Mel Gibson returns to Hollywood spotlight at Golden Globes

Golden Globes to offer a galaxy of stars, if not the Force

Mel Gibson, Jim Carrey, Helen Mirren, Bryce Dallas Howard Kate Hudson, Julianne Moore, Eddie Redmayne, Channing Tatum and Olivia Wilde are some of the big names who will be presenting the 73rd Golden Globe Awards this year. In a recent interview, Ricky Gervais explained what he thinks about the Golden Globes backlash.

Apparently the amusing man has been told he can "say whatever I like again" at this year's Golden Globes, so he has apologised in advance for 'not giving a f***' and being seriously offensive. "I was drunk & didn't give a f-k". We feel like the Globes are in a very tricky place with Gervais at home.

While hugely popular, Poehler and Fey shocked the A-list crowd in 2015 after making jokes about Bill Cosby's sexual assault claims and participating in Margaret Cho's North Korean dictator skit.

In a 2006 drunk driving stop, Gibson said to his arresting officer, "Are you a Jew?" Genuinely. I thought, what have I said wrong?

On his Scientology joke, he told the outlet, "if you can't make fun of religion, what can you make fun of?"

To find out how Gervais does this time around at the Globes, tune in Sunday, Jan. 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC. "I hope some people enjoy it as much as I intend to".

Other tweets referenced the scandals that damaged Gibson's once gold-plated career as one of Hollywood's most bankable stars, directors and producers. I didn't say anything against broadcasting rules. He picked up well-deserved Best Supporting Actor globe a year ago. "I was sure the Golden Globes for special effects would go to the team that airbrushed that poster". Really pathetic. But she learned that valuable lesson you all already knew - never put family first.
