-Hollywood is prepared for anything except for what this man
will say on stage tonight — our host, Ricky Gervais. Jane, lovely to see you both. Welcome back to the Golden Globes. -It´s wonderful to be here. -When I heard the announcement that you signed on to host
again, my first question was — Well, I thought, “Great, but why?”
Why did you want to do it again? -I don´t know. As I put down the phone, I said, “Why am I doing this again?
That´s Christmas ruined.” So I was writing jokes. Yeah. -Over the holiday break? -I cannot wait for this to be over. Like the audience. They´re gonna enjoy it more than me,
and I´m gonna say awful things about them. -So will you push it, will you be right up to that line
or are you gonna cross that? Where will we land at the end? -I´ll do the same old thing I always do.
I just hope they´re more used to it now. That´s what I´m hoping. -Do you ever feel any awkwardness in the room
when you call someone out? -Yeah, but I like that. -That eggs you on. -That´s my extreme sport.
Do you know what I mean? Some people do drugs.
Some people jump out of planes. -Awkwardness. -I say awful things to their face and see what happens. -Jane, has he run through the whole opening with you? -Oh, yes.
-And have you had feedback? -A couple of times, I´ve said, “No. Mnh-mnh.” -“Not that one.”
-“Please don´t.” -Will he listen? -That´s what she says.
She says, “Please don´t.” -Okay.
-Yeah, she uses emotional blackmail. So — so, yeah. -I saw the producers yesterday, and I said,
“Have you seen Ricky´s opening?” They said, “Yeah, it´s going to be great, obviously.” I said, “Have you seen everything?”
They said, “Of course, we´ve seen it all.” Have they seen everything? -I did the… [ Laughs ] There might be a couple of ad libs.
I don´t know. But, no, I showed it to them because, you know what? I´ve never — The lawyers see it and I don´t think they´ve ever asked me not to do something
´cause I sort of know what I´m doing. I don´t break the law. I don´t libel anyone.
I tease them. -All in good fun.
-Yeah. Yeah. -Have a sense of humor. -But I´m gonna tell them that straight —
I´m gonna say, “Listen, they´re just jokes.” -Yeah, that´s right.
-I´m gonna remind them. -Will you have a frothy beverage this time around? -I will have a frothy beverage. -I love that when you walked up, just set your beer down. -Yeah. Yeah. I will have a fro– That´s not a prison euphemism.
He means a beer. -Yeah.
-Just — just… -Just be clear to the worldwide audience. I know that you´re busy, and you came out to say hello
to us, so thank you very much for doing so. -Now I got to go back and sit behind, wait for it to start. -What will you do in the final minutes? -I´ll sit down and have a drink and check my fly,
and that´s it. -Okay, good.
-Yeah. -Priorities. Wonderful to see you. Have fun tonight. Good luck.
Nice to see you. Happy New Year.
