Some people are still going on about how offensive Ricky Gervais was while hosting the Golden Globes.  I was finally able to watch some clips from the show, and I thought Gervais was brilliant.  Abrasive, but brilliant.  And he warned them that he was going to up the ante from last year, so they should have listened to him.

I think one of the problems is that actors are so used to being praised that they lose perspective about themselves.  If you can’t laugh at yourself, life can be long and dreary.

Not everyone was offended.  In fact, one of my favorite actors showed he had a sense of humor by making a joke about the “tone” of the show.
