They've got globes!

Most people in the UK never saw Ricky Gervais charm the pants of Hollywood's elite at the Golden Globes this year, or indeed the last, but they would have seen the media's over-reaction that it was an utter shambles. Er, wrong! Ricky was excellent, did what he was paid to do, he had a light-hearted pop at a bunch of grown-ups who play Let's Pretend for a living.

The awards ceremony, which is a pre-cursor to this month's Oscarsis run by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and according to Ricky himself, he's been asked back to host the event for a third year. Talking to Heat magazine the chuckle brother said, 'The ratings went up again, and the organisers asked me to consider a third year. But I don't think I should. I don't know what I could do better. I certainly couldn't get more press for them, that's for sure. The response was staggering. It was discussed on every news channel and chatshow for weeks.'

Gervais then added, 'the weird thing is, the question is always, 'Did Rickygo too far?' And the answer is always, 'No'. I have yet to find anyone who was actually offended by it.'

And how many people knew what the Golden Globes were before Ricky stamped his brand on it? Exactly.
