Ricky Gervais won’t do Golden Globes again
Washington: Ricky Gervais has said that he is done hosting the Golden Globe awards and will not go for it again.
The three time awards host termed the experience as a ‘parachute jump’ that can be enjoyed in retrospect.
“I’ve told my agent to never let me be persuaded to do it again though,” Fox News quoted him as saying on his blog.
“It’s like a parachute jump. You can only really enjoy it in retrospect when you realise you didn’t die and it was quite an amazing thing to do,” he added.
The British actor noted that this year’s Golden Globe show went better than the last time.
“I think they finally worked out that my gags only seemed rude and nasty but were actually not too scary at all,” he said.
Gervais received negative feedback for mocking A-list stars in his monologue a year ago. This time around, he gave a tamer performance but still managed to poke fun at some, calling Colin Firth ‘evil’ and Natalie Portman ‘foolish.’
