Ricky Gervais May Return As Golden Globe Host

Ricky Gervais, Golden Globes

Ricky Gervais may be returning as host of the Golden Globes, despite his controversial display in 2010.

The New York Post reports Gervais was spotted eating dinner with the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which puts on the Globes, and an executive from NBC, which broadcasts it.

The British comic’s notorious and hilarious skewering of celebrities such as Robert Downey Jr., Tom Cruise and Tim Allen during last January’s ceremony prompted questioning into whether he would work in Hollywood again, let alone be asked back to MC the Globes.

Gervais, who had previously stated he wouldn’t return to the Globes if asked, then tweeted out a link to the New York Post item, adding the message “Ooooooh! The plot thickens…Thoughts?”

You can watch Gervais’s controversial opening monologue from the 2011 show below.
