Gervais promises jokes told ‘my way’ at Globes

British comedian Ricky Gervais, who upset some Hollywood stars and others with his biting wit as host of last year’s Golden Globe Awards, has promised his emcee gig this year would not be toned down. Gervais told NBC’s ‘Today’ morning news show that his third time hosting the Hollywood awards, which take place on January 15, would not be dull or censored despite criticism that his jokes last year were mean-spirited and fell flat with the audience of stars such as Robert Downey, Jr. and Angelina Jolie.
