Ricky Gervais at the 2012 Golden Globes video

17 January, 2012 by IF

Legendary British comedian Ricky Gervais, best known for co-creating The Office and Extras, was back hosting the Golden Globes on the weekend (Monday our time) after a controversial 2011 gig.

Last year, the hilarious Gervais famously took pot shots at Hollywood and its actors. With many believing he had gone too far, he returned to the Globes' stage in 2012 and was in fine form.
