“I can guarantee that if you’re looking for someone to call people out, we’re not your hosts,” Anne Hathaway recently told The Hollywood Reporter.

Her comment is a reference to the Golden Globes as hosted by Ricky Gervais. The British comedian won a lot of laughs, and raised plenty of eyebrows, with his none-too-subtle barbs aimed at those in the filmmaking industry.

“I think that humor is really difficult to pull off, and I’m not particularly adept at it. I wouldn’t feel comfortable doing it,” Hathaway continued. She’ll be co-hosting the Academy Awards this year with actor James Franco. In the video above, the pair explain how they happened to be paired up as hosts for the event.

“He definitely crossed the line. And some of the things were totally unacceptable,” Philip Berk, President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, made a statement regarding Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais. The comedian, predictably, made jokes about Hollywood’s actors and the event itself -- sparking many groans and much laughter.

“But that’s Ricky,” the president added. “Any of the references to individuals is certainly not something the Hollywood Foreign Press [who hosts the Golden Globes] condones.”

“I had no idea what Ricky was going to say, so anything I heard was the same time you heard it. When you hire Ricky Gervais, you expect the unexpected.”

Golden Globe statues

For the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards, NBC recruited funnyman to host the ceremony for the second year in a row. But will Gervais be the only name making a return appearance at the microphone tonight?

Last year, Michael C. Hall, Alec Baldwin, Julianna Margulies and Toni Collette nabbed acting wins in the Television category. Could we see repeat victories for all four nominees?

At the 2010 event, Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart) bested Colin Firth (A Single Man) for Best Actor in a Drama. Will this be the year that Colin Firth (The King's Speech) takes the statue from Bridges (True Grit)?

Follow our live coverage after the jump and get all of the answers to the above questions and more!

MONDAY (1/10)

  • Inside the Actors Studio (Bravo, 8 P.M.): "James Lipton conducts an interview with actor and funnyman , star of The Truman Show (1998), Man on the Moon (1999) and the Ace Ventura films." This would be an example of a "yes man" interviewing the Yes Man.
  • Lie to Me (FOX, 8 P.M.): "When Cal (Tim Roth) is asked to determine if a mental hospital patient is being held against his will he begins to question his own sanity." When you go from Reservoir Dogs to a television series, it's natural to question yourself occasionally.
  • Castle (ABC, 10 P.M.): "Castle and Beckett interview a top magician (Gilles Marini) after the owner of a magic store drowns in Houdini's legendary water torture tank." Now that's a man who can make magic happen.

Boardwalk Empire

The Golden Globe contenders for the 2010-11 season were officially announced Tuesday morning in Beverly Hills by Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel and Blair Underwood.

Last year's Best Comedy Series winner, Glee, lead all television programs with a total of five nominations. Five series -- 30 Rock, Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, The Good Wife and Mad Men -- tied for second place with three nods each.

Here are some of the notable omissions/inclusions from this year's list of nominees:

  • The Good Wife was the only non-cable series to be recognized for Best Drama.
  • The Walking Dead replaced that other horror series (True Blood), giving AMC two nominations in the Drama category.
  • The limitations of the Best Supporting Actor category meant only two acting noms for the cast of Modern Family.
  • Jennifer Love Hewitt has found herself pitted against Claire Danes ... and Dame Judi Dench.

The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards -- hosted again by Ricky Gervais -- will air Jan. 16 on NBC.

Jane Lynch

UPDATE: It turns out Ed O'Neill was apparently misquoted. You can read the retraction statement here.

“I love Jane, honestly I do. I’m dying to star in one of Christopher Guest’s movies alongside her, but I don’t think she should have gotten the Emmy for that part. [Sue Sylvester] is just a one-note character."

-Modern Family star Ed O'Neill on 's Best Supporting Actress win for her role on Glee. (For the record: Ed was the only adult from his ABC show to not receive an Emmy nomination.)

Tina Fey was awarded the Mark Twain Prize on PBS last Sunday, but viewers didn’t get to hear all of her speech. Fey made the following comments about conservatism and Sarah Palin:

"And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women -- except, of course, those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape kit 'n' stuff. But for everybody else, it's a win-win. …Unless you're a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years -- whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. …Unless you believe in evolution. You know what? Actually, I take it back. The whole thing's a disaster."

MONDAY (10/18)

  • The Real Housewives of Atlanta (Bravo, 9 p.m.): "This Kandi is sweet---she journeys to Palm Springs to extend support to Kim, who's been invited to perform at a gay-circuit party." She wants to be there to laugh with Kim, not at her.
  • Hoarders (A&E, 10 p.m.): "A woman battling cancer has a difficult time with treatments because of the condition of her home, which is covered with rat feces and hair." And she thought it was the chemo that was making her feel nauseated.
  • Weeds (Showtime, 10 p.m.): "The rest of the Botwin clan attempt to move some product at a children's concert." It takes a lot of green stuff for parents to pay for those shows ... and to sit through them, too.
