  • Ricky Gervais hopes and plans on hosting the Golden Globes on the Conan O’Brien show

Ricky Gervais appeared on the Conan O’Brien show and talked about how he thought he should perform this time while hosting the Golden Globes awards ceremony.

Last year was Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s third and last year (if they don’t decide to do it again); hosting the Golden Globe awards. The American Foreign Press had to find someone people would love this year after Fey and Poehler and Ricky Gervais’ little ‘acting drunk and saying brash things on stage’ last year while presenting the Best Actress Award in a Comedy or Musical might have earned him the offer to host the Golden Globes for the fourth time.

Ricky Gervais was on the Conan O’Brien show talking about his own hopes and expectations this year as he will be hosting the awards after a three years long hiatus. Ricky told Conan that when he hosted the awards for the first time, it was very exciting and he thought he could do better. That was the motivation behind him taking it again.

His second time was completely bizarre as he managed to piss everyone off, according to THR. Still he was offered it again and he did it a third time just because people said that he wouldn’t never get invited back. He said that he just did it to show them. Then he took three years off.

He said that now, you sort of want to improve. That’s a given that one always wants to improve but this time around he doesn’t know whether to put in more effort or get drunker. He said that he had initially refused to host the show but then agreed because he was given his freedom to speak his mind. He said they told him the magic words which were 'you can say what you want again. So he was in again.

He agreed that no one wanted to be the butt of a joke, but he’s not trying to ruin their night. He’s making jokes, he explained. He added that he’ll do it about things they've done, not about things they can't help.

Conan tried helping explain what Gervais meant in choosing his jokes, but in turn became the target of the Golden Globes host when Gervais said that he wouldn't come out and go 'oh look, it's a ginger Frankenstein,' " he said, pointing at the redhead, six-foot-four O'Brien.
