Ray Richmond is contributing to Deadline’s Golden Globes coverage.
Deadline caught up with Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais at the HBO afterparty, where he was just sitting down to a post-ceremony cocktail.
DEADLINE: So how do you think it went this time? Better than a year ago?
GERVAIS: Oh much. The crowd was with me this time. They went where I went. It’s like they were ready for me this time and it felt pitch-perfect.
DEADLINE: What happened when you wound up saying “Fucking” during the show. What was that all about? Was that your way of getting back at the HFPA?
GERVAIS: Oh no no no. The censors knew it was coming. That was planned.
DEADLINE: So do you think we’ll see you back for another year of hosting the Golden Globes?
GERVAIS: No. I’m really done this time. It’s enough. Three is plenty — at least that’s what Charlie Sheen told me.
