Golden Globes Host Ricky Gervais Has Only Seen One of the Nominated Films (VIDEO)

Ricky Gervais, 'Today'Back for his second straight year as host, Ricky Gervais admitted to Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira on 'Today' (Weekdays, 7AM on NBC) that of all the Golden Globe nominees, he's seen exactly one film: 'Inception.' "So that's got a good chance," he concluded.

Gervais was in fine form, sparring with the hosts, playing up his patented faux-arrogance while keeping things light and funny. After watching a commercial for the NBC broadcast of the 2011 Golden Globes on February 16, he noted, "I didn't hear my name until right at the end."

The Globes is always a bit of an odd duck, combining television and movie awards into the same event. And as Lauer described beautifully, "You've got an incredibly eclectic room. Half of them are three sheets to the wind, and you've got to hold it all together."

It's a job Gervais does quite well; he's completely confident in that environment. After all, those are his people. The biggest key to his success last year? "I just don't think you have to worry about it," he explained. If he's having fun, hopefully it will permeate the room and even through the cameras to make it a fun viewing experience for everyone. And that's what the Golden Globes are all about.
