Ricky Gervais claims Golden Globes open to him hosting again

Though the Hollywood Foreign Press Association chastised Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais for occasionally going too far with his jokes during the televised awards show two weeks ago, the comedian blogs that the HFPA hasn’t ruled out inviting him back. Gervais remained unapologetic about his jokes, which some celebrities found mean-spirited, writing: “The ratings went up again, and the organizers asked me to consider a third year. 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.”

A call to the HFPA was not immediately returned.
