As host of the Golden Globe Awards, Ricky Gervais took sharp, arguably cruel jabs at targets including Charlie Sheen, Cher, the film “The Tourist” and even the sponsoring Hollywood Foreign Press Association. I say, WELL DONE! BRAVO! I mean, REALLY, he was the only thing that made a usually tedious, ho hum awards show EXCITING… For once! It’s usually a total snooze. Gervais was only keepin’ it real!
“I was just doing my job,” he insists. “If they didn’t want me, they shouldn’t have hired me,” the British barb-slinger said on CNN‘s “Piers Morgan Tonight.”
“I don’t think I did anything wrong,” Gervais said. “Those were like gibes at these people, and I’m sure they’ve got a sense of humor.
“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.”
Gervais, who was making his second appearance as Golden Globes host, said he took the job on the condition that he could say what he wanted. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which administers the Globes, didn’t clear his material beforehand.
“They didn’t want to see it,” he said.
There has been no official word on whether Gervais will be back next year, but I can only hope he WILL be!
