Ricky Gervais says he's already sorry for what he's going to do as Golden Globes host

Ricky Gervais started the year with an apology for what he’s going to do as host of the 73rd Golden Globes.

Gervais, known for his ruthless jabs and controversial jokes, sent a tweet ahead of hosting the ceremony on Sunday, saying he’ll be drunk and is sorry for what he’s going to say during the show. This is his fourth time hosting the Globes.

Today, he sent another tweet with a picture showing how he is preparing for the gig.

The Golden Globes will take place January 10 and will air at 8 p.m. on NBC. We’ll no doubt be glued to see what Gervais does.
