Ricky Gervais Invited to Host The Golden Globes for Fifth Time

(via Deadline)

Though only a handful of other people have even hosted The Golden Globes, Ricky Gervais might have a chance to host The Golden Globes as many times as Billy Crystal has hosted The Oscars.

He said that was going to be nice before he got into his monologue at last night’s Golden Globes Awards ceremony. Gervais was indeed nicer than his previous times hosting and it looks like that got him the offer for the gig again.  

Billy Crystal has hosted The Oscars 8 times and, if Gervais accepts, this will be his fifth time hosting the ceremony. Given how against the grain the HFPA tends to go with their awards in general, this shouldn’t come as shock.
