Ricky Gervais has a bit of beef with E!'s Fashion Police.

On Monday, it was announced that funny gals Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will cohost the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, and today, the snarky Brit (and host for the past three years) shed some light on his departure.

"Good luck to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at the Golden Globes. After failing three years in a row to make E! Channel's Best Dressed list, I decided to hand over the reins," Gervais said in a statement to EW. "Let me know if you run out of Scientology gags."

NBC made the announcement Monday along with Dick Clark Productions and the Hollywood Foreign Press, citing Fey and Poehler's "unparalleled comedic timing" as their reasoning behind the decision.

The 2013 Golden Globes will air Jan. 13, 2013, on NBC.

Here's hoping Poehler and Fey earn rave reviews on both the Golden Globe stage and the red carpet.

We'll be sure to put in a good word with the FashPo gang.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
