Ricky Gervais -- I Will NOT Host the 'Globes' Again

1/18/2011 3:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ricky Gervais doesn't care if he's ever asked back to host the Golden Globes"" ... because he's "not gonna do it again anyway."

A smiling Gervais was weathering the storm in New York this morning -- following his super-controversial statements at the awards show -- when Ricky told us, "I think twice is enough."

After the photog mentioned that Ricky's fellow comics seem to be standing by the performance -- Gervais replied, "Well, it's nice to be loved by your peers ... they stick by you."

how many of you Ricky Gervais fans are over the age of 25., because you all sound to young to understand what rude and crude and hurtful mean...did he tell the truth or his truth...he didnt know anything for sure when he was making accusations, against people last nite. it doesnt matter to him most of these people have children who may have been watching.Tell me, would it still be funny if it was your children hearing horrible things someone said about you. truth or otherwise...nobody deserves that .

It's because most of us have the ability to, Oh I don't know, TAKE A JOKE. There's no reason to take everything so damn seriously. You've got to laugh at yourself once in a while.

I sat down to watch yet another boring award show and was surprised by ricky gervais's performance. What a refreshing change - he only said what most of us think anyway. These shows have become sterile and politically correct so it was great to see someone who bought some excitement to an otherwise boring long winded event.

How many pats on the back and awards shows do you actually need to make yourself feel relevant?

Bravo to Gervais. These times are mean spirited. His words were no more hateful than anything you'd read on a Fox website.

I love Ricky Gervais, his movies, his HBO specials, Extras, etc., and I thought hosting the GG would be a good chance for him to be classy but I was surprised at how mean spirited he came across ...

I mean, what's the point??? It just seemed unnecessary and kind of weird. He could have done much better - tho some of it was funny.

The problem that I have is not that Ricky is a "bad comedian" because I think he is hilarous, the problem is the producers of the GG decided not to watch or screen his comedy before he steps on that stage. It's like hiring Andrew Dice Clay without knowing who he was...all you know is that he is a comedian and must be funny because a lot of people watch him. Cmon people, get with it. The GG screwed up if they did not want him to make those kind of jokes. The same situation happened when Eddie Griffin was invited to a Golf get together and he did not know he was performing when he got there and they asked him not to use the n word or mother "f". And Eddie Griffin said "This is not me. This is not Eddie Griffin, if you wanted soft comedy you should have called Bill Cosby." So they agreed to let him be him and they cut the mic off on him on the first joke and he walked off stage and took his money. The thing is people GET OVER IT. It's comedy. And all Ricky was doing is making fun of the rumors about people, not necc. taking shots at celebrities. Stop being personal and uptight. Relax and have some fun. It's an award show for crying out loud. And besides how do you know that they did not set this up for publicity....i mean it is hollywood...

And to people that are tired of seeing gay people in everything...f'n deal with it. We are not in the 1950's nor 60s. There is no reason to hide in fear anymore. We are not promoting sex in everything that you see a gay person in. And Debbie you must have been in a strip club because what type of parties are you going too? Let me know...sounds like a blast lol....You are probably the type of person that clinches your pocketbook everytime a black person walks by. Stop being close minded because one day, a gay person may have to help you or save or life or something. Then what would you say??

This kind of event needs a comedian with some class, which is not what's his name. Ugh. I will be surprised if he will ever get work in the future.

Hey "Debbie" or Number 13... You are a ****ing Homophobe. No one shoved anything "Gay" down your throat. You watched the Golden Globes and probably the pre-show on E. It's fashion and it's celebrities. Gays don't watch Football and bitch that the straights are shoving their "agenda" down their throats. So grow up and get with the 21st century. Gays are here, and you're brother or cousin is probably one. So get a ****ing life.

Wow Debbie #13 and #54 and Fran (the dumb **** after her) I can't believe you two exist in this world. Why do you watch TV or movies from this decade? It sounds like TVLand is the only channel you should be watching. Those 1950s "morals" are up your alley. I hope your children are Gay and that because of your evilness towards the lifestyle that they kill themselves due to your bullying, and BLAME you for it. GROW UP! ((oh and Debbie, no one hits on 50 year old women you liar))

Hey "Posted at 11:13 AM on Jan 18, 2011 by NICOLE" no one said anything about John Travolta or Tom Cruise.... you assume that's what the joke was about, which makes you part of the joke.
