The Golden Globes are always the best (read: funniest, meanest, drunkest) awards show of the season, so hallelujerrrr that Ricky was indeed asked to host again.  Those smug, uptight Hollywood-types need to be CHECKED at least once a year, and he’s just the bloke to do the job!

Johnny vs. Ricky?

Oh, Johnny Depp and Ricky Gervais. I could watch these two all day…here’s a clip from Ricky’s show on BBC2:

 

If you’ll recall, (and it does seem like ages ago) Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globe Awards earlier this year.  I’m amazed at the idiots out there who simply cannot take a joke, by the way. Actually, I’m not.  Let’s take a quick stroll down Hilarity Lane, shall we?

“The Office star said [during the Golden Globe Awards]:

“It was a big year for 3D movies. Toy Story, Despicable Me, Tron… seems like everything was three-dimensional except the characters in The Tourist.”

But a source has said that “Johnny will definitely guest star” in Ricky’s new BBC2 show.

“Johnny is a huge fan of Ricky’s and has a great sense of humour. He has wanted to work with Ricky for ages and this is it,” they told the Sun.

GAAAAAH!

I wish these two would do more than just this tidbit of awesomeness…
