Life’s Too Short creator Ricky Gervais has delivered a warning to next year's Golden Globes nominees.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, he said that he is going to host the 2012 awards to silence those who criticised his presentation of this year’s ceremony.

He said: "Mainly I did it to shut those people up, who thought that it was the end of my career, and that everyone was outraged and I was banned from America.

"It's been the end of my career once a week for the last ten years, and whenever there's a scandal, it's always the end of my career. It's ridiculous."

He added: "I shouldn't be doing it for the 20 egos in the room; I should be doing it for the 200 million people watching at home. So I'm going to do it this year.

"I'm going to do that this year, so I'd say to people in the room, 'Be afraid'. I don't know where these people are who are so horrified. But if they were, I don't care either.

"Win, lose or draw, it makes no difference to me doing the Golden Globes. Come Monday morning, I'll be writing something else."
