When it comes to silver-tongued Hollywood stars, there aren’t even a few that can compare to the legendary Ricky Gervais. From roasting some of the most popular and influential identities in the world to infuriating whole communities with his sense of dark humor, there’s nothing that this The Office star hasn’t done in his career. He’s also well-known for his appearance as the emcee at the Golden Globes awards, several times in a row no less.

And knowing his persona, when a fan asked him if he wanted to host the 2023 Golden Globes Awards as well, he had the most simple yet comical response as an answer, sticking to his nature.

Simple Tweet, Yet An Impactful One!

After a fan shared a video of Gervais hosting the Hollywood ceremony in 2020 for the fifth time, the Twitter user asked to retweet the clip “if you wish [Gervais] would host the Golden Globes again in 2023.”

And as you would expect from Gervais, his answer was simple.

“F*** that”


This simple tweet gave us a clear indication that Gervais has little to no desire to be the host of the next Golden Globes Awards, and we cannot blame him for this. How long before you grow old seeing the same distinguished faces of stardom over and over again?

Why Won’t Ricky Gervais Host It Again?

His comment comes as the Hollywood Foreign Press will return to televise their event in 2023 after the 2022 ceremony was reduced to a press release following backlash for their lack of diversity. Meanwhile, in a 2021 interview, Gervais talked about his approach to hosting these types of events and knowing who his audience is.

“Do I pander to the 200 billionaires in the room or the 200 million people at home sitting in their [underwear] drinking beer who aren’t winning awards, who aren’t billionaires?” he told The Guardian.

As of late, Gervais has also been shooting for his Netflix special Supernature, and says that he is happy with what he is doing right now.
