British funnyman Ricky Gervais is sure to upset TV bosses with his colourful Golden Globe Awards routine in Hollywood on Sunday night (17Jan10) because he has already decided to run with five items he promised to cut from his rehearsal.
The defiant star has always been a risky choice for event organisers, and he's prepared for the backlash.
Speaking on the red carpet before the awards ceremony began, Gervais said, "There were about five things they didn't like. I said I won't do them but I'm going to do them.
"It's live, so what can they do? They can't stop me."
