Ricky Gervais is back to hosting the Golden Globes



tbd-gervaiscrystal111711.jpgEven after last year's skewering of the rich and shameless, Ricky Gervais is returning for a third round of hosting the Golden Globes, the L.A Times reports. Don't worry, divas and egomaniacs, Ricky's the one making that yawner even remotely watchable, so it's a good thing.

"Just told Billy Crystal he'd better not use any of my holocaust or pedophile material at The Oscars. He agreed (true)," Gervais tweeted via @rickygervais on Wednesday. Boy, this just gets better and better.

Gervais' performance in January was infamous for his ripping of Charlie Sheen, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and even untouchables like Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. No one in Hollywood really seemed to think it was funny, but his mean-spirited teardown made it the best Golden Globes in years. And he thought they'd never invite him back. Eddie Murphy must have been busy for that one, too.
