Golden Globes 2012

The Golden Globes was on last night, and Ricky Gervais hosted the show for the third time. Ever since he hosted the ratings of the show has gone up. Ricky said, “the biggest British comedian was hosting the second-biggest awards show on the third-biggest network [NBC] “… oh, wait, its fourth,” He then compared the Golden Globes to Oscars he said “what Kim Kardashian is to Kate Middleton — louder, trashier, drunker and more easily bought.”

Upon following the rules on the Golden Globes and his satire, he read aloud the rules he was to follow — no profanity, no nudity, no smut or innuendo, no Mel Gibson jokes — which followed a quip about Jodie Foster’s “Beaver” (a film in which Gibson starred), which Foster seemed to take with good grace.

Then he vanished and reappearing only occasionally to introduce presenters. There was one awkward but funny moment. When Ricky Gervais introduce Seth Rogen with his co-presenter Kate Beckinsale Seth, who was standing beside her and mention about his enormous erection. A huge laugh, Kate(mildly horrified  at the time) laugh too. Seth’s smile in embarrassing.

Real-life spouses William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman sang a surprisingly charming song to introduce nominees for supporting actress in a TV series/mini-series   (won by “American Horror Story’s” Jessica Lange), and Rob Lowe covered nicely for a malfunctioning teleprompter, asking co-presenter Julianne Moore “When was the last time you did a cold reading in front of Steven Spielberg?”

When Gervais was introducing Madonna for presenting, he introduced her as “Just like a virgin” then erupted with a theatrical cough. Madonna fired back: “If I’m still just like a virgin, Ricky, then why don’t you come over here and do something about it?” She paused. “I haven’t kissed a girl in a few years. …”A camera caught him dashing across the stage – streaking? He was fully clothed.

Ricky Gervais he will come back next year. His humor is off the chart and by the way, if you haven’t seen his TV show on the science channel called An Idiot Abroad, it’s hysterical watch.
