ricky gervais ellen degeneres 320 'Ellen DeGeneres Show': Ricky Gervais on the Golden GlobesWatch Ellen DeGeneres interview Ricky Gervais, wherein he talks about hosting the Golden Globes, reveals his Elmo boxer-briefs and calls Julia Roberts a prostitute… [long pause] in a film.

We think the Golden Globes might be extra funny and ridiculous this year with Brit Ricky Gervais as the host.

It’s already known as “the fun awards,” people are probably going to be drinking at the event and Gervais is the extra variable added to the equation this year.

We can’t remember the last time we were so excited about an awards show! Oh wait, it was when Neil Patrick Harris hosted the Emmys last year. Either way, Sunday night should prove extraordinarily fun.

The Golden Globes airs live in all time zones Sunday, Jan. 17 on NBC starting at 8 p.m. EST.
