Los Angeles - Ricky Gervais wants to host the Golden Globe awards again.

The Extras star sparked controversy during his three stints hosting the star-studded ceremony between 2010 and 2012 because of his risqué gags but looking back, he thinks his humour became more well received as time went on.

He told The Hollywood Reporter: ''By the end they realised I was just telling jokes, 'Oh, he's not trying to ruin our life; he's just having a laugh.’ But I think it was right to stop when I did. But I'd love to do it again one day. It's a good, fun industry party.''

After the 2012 ceremony, the British star decided he wouldn't return for a fourth stint because there was nothing left for him to do at the awards.

Ricky, 53, wrote on his official blog at the time: ''Thank f**k that's over. I had a blast actually. It was by far my favourite of the three hosting stints. I've told my agent to never let me be persuaded to do it again though. It's like a parachute jump. You can only really enjoy it in retrospect when you realise you didn't die and it was quite an amazing thing to do.''

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return as hosts for the third time next year.
