Last year Ricky Gervais caused quite the stir at the Golden Globes by pretty much saying what everyone was thinking. Jabs were laid out to Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Hugh Hefner and a few more pretty big names. The result was hilarious.
If you haven’t seen the footage, watch it here:
As you an imagine, invitations to come back and host the event again this year have not been sent. There is, however, hope. Mr G thang has posted on his blog that he would like to do a live commentary of the ceremony. Essentially you could flip your boob tube to mute and then get the real goodies from Ricky’s comments. Good times
Here’s the quote from his blog:
What do you think of this?
A live 3 hour podcast during The Golden Globes. Me and a few chums (like Louis CK, Chris Rock, Karl Pilkington, John Stewart, Larry David popping in and out) doing our own alternative commentary.
People at home can have the telly on with the sound down listening to us online say things that no broadcaster could get away with.
No one could do a fucking thing.
The biggest live webcast ever? Who knows? Who cares? What’s fun is the shit we might come out with. No money. No sponsor. No guide lines. Fuck me I can’t wait.
