Ricky Gervais is back as host for the 73rd Golden Globes, and it's got many thinking: Perhaps the fourth time will be the charm?
The comedian hosted the awards show for three years starting back in 2010. While he brought in solid ratings, Gervais' sense of humor wasn't exactly popular, especially with some of the nominees.
In fact, The Huffington Post reported back in 2011 that Gervais promised to push the comedic button even further for his third time as host, writing in a blog post, "This year I'm going to make sure [the celebrities'] offense is completely justified."
