image for Ricky Gervais to host Golden Globe Awards 2012 - Imagine it without him!
Auditioning for David Brent

Philip Berk, president of HFPA said yesterday: 'Ricky pissed a few people off, but nobody important. Besides, most took the humour in good faith and those that didn't can piss off.'

The bold statement from Berk comes when most thought Gervais would be lucky to open a packet of crisps in 2012 let alone the Globes. Max Exposure, columnist at the Tribune said: 'As far as I'm concerned Gervais shot his bolt this time. He'll be as welcome as a turd in a handbag next year.

However, many disagree with the fact Gervais went over the top. 'The Globes are a big subject in the UK at the moment where normally they would have passed through like a spicy vindaloo,' said one British hack. 'Although the show was its normal drab content, having Gervaise at the helm the Globes gained more column inches than John Holmes,' he added.

The last word has to go to Gervaise himself when he said: 'After a quick ring by Phillip Berk he realised Sam Fox and Mick Fleetwood are busy doing 'Come Dine With Me,' Graham Norton was too offended by the Scientology joke and nobody in the US knows Jonathan Ross.'
Gervais went on to add: 'Berk did consider Tim Allen as host but realised funny lines from him are about as frequent as quarks and I don't mean the barman from Star Trek.'

On hearing the news about Gervais Downey Jr said: 'I wont be there, now will somebody buy me a fuckin drink in here, hic.'
