Gluttons for punishment are the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, who don't seem to mind the heaps of scathing contempt lathered on them by Brit comedian Ricky Gervais at last year's Golden Globe telecast. He acted like someone who was hoping to get out of having to host again. While there's no official announcement yet, Variety reports that the HFPA voted for him to come back for a third go-round. If he makes the deal, they deserve whatever vitriol he shoots at them this January.
