Ricky Gervais Prepped For More Globes Zingers
When Ricky Gervais hosted The Golden Globes last year, he famously ruffled a few feathers by making fun of Hollywood right in front of of their faces. Some people thought he crossed the line, but just as many laughed till they were in stitches. What, you might wonder, will Gervais do this year when he hosts the Globes again on January 15?
Gervais said that he has his work cut out for him, which means improving on what he got wrong last time. "I tried too hard with the shtick, the comedy, and I should have just gone out there and done zingers, I think, because the attention span of someone at an award show, particularly the Golden Globe, is about a second," Gervais told Matt Lauer on Today.
But don't expect Gervais to go soft on the humor; he's still standing by those zingers — jokes about Robert Downey, Jr., closeted scientologists and the ladies of Sex and the City. "I don't know what I did wrong, really. What did I say that was untrue? I made a joke suggesting that Charlie Sheen might like a night out. I said that Robert Downey Jr. spent some time in clinics. And he did. I'm not judging him by that; it's a joke," he said.
