Hollywood’s man of the hour – became persona non grata at the Golden Globe Awards. Ricky Gervais used his hosting gig to blast tinsel town’s biggest names – and bloated egos. Here’s a clip of the funny man’s most talked about zinger – courtesy of NBC.
GERVAIS: “Also not nominated – I Love You Phillip Morris, starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor—two heterosexual actors pretending to be gay. So the complete opposite of some famous scientologists. (Crowd reacts)”
GERVAIS: “My lawyers helped me with the wording of that joke.”
Gervais said he was going for the gusto. Apparently that meant going for the jugular. Reviews are mixed, with the LA Times saying….
“The opposite of dull and deferential is not snotty and abusive.”
But New York Magazine defends, with…
“How much more boring would the Golden Globes have been without Gervais? So, so much more boring!”
Right now Ricky’s probably hoping – there really is no such thing as bad publicity. Or was this all planned? MSNBC takes a look.
GEIST: “He promised he was going to hold nothing back – going after people in the room. He lived up to it. It was awkward at times. Not a lot of laughter. Some cringing. Maybe people not allowed to laugh because of his targets – many of them their friends sitting at nearby tables.”
Not all of Hollywood’s incensed at the roasting. Regis and Kelly got a kick out of Ricky’s wicked humor.
PHILBIN: “He’s very, very funny, but I thought – I was hanging onto my chair.”
RIPA: “I said, it’s the first time I’ve watched an awards show at home and I had to excuse myself to put deodorant on. I was sweating! (That nervous, huh?) The sweat was just pouring out of me!”
And some stars even fought back – at the microphone. CNN has that – and a rumor of Gervais getting the boot….mid-show.
GERVAIS: “Many of you in this room probably know him best from such facilities as The Betty Ford Clinic and Los Angeles County Jail. Please welcome Robert Downey, Jr.”
DOWNEY: “Aside from the fact that it’s been hugely mean spirited and with mildly sinister undertones, I’d say the vibe of the show is pretty good so far, wouldn’t you?”
HAMMER: “When Ricky was off camera for awhile during the show – it felt like an hour or more – rumors started flying on Twitter that he’d actually been fired…yanked from the show in the middle of it. He wasn’t.”
Turns out – the Hollywood Foreign Press really was upset. PopEater says – the Globe’s organizers won’t be inviting the Brit back.
"For sure any movie he makes he can forget about getting nominated. He humiliated the organization last night and went too far with several celebrities whose representatives have already called to complain."
Several reps for offended celebs have already contacted the Hollywood Foreign Press. So, what’s your take? Did they get what they paid for? Or did Gervais take it too far?

Watch Ricky Gervais opening to The Golden Globes. Despite expectations that he would out-do his insult-ridden monologue from last year, this year's opening was a fairly lame affair. There were many hurt feeling after last year and it took some special diplomacy to get him to return:
HFPA President Takla-O'Reilly helped work through the sour feelings of some of the 83 members of her organization over last year's Gervais performance. She flew to Paris last summer to meet the comedian (who co-created the British original version of television's "The Office") and helped pave the way for his return to the Globes.
Angelina Jolie, Kate Beckinsale, and Jessica Biel were just a few of the stars who chose a lighter shade for their walk down the red carpet at the 2012 Golden Globes.
Christopher Plummer was the first winner at this year's Golden Globe Awards, receiving the best supporting actor trophy for his work in Beginners. On stage Christopher apologized to his fellow nominees, which he also joked about when he went backstage to the press room. Here's what he had to say:
On all the nice things being said about him: "Usually no nice things are said about me at all, so it’s a great relief."
On the antigay protests outside the awards: "Gay characters are human beings. we’re all exactly the same. That's the reason I played it the way I did, not as a caricature. They're a part of our society since the Egyptians, the Greeks — it's part of the human condition. I know there is a lot of antigay sentiment in our society at the moment and I abhor it."
On apologizing to his fellow nominees: "That was humor. I always like to salute my competitors since no one is better than the other, it just happens that someone has to win. If it's me, that's wonderful, but I must congratulate all of them because they are wonderful."
On what about this role in particular affected him: "This role particularly affected me because it was such an understated human kind of creature that I hadn’t played for a long time. It's someone's actual father, the director's real father, so I was really apprehensive about it at the beginning. Michael told me to be myself which I did, which is also my father."
Michael Fassbender comments on George Clooney's jokes about his privates, and Glenn Close describes how her Golden Globe evening went.
Today's stories include Martin Luther King Jr, the Golden Globes, and capsized cruise ships.
It was a typically star-studded evening at the 2012 Golden Globes where a clutch of Hollywood's most celebrated talents received the evening's golden statues.
