(Newser) – Ricky Gervais, who will you skewer tonight? The third-time Golden Globes host won't say but does promise that "the tone is going to be the same" as last year, when he insulted everyone from Charlie Sheen to Angelina Jolie, the Huffington Post reports. "Let's get this in perspective: They're the wealthiest, most privileged people in the world," Gervais told Esquire. "Imagine if I had gone out there and said, 'We're all in the same gang. Aren't we brilliant? Us millionaires together.'"

Deadline Hollywood's claim that "suspense and fear around town ... grows by the hour" may be an exaggeration, but A-list celebs could have to smile through nasty Gervais putdowns. MTV predicts that unkind cuts will go to The Help, the new Two and a Half Men, and Kim Kardashian's brief marriage. Gervais says he's already skewered one victim: those who said he'd never be invited back. He took the hosting gig partly to "annoy" them.
