Ricky Gervais hosted – some say accosted – the Golden Globes this past weekend and is under fire for crossing too many lines. I of course didn’t watch the interminable show, but I did watch the highlights of Ricky’s bits and thought he was what he always is, hysterical.
But he accomplished more than just making me laugh and hurting the flimsy feelings of celebrities. He got the Hollywood Foreign Press to finally admit what we all already knew, that their awards are no less subjective than my list of favorite tv shows (see, I had a point with that one all along). Here is what they said after the show
“Ricky will not be invited back to host the show next year, for sure,” the HFPA member said. “For sure any movie he makes he can forget about getting nominated“
So the votes have already been cast against films Ricky Gervais has yet to make. Anyhow, here’s Ricky. Atheists should make it a point to listen until the very end
