Gervais habitually stirs up conversation with his pull-no-punches humor at the industry's expense. Gervais's return to the show is driving some serious Twitter traffic to the Globes. "Excitement for Gervais" ranked just behind "General Excitement" for the Globes (28%) and well ahead of the next largest topic, "Support for Celebrity Nominee" (10%).
The results were taken from more than 7,000 Twitter messages posted from Jan. 10-11. Gervais ranked again on the list with 8% of the Twitter conversations about "Ricky Gervais' Humor." There were no other specific nominees or celebrities that made NM Incite's list.
