I am remotely posting the news that Ricky Gervais will be the Golden Globes host! Very exciting. Its as good a time as any to talk about Golden Globes possible ten – divided into drama and musical/comedy. Since I’m texting while driving I turn it over to you readers for now.
UPDATE: Hitfix has quotes from Gervais and NBC:
“Not only is this the biggest Hollywood celebration of the industry which includes both film and TV, but also an environment where I feel I can get free reign as a host. I have resisted many other offers like this, but there are just some things you don’t turn down,” Gervais explains in NBC’s press release.
“Ricky is certainly one of the funniest people on the planet and has provided some of the most hilarious and memorable awards show moments in recent memory,” states Paul Telegdy, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, NBC and Universal Media Studios. “His unique comedic style will enhance the only awards show that brings together television and film stars to celebrate entertainment’s biggest night of the year.”
