Asked if he will return to host the prize-giving event for the fourth time, the 'Life's Too Short' co-creator says, 'I'm really done this time.'

This year's Golden Globes will likely be the last time for hosting the HFPA-presented show. At the HBO post-Golden Globes party, the British actor ruled out the possibility of tackling the same duty for the fourth time. "I'm really done this time. It's enough," he stated. "Three is plenty - at least that's what told me."

While hosting the Sunday, January 15 ceremony, Gervais inserted an expletive word in his line. Asked if it was his way of getting back at the HFPA, the co-creator of "" quickly cleared things up as saying, "Oh no no no. The censors knew it was coming. That was planned."

Despite getting negative feedbacks last year for mocking some top-notch stars, Gervais still poked fun at the A-list guests this year. He used the word "evil" to describe , and called "foolish".

Still, the 50-year-old thinks that the show went better than a year ago. "The crowd was with me this time. They went where I went. It's like they were ready for me this time and it felt pitch-perfect," he reasoned.
