70th Golden Globes get a touch of feminine humor
- 69th Ricky Gervais hosted this show for the fourth time despite literally no one, including himself, believing that he would. Check out his opening monologue and you can spot the 70th Annual Golden Globes hosts sitting together and looking fabulous at 3:10. Ricky ended up using the F-word during the ceremony, but who can blame him?
- 68th For his third time hosting, Ricky did a wonderful job. And then rumors started flying that he would be fired after his performance. “That’s ominous, isn’t it?” he asked OK! Magazine, when he hadn’t been asked to return for the 69th show yet. “So I probably won’t be here next year.”
- 67th This marked the second time that Ricky hosted the award show; in 2008, the year before, the Golden Globes saw the worst ratings since 1995. This was probably because those Globes were pretty much cancelled due to the writers’ strike. So, this might be, technically, the first time we really saw Ricky host the awards.
» A new feminine touch: Next up? The leading ladies Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are excited to host the 70th Annual Golden Globe awards. “They’re two of the funniest people in show business,” Globes’ executive producer Allen Shapiro said. In a statement, Ricky wished the two luck: “After failing three years in a row to make E! Channel’s Best Dressed list, I decided to hand over the reins. Let me know if you run out of Scientology gags.” Tina and Amy have been besties for over a decade, so this ceremony should be a treat to watch.source
