After Ricky Gervais seemed to offend half of Hollywood at this year’s Golden Globes, many said that he would never work in Hollywood again, let alone host the show again.
Well it seems that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association do like the controversy (some would say fun) that Gervais brings to the Awards ceremony, as they’ve asked him to host next year’s ceremony!
The official twitter account for the Golden Globes (@goldenglobes) confirmed this news by tweeting, “Ricky Gervais will host the 69th Golden Globe Awards on January 15, 2012.”
Ricky Gervais also confirmed the news by tweeting a photo of himself and Billy Crystal and added “Just told Billy Crystal he’d better not use any of my holocaust or pedophile material at The Oscars. He agreed (true)” (@rickygervais)
I wonder who is going to be in the firing line and how many people Gervais is going to piss off next year. The 2012 Golden Globes just got interesting!
Below is Gervais’ opening monologue from this year’s Golden Globes Ceremony

About The Bellissimo Files
I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents!
As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen!
This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t.
Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings.
Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions.
I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk)
The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site.
