RICKY GERVAIS WON’T BE BACK TO HOST THE GOLDEN GLOBES, BUT WAS IT WORTH IT?
Has Ricky Gervais forever changed the job of Award Show Host? His insult humor got the celebrities at the Golden Globes riled up and the Hollywood Foreign Press seething, but it seems the TV audience got a kick out of it. Cameras caught actors wincing and looking shocked or bursting out with embarrassed laughter in the show audience. Ricky WAS funny when he introduced A-list actors by listing the worst movies they ever made. And calling Bruce Willis “Ashton Kutcher’s father” WAS amusing. Poking fun at pompous pampered stars IS delicious and it’s fun to see their reactions. When Ricky insulted the president of the HFPA by saying he just had to “help him off the toilet and pop his teeth in” he must have known he wouldn’t be invited back- either to host or accept an award. How did YOU like Ricky as the insult host?
