‘Ricky Gervais mag Golden Globes nooit meer presenteren’

Niet zijn grappen over Angelina Jolie en Johnny Depp (“It seems like everything this year was 3-dimensional – except for the characters in The Tourist“), Charlie Sheen (“It’s going to be a night of partying and heavy drinking — or as Charlie Sheen calls it, breakfast”) of Robert Downey Jr. (“Many of you in this room probably know him best from such facilities as the Betty Ford Clinic and Los Angeles County Jail”) waren de druppel. Nee, dé reden dat de Britse komiek Ricky Gervais de Golden Globes waarschijnlijk nooit meer mag presenteren is een geintje over de Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

“Sommige dingen die hij zei zijn totally onacceptabel,” liet de voorman van de buitenlandsemediaclub Philip Berk weten. “Hij overschreed een grens.”

Ook suggereerde Gervais dat Berk omkoopbaar is. “I’d like to quash this ridiculous rumor going around that the only reason The Tourist was nominated was so the Hollywood Foreign Press could hang out with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. That is rubbish. That is not the only reason. They also accepted bribes.”

UPDATE, 13.00 uur – Reactie Gervais: “If anyone was offended, then I don’t care.
