Ricky Gervais asked to host the Golden Globes in 2012

Story Ricky Gervais asked to host the Golden Globes in 2012The furor has settled and Ricky Gervais says he has been asked to return as host of the Golden Globes next year after the comedic actor outraging his star-studded audience.

There was disapproval from several celebrities, as well as event organizers, who labeled the jokes “totally unacceptable.”

Even after Gervais refused to apologize it would appear that he has already been invited to front the ceremony for a third time in 2012.  He revealed that he is considering snubbing the invite as he doesn’t think he can top his recent appearance.

In Britain’s Heat magazine, Gervais writes, “I did exactly what I went to do: improve on last year’s and have a laugh. The response was staggering. It was discussed on every news channel and chat show for weeks.”

“The weird thing is, the question is always, ‘Did Ricky go too far?’ And the answer is always, ‘No.’ I have yet to find anyone who was actually offended by it.”

“The ratings went up again, and the organizers asked me to consider a third year. (But) I don’t think I should. I don’t know what I could do better. I certainly couldn’t get more press for them, that’s for sure. You know me. Two seasons is enough.”
