ricky gervaisAfter trashing Angelina Jolie, Charlie Sheen, Hugh Hefner, Mel Gibson, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and God, Ricky Gervais wasn't exactly Mr. Popularity following his Golden Globes hosting gig.

But despite reports of Gervais taking things too far and being permanently banned from the Golden Globes, the funny man says he didn't offend anyone.

"Everyone took it well and the atmosphere backstage and at the after show was great," Gervais said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He also explained his mid-show disappearance, saying, "I did every single introduction I was meant to. There just happened to be a long gap. This is because I was allowed to choose who I would introduce in advance. I obviously chose presenters who I had the best jokes for. (And who I knew had a good sense of humor.)"
