Nelson Mandela ("Invictus") to playing God ("Bruce Almighty"), viewers were treated to the sight of a younger Freeman taking a bath in a casket as a vampire on the '70s kids show "The Electric Company."
