Ricky Gervais talks Globes on 'Ellen': 'I was just teasing them' -- VIDEO

We’re just three days away from the 2012 Golden Globe Awards ceremony and people are still debating about who got it the worst at last year’s show? Was it some unnamed Scientologists, the gals of Sex and the City, or the typically untouchable A-listers like Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp? (Are you havin’ a laugh, Hollywood? Guess not.)

If you ask Ricky Gervais, it was, well, him. Gervais, who is returning to the scene of the crime this weekend, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about the brouhaha he caused last year. READ FULL STORY

Place your bets! Who will Ricky Gervais skewer the worst at the Golden Globes?

How does one place bets on Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais, a man whose motto when it comes to torturing Hollywood (and Karl Pilkington) is “All bets are off”? You call in the pros, apparently. Irish bookmaker Paddy Power has Russell Brand and Katy Perry as the odds-on favorite to feel Gervais’ wrath on Sunday night. The Arthur star, who recently split from Perry, his wife of 15 months, apparently has 5:1 odds of being the initial target from his fellow funny Brit.

It’s also predicted that Gervais will take aim at targets like Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Justin Bieber, Madonna, Tom Cruise (who many speculated was at the butt of Gervais’ Scientology joke during the 2011 ceremony), and Charlie Sheen. (“Welcome to a night of partying and heavy drinking. Or as Charlie Sheen calls it: breakfast,” he cracked last year.) But, before you fly off to Las Vegas to put down all of your money on those celebs who will soon likely wish they’d kept quieter over the past year, here’s some others dark horses to consider.

Golden Globes 2012: What we hope to see Sunday night

It almost seems pointless to make a wish list for the Golden Globes, as it touts itself, and rightly so, as the unpredictable awards show. After all, this is a ceremony that in years past has had some memorably hilarious — and hystericalacceptance speeches, called Jennifer Love Hewitt‘s name as a nominee, and caused Brendan Fraser do this. Really, anything goes.

So while there are certain things we know we won’t get to see come Sunday night (no possibility of another Melissa McCarthy win… seriously, what gives?) when host Ricky Gervais returns to the scene of the crime, there’s still plenty to look forward to. It’s probably not much of a pipe dream to hope that Gervais won’t go any easier on Hollywood this time around. In fact, Gervais has even more ammunition this year (Jane Lynch and Judd Apatow, watch out) that the whole thing — fingers crossed — could bring even more stunned reactions and some uncomfortable déjà vu. (Sorry, Brad and Angelina!)

Here’s some things we’d like to see happen at this year’s Golden Globes: READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Planner: Brits, tech toys, and gearing up for the Globes


It’s the calm before the storm in entertainment-land this week, as awards season gears up and TV premieres start rolling out. But never fear, PopWatch Planner is here with a roundup of worthwhile entertainment for your week ahead.

Downton Abbey, PBS, 9 p.m.
Absolutely Fabulous, BBC America, 10 p.m.

It’s a double dose of Britain tonight with the season 2 premiere of Downton Abbey on PBS and the 20th anniversary special of Absolutely Fabulous on BBC America. My DVR is in overload mode and I’m making tea and crumpets (and maybe a martini a la Patsy) as we speak.

BCS Championship Game, ESPN, 8:30 p.m.

The college football bowl winners will be crowned Monday in the matchup between the Louisiana State Tigers and Alabama’s Crimson Tide. LSU is 13-0, playing Alabama for the first time since their win against them in early November.

Consumer Electronics Show

Get ready for an onslaught of news about all the new tech toys and Internet crazes of the year to come from the Computer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week. The question remains, just how big a TV is possible?

Top Chef: Restaurant Wars, Bravo 10 p.m.

It’s everyone’s favorite time in the Top Chef season this week — Restaurant Wars. What will the teams be and how will this crew ever decide on a theme? We got a sneak peek in last week’s episode that Sarah will be working at a restaurant called Half Bushel — it’s anyone’s guess what that means….

