Rickey Gervais might host the Golden Globes; will it inspire a boycott?

As the drama surrounding one major awards ceremony comes to an end, it looks as if it may just be beginning for another.

Ricky Gervais told Access Hollywood NBC want him back to host the 2012 Golden Globes, despite his infamous performance at the 2011 ceremony.

According to Gervais, the lone holdout is the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, who could veto his involvement if they so choose.

“It’s their event. It’s their party.”

Though a Gervais-hosted Globes would surely be a ratings bonanza, it might inspire a boycott from sensitive Hollywood types.

Deadline says at least one “A-lister” is threatening to not attend if Gervais is hired as MC.

Clearly not everyone has as much of a sense of humour as Johnny Depp.

Discuss: Would you like to see Gervais back at the podium?
