LOS ANGELES:-

Ricky Gervais again proved his penchant for provocation Sunday as he returned as host of the Golden Globe Awards, ribbing Hollywood’s A-listers with at times uncomfortable jokes. The sharp-tongued British comic — the host of the awards from 2010-2012 before being replaced by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler — appeared to relish his bad boy reputation as he took the stage at the Beverly Hilton. “Shut up, you disgusting, pill-popping deviant scum!” he said by way of greeting the crowd.–AFP
