How Will the Oscars Top Golden Globes Host Gervais?

Oct 28, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The news that Ricky Gervais will host the Golden Globes has put the pressure on the Oscar telecast to come up with someone — or a bunch of someones — even bigger than Gervais to host their award show, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Hugh Jackman has reportedly nixed a return engagement. The new producers, Bill Mechanic and Adam Shankman, are more interested in using a variety of stars, much like the old "friends of Oscar," as revolving hosts, the Times says.
