Update: According to Phil Berk, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (via The Wrap), Ricky Gervais has not been asked back to host. Berk says, "There is no truth to this rumor. We have not asked him to come back."

Hollywood might be obsessed with tired remakes and reboots, and they might also be overly fond of 3D, but one thing's for certain: They're skilled at turning drama into goldmines. This time, it's not pulling a quickly fading star back from self-annhilation -- it's applauding mischief-maker Ricky Gervais.

Some HFPA members may have been ready to have the Golden Globes host's head thrown on a platter after last month's ceremony, but they can't deny the success of his broadcast, and how his humor gave the awards program a needed jolt of adrenaline.

In fact, Gervais's second stint at the Globes was so successful that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association naturally wants him back.
