Why Ricky Gervais should host next year's Emmy's

Ricky Gervais wasn't present to accept his Emmy last year and Steve Carell- his American counterpart in the American remake of The Office accepted it on his behalf. Last night, one of the highlights of the ceremony was Gervais' mock outrage that Carell still hasn't handed over his statuette. [Note also Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert- who had given Carell the trophy- barely containing themselves...] Carell's signature stonefaced distress and Gervais unrelenting jabbing make it the funniest- and Office-esque uncomfortable- two minutes in Emmy history. Oh, and there's tickling too... :)
I made you what you are and I get nothing back... Have you even been to see Ghost Town yet? No? I sat through Evan Almighty. Gimme my Emmy.
-Ricky Gervais "ranting" at Steve Carell
