I’m not going to host Golden Globes again, says Ricky GervaisJanuary 19th, 2011 - 5:58 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 19 (ANI): British comedian Ricky Gervais has vowed not to host the Golden Globes again.
Gervais’ decision came after his weekend stint as host of the award show, which was later criticized by the critics.
“I’m not going to do it again,” the Telegraph quoted Gervais as telling celebrity website TMZ in a brief video interview on the streets of New York.
“I think twice is enough,” he added.
The creator of hit TV show ‘The Office’ took shots at the televised gala dinner at the weekend at actors Charlie Sheen, Robert Downey Jr, Scientologists, the Golden Globe-nominated movie “The Tourist” and even the Hollywood Foreign Press Association which organises the annual event celebrating the best in film and television.
But his caustic brand of humour went too far for many U.S. critics, and made some members of the star-studded Beverly Hills audience uncomfortable. Downey Jr remarked on stage on Sunday that the ceremony was “unusually mean-spirited.” (ANI)
