Ricky Gervais is hosting the Golden Globes ... again

Personally, we thought certain celebs were being a bit infantile (read: bratty) last year when they whined about being made fun of by Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais. You're being made fun of at the Golden Globes, for crying out loud - things could be worse.

Gervais, likewise, didn't think his comments were out of line.

"I don't think I was nasty," Gervais told Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show Thursday. "I think comedy comes from either a good or a bad place, and I was just teasing them, ya know? It wasn't a roomful of wounded soldiers. These are the richest, most privileged people in the world."

Gervais will take another crack at hosting the awards show Sunday at 8 p.m. on NBC.