30 Rock, season premiere, NBC 9 p.m.

Liz Lemon’s back! Feeling forever delayed, the TGS crew is back in action this week and reportedly taking on North Korean leader Kim Jung Il’s death in a sketch. Too soon? You decide.

The Devil Inside (in theaters) … or just rent your favorite horror flick
The new horror movie The Devil Inside opened last week, but is there a better night to see a horror film than Friday the 13th? The film received dismal reviews,  so you may just want to Netflix a classic like Nightmare on Elm Street instead. The Devil Inside was a hit at the box office, though, and surely scared the wits out of thousands of teenagers. Will it continue its frightful success this week?

Saturday Night Live, NBC 11:35 p.m.

Our entertainer of the year, Daniel Radcliffe, hosts Saturday Night Live this week. Can he continue to break the Harry Potter mold and do some groundbreaking comedy?

Golden Globe Awards, NBC, live at 8 p.m. ET, 5 p.m. PT

It’s Hollywood’s favorite night — lower-key than the Oscars, but just as fun, the red carpet rolls out for the Golden Globes. Make sure to check back to EW.com’s Golden Globes special report for real-time coverage and to share your thoughts on all the fashion, winners, losers, and parties.

Golden Globes by the numbers: How long is the red carpet? Who's won the most awards?

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association will host its 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards this Jan. 15. Have you ever wondered how many people will be on hand that day? How big a red carpet would have to be to hold all that high-watt talent? How much all that bubbly costs? Who scored the most Globes but never bagged an Oscar? We’ve got answers!

Poll: Who will be 2012's red-carpet star?

The Golden Globes don’t just kick off the 2012 awards season, but the ceremony also marks the unofficial start of the celebrity-fashion season. Deciding who wore what best on the red carpet is just as exciting and important to some as declaring those magic words, “And the award goes to… ”

Recent red carpet all-stars have included the likes of Mila Kunis, Zoë Saldana, Lea Michele, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Diane Kruger, Sofia Vergara, and Michelle Williams, who could just as easily reclaim those bragging rights this year — she’ll be an awards-show perennial once again thanks to her work in My Week With Marilyn. Or is someone else poised to take over as this year’s fashion icon in Hollywood? READ FULL STORY

Golden Globes snubs: Melissa McCarthy, Jim Parsons... 'Breaking Bad'!?

Everyone — and I mean everyone — loves Melissa McCarthy, star of TV’s Mike and Molly and scene-stealer from this summer’s gal-pal hit, Bridesmaids. So I had to check my Golden Globes scoresheet multiple times before it finally sank in that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association had ignored both her performances this year. Not cool, Hufpa.

Ricky Gervais says he's returning to the Globes to 'shut up all those f--ing idiots'

Ricky Gervais took to his blog to discuss his decision to return as Golden Globes host in 2012. “It was a tough decision to be honest,” he wrote. Of course, he wasn’t concerned about Angelina Jolie’s icy stare, he was more concerned he “couldn’t improve on last year.” He said his list of pros and cons included the consideration that “some people would be uncomfortable with me being host. (This was a pro by the way.)”

But enough with the gravitas! Gervais proved he hasn’t lost his impish spirit with one awesomely defiant statement: “What actually tipped the balance and made me say yes, was the fact that it would shut up all those f—ing idiots who said that I’d never be invited back.” He then wondered, “Is that the wrong reason to do something?” No, Ricky. It most certainly is not. Oh, but there’s more… READ FULL STORY

Ricky Gervais hosting the Golden Globes. Should he be even meaner this year?

Whether you love Ricky Gervais, or loathe the man behind The Office, Extras, and last year’s offensive Golden Globes ceremony, one thing’s for certain: You’re going to tune into the Golden Globes this year. Why wouldn’t you? Gervais made a splash hosting last year, cutting into the likes of Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, and the HFPA itself. But, clearly, members of the latter was not as offended as they seemed to be during and following last year’s ceremony, because Gervais will be back to host the 2012 Golden Globe Awards. Time heals all wounds?

Or, at least, the promise of extra viewers does. READ FULL STORY
