Toby Young: Shambolic performance, Ricky ... I don't expect to see you Globe trotting again next year
FOR almost 12 months Ricky Gervais has been telling anyone who'll listen that he really doesn't care about the Golden Globes. Two months ago, he told an interviewer: "I do the Golden Globes like some people play golf. Win, lose or draw, it doesn't affect me. I'm not beholden to anyone. I don't have to be nice to directors. I don't have to be nice to anyone."
Last week he added: "Maybe I'll be a bit more chilled about it this year. Or not. Whatever. I don't care''.
Well, judging from last night's performance as host, this isn't an affectation. He really doesn't care.
