Hollywood is abuzz today with the rumor that Ricky Gervais has been banned from ever hosting any stateside awards show again. Apparently he ruffled a few feathers during his monologue and intros Sunday night. If you watched it, you probably noticed the sparse and tense applause and laughs from the Hollywood Elite in attendance. We admit, it seemed a little mean-spirited, but that's Gervais. He created 'The Office'. He knows smug and self-important when he sees it. Judge for yourself: Watch the video below.
