Ricky Gervais plans to target "the weak and the feeble" at the Golden Globe awards.

The British comedian is set to front the ceremony - which takes place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California on January 16 - for the second time and jokingly claimed he doesn't want to mock anyone during the show who will want retribution.

He said: "I only go for the weak and the feeble. I'm not going to have a go at Russell Crowe or Mickey Rourke. Mickey Rooney maybe. Betty White, I'm not scared of her. You've gotta to choose your targets wisely."

Ricky, 49, also admitted he plans to poke fun at Charlie Sheen - who has recently hit the headlines for wild partying with porn stars - and Mel Gibson, whose angry rants were exposed in a series of leaked voicemail messages to former lover Oksana Grigorieva last year.

Ricky told US TV talk show host Ellen DeGeneres: "Well, Charlie Sheen has obviously put his head above the parapet. Like last year, Mel Gibson was a gift from the comedy god. So yeah, that'd be two good people out of the audience - Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen.

"I mean, these are people that really have something to go after."
