“Oh my God. Well. When Ricky Gervais deal fell through and they came to me to play Margret Thatcher. I can’t joke. This is such a thrill. I shiiiiiiit I forgot my glasses. I know I’m going to leave people out. I just want to thank my agent and God (Harvey Weinstein). The Punisher, Old Testament I guess. Everyone in England who let me come and trample all over their history. All the cast and crew who made this for twenty five cents and twenty five minutes. I love you Viola. You’re my girl.”
“Thank you to the Hollywood Poreign Press. I think all of us at one time we all get told no. Your face is too big. Except I thought my eyebrows were independent of my face. I always fought for my instinct to be in movies. Thank you, Merci.”

I take my hat off to Ricky Gervais. He says it like it is and his delivery might be funny, but it also makes you think. Why am I saying off of this? Well the (former?) Golden Globes host has come under fire for his hosting duties at this year’s event. He had a go at a whole host of Hollywood stars like Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp and their movie, The Tourist; “Ashton Kutcher’s Dad, Bruce Willis”, Charlie Sheen; Hugh Hefner and the Hollywood Foreign Press President Philip Berk. Maybe that’s where it all went wrong? Well you know what? I’d rather watch a controversial and funny host on stage as opposed to some boring “Hello and welcome” blah blah, snore, bullshit. Well done Ricky Gervais. If you don’t get the Globes again, then perhaps MTV will hire you to do the VMAs. Gosh our South African Music Awards could do with a host like you. Watch the interview CNN’s Piers Morgan did with his fellow Brit recently to find out his thoughts about the criticism and if you missed all the action, check out the video below of Gervais on stage:
Andrew Garfield of The Social Network and the new Spiderman had a bit of trouble reading the autocue

Eva Longoria introduces the Hollywood Foreign Press president, Phillip Burke, who
Best Actor in a TV Series is presented by Kevin Bacon and Milla Jovovich. The winner is Steve Buscemi for his role in Boardwalk Empire. “I have to put my glasses on and talk pretty fast before that sad music comes on. I have the best class, they’re saying please wrap up already?” Agreed, they’re rude! NBC must provide more airtime.
Boardwalk Empire wins Best Drama. Accepting the award is co-executive producer Terrence Winter “Holy effing crap. We just won a Golden Globe. I could not do this show without the people on this stage. We are just so blessed. We have the most incredible show. There is simply no better place to work as an artist.”
Here’s a promo if you haven’t seen the show like me:
Ricky Gervais is hosting the show again, “It’s going to be a night of partying and heavy drinking or as Charlie Sheen would say breakfast.” He’s having a dig at The Tourist saying the characters aren’t 3D and that he felt bad about that joke because he hasn’t seen it- “Who has” he continues. Ha!
Scarlett Johansson presents the first award Best Supporting actor category and the winner is:
Christian Bale wins the first award for his role in The Fighter. “Thank you so much for this. We love it. Really got to give a shout out to Mark [Wahlberg] who really drove this project”.
LL Cool J and Julie Bowen of Modern Family presented the next award to Katey Sagal of Sons Of Anarchy. She wins the Best Performance by an actress in a television series. This is Katey Sagal’s first win in five nominations, “I’m so shocked and also prepared somewhat.”
The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards has just kicked off with funnyman Ricky Gervais taking a ‘swing’ at fellow Officer Steve Carell. On a serious note he said “It is an honour to be here”. I’ll be live blogging the awards so stay tuned.
