Ricky Gervais Offers to Host the Oscars "Drunk" in 2015, Tom Bergeron Throws Shade at Ellen DeGeneres

Is Ricky Gervais offering to lend his services for the Academy Awards in 2015?

That certainly seemed to be what the comedian was suggesting when he took to Twitter on Sunday night. In fact, he was very specific on how he would handle the gig if given to him.

"RT if you'd like me to host next year's Oscars, drunk, without any rehearsals," he wrote, along with a photo of himself flipping the bird.

Of course, Gervais already has some experience when it comes to being an emcee, having hosted the Golden Globes three times.

What's more, before Ellen DeGeneres was tapped to oversee this year's Oscars, he had actually expressed interest in the job, telling GoldDerby.com editor Tom O'Neil last June that he would be "incredibly flattered" if he were asked to host Hollywood's biggest night. "It would be a thrill and an honor."

He added at the time, though, "I doubt the job offer would come without some strings attached. The worst string being, handing in my credentials as a comedian in favor of a family entertainer."

And speaking of DeGeneres, Dancing With the Stars host Tom Bergeron seemed to throw a little shade her way during Sunday night's telecast.

"Is Ellen missing cues because she's watching something better backstage?" he tweeted.

Ouch!

So, would you like to see Gervais host the Oscars? And was Bergeron being too critical of DeGeneres? Tell us in the comments!
