Five-time Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais minced no words in responding to a question regarding whether or not he desired to host the Golden Globes award show in the future — it’s a hard no.
His answer was posted on Twitter and included a video from the 2020 ceremony he hosted.
During the 2020 awards show’s opening monologue, Gervais took almost eight minutes to skewer the Hollywood elite, Amazon, cancel-culture, Apple, Facebook and others.
Geravais, the creator of the U.K.’s “The Office,” ended his response with a laughing emoji.
The 2020 monologue was posted to Twitter and almost immediately went viral.
Previously RTM noted how Garvais’ clever slam on Hollywood’s woke culture was well received by conservative viewers. Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro wrote at the time:
“Still the single greatest awards show monologue of all time,” said Ben Shapiro.
According to Cision Newswire, the 2023 Golden Globes are scheduled for Jan. 10, 2023 — nominations to be announced on Dec. 12. The 80th annual event has yet to secure a host.
Helen Hoehne, President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), said:
“We are thrilled to announce the return of the Golden Globe Awards on NBC and to hosting the ‘Party of the Year’ for audiences around the world who have been waiting for its return.”
Hoehne lauded the Golden Globes’ move toward diversity, saying, “The HFPA remains committed to important changes and supporting programs which prioritize diversity, inclusion, and transparency.”
Hoehne noted that the “Golden Globe Awards voting body is now 52% female, 51.5% racially and ethnically diverse, with 19.5% Latinx, 12% Asian, 10% Black and 10% Middle Eastern.”
