All eyes on Ricky Gervais at today's Golden Globes

ALL eyes are on Ricky Gervais today as he returns to host the Golden Globes.

Gervais hosted the glittering film and TV awards from 2010 through 2012, managing to offend much of the A-list audience with his no-holds-barred jibes.

The comedian and actor has promised no "collateral damage" from his jokes at today's awards but is already off to a colourful start, this morning tweeting "better get dressed and offend some humourless (expletive) I suppose".

The post has been retweeted more than 2,500 times.

Gervais told the Hollywood Reporter he was surprised audiences found him so offensive in his previous Golden Globes appearances.

The awards ceremony will be broadcast live from 11am Qld, noon NSW time on Foxtel.
