Why will Ricky Gervais 'never be allowed to host the Oscars'?
Ricky Gervais may not have hosted the Oscars this year, but he's revealed what viewers could expect if he did land the prestigious gig.
As a five-time host of the Golden Globes (2010, 2011, 2012, 2016, and 2020), Gervais is no stranger to hosting an awards show and roasting celebrities in the process.
While this year's Oscars took place, the After Life star answered questions from fans and gave a sneak peek at how he would have opened the show.
“I’d start with ‘Hello. I hope this show helps cheer up the ordinary people watching at home. If you’re unemployed for example, take some comfort in the fact that even if you had a job, your salary probably wouldn’t be as much as the goody bag all the actors have just been given,’” he tweeted.
"I'm proud to announce that this is the most diverse and progressive Oscars ever. Looking out I see people from all walks of life. Every demographic under the sun. Except poor people, obviously. F*** them."

“Jada, I love you. GI Jane 2, can’t wait to see you,” Rock joked, referring to Pinkett Smith's shaved head which she revealed last year she shaved after her alopecia diagnosis.
A video from the official David Brent account was retweeted by Gervais and the clip was a snippet from The Office, where his character said: "Particularly for his wife. And she’s got alopecia. So... not a happy homelife.”
Since resharing the clip, the video has received over 50,000 likes as people commented on how there is a clip of The Office for any situation.
How bizarre. What are the odds of a renowned host of an award ceremony having an old clip that correlates to a t the incident that happened to another host of an award ceremony? Brilliant.https://twitter.com/DavidBrentMovie/status/1508404231132307459?t=ZtUrSmwXaOtNlN6BIxZZWw&s=19\u00a0\u2026
