Ricky Gervais: Hosting 2011 Golden Globes!

Ricky Gervais has signed on to host the 2011 Golden Globe Awards!

The 48-year-old British actor, who also hosted the 2010 ceremony, brought good ratings to NBC last year as host and is hoping for a second round of success with this year’s show!

“I can’t believe they invited me back after awful things I said,” Ricky joked (via Deadline). “Let’s see how far I can go this time.”

  • Alexa

    Thank GOD! He was such a refreshing presence at this year’s Globes.
    Like him, I was worried that they wouldn’t ask him back coz he SLAYED those over-inflated stars.
    So this is very good. Now I can actually look forward to the Globes next year.

  • Jeff

    never expected that lol

  • Lisa D.

    Totally bummed. He was horrible this past year; a drunk insolent jerk.

  • Janet

    His last comment “thank you god for making me an atheist” sucked!! He is a jerk.

  • Justin Evans

    I can not believe the last statement that Ricky Gervais made. ” And thank you to god for making me an atheist. What a moron, I will never see his crap ever again.

  • Mike

    I am glad someone else agrees. I got blasted on another site and I just think it was weak and mean spirited like his “comedy” tonight regardless what all his fawning fans think

  • Tom

    Mean spirited? Gervais nailing a lot of those pretentious Hollywood stars was legendary – it always surprises me how tame US comedy tastes are – I know they’re the closest things you have to royalty…
    You have issues with Ricky making a joke about god, but it’s the same country that’s happy to pay over 2 million an episode to a sex addict druggie (in a show that is NOT FUNNY).

    When was he drunk? Maybe if some of you were so tight assed you’d actually be able to have a laugh from time to time. Ah well…

    America is one messed up place
