HFPA Hates Ricky Gervais

A member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association told Pop Eater’s flacky PR-inspired editor, Rob Shuter, that “Ricky will not be invited back to host the show next year, for sure.” Seriously? Shocking! Especially since the comedian previously said he had no plans on hosting another Golden Globes and therefore promised to push the boundaries, so this really isn’t all that surprising.

However, this is: The same person told Shutter that regardless of how talented Gervais is, he can forget about their masturbatory nominations going forward, “For sure any movie he makes he can forget about getting nominated. He humiliated the organization last night and went too far with several celebrities whose representatives have already called to complain.” He insulted celebrities? What a monster! Still, it was great for ratings!
