British comedian Ricky Gervais was relieved the annual Golden Globes celebrations had been cancelled, because he hates having to dress up for awards shows. The 2008 ceremony was replaced with a low-key press conference on Sunday (13Jan08), after Hollywood stars refused to cross the Writers Guild of America picket lines. And Gervais - who won the Best TV Comedy prize for his hit show Extras - decided against watching the winners' announcement live on television - preferring to spend his time in the comfort of his bed. He says, "I'm not gonna get up at 3am to watch the awards. At least this year I didn't have to wear a dickie bow (bow tie). I found out in my pyjamas in my bed, and then I turned my phone on and people started ringing."
