Ricky Gervais Golden Globes return planned

He’ll provide commentary for the 2012 ceremony

 
Ricky Gervais’ controversy-packed presentation of this year’s Golden Globes was one of our favourite moments of 2011.
 
And it looks like we’ll be getting more of the same in 2012, albeit in a very different format. 
 
Writing for the Wall Street Journal, Gervais revealed: "I don't think I should host the Golden Globes again, even if I'm asked and that is very unlikely, to be honest...
 
"But because of the greatest thing about our society, freedom of speech, I can still host the Golden Globes, or any event on the planet. 
 
“I am working with a Californian technology company on a live webcast idea.
 
"People watch their TV at the same time as listening to me and a few chums provide our own alternative commentary.”
 
"This is not to steal anyone's thunder, or disrupt pleasant society. It's simply a new horizon. And for its own sake.
 
"I have no idea if it will work but I didn't know if podcasting would work back in 2005 when I launched The Ricky Gervais Show.
 
“I didn't particularly care either. I was doing it for a laugh. There are not many better reasons to do anything."
 
We can’t wait. After all, Gervais had to run his jokes past the Golden Globes producers last year, and he still made headlines around the world. 
 
What will he come out with if he’s completely unfettered by any kind of censorship?
 
Also, ‘me and a few chums’ makes us think that Karl Pilkington will be involved in the webcast at some point.
 
Karl Pilkington hosting the Golden Globes? Now that’s something we’d pay to see. Or listen to. 

Will you be listening to Gervais' webcast in 2012? Tell us below!

      I heard Larry David might stop by to offer his commentary. Now THAT would be awesome.

      You know who I think would make a great host for just about any awards show? Ewan McGregor. He's charming, handsome, has been in countless awesome movies, and everyone loves him. Plus, he could make like Hugh Jackman and actually nail a song and dance number. (Moulin Rouge or Velvet Goldmine proved that.)
