68th Annual Golden Globes Results

Say what you will about the Hollywood Foreign Press Association or the legitimacy of the Golden Globes themselves, last night’s show wasn’t boring.

In his second year as the host of the Golden Globes, Ricky Gervais didn’t hold back his thoughts on Hollywood’s stars and producers, many of whom watched him live at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

On Charlie Sheen:

"It’s going to be a night of partying and heavy drinking — or, as Charlie Sheen calls it, ‘breakfast.’ Wow, so let’s get this straight, so what he did was, he picked up a porn star, paid her to have dinner with him, introduced her to his ex-wife — as you do — went to a hotel, got drunk, got naked, trashed the place while she was locked in a cupboard, and that was a Monday. What does he do New Year’s Eve?"

On "The Tourist" and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association:

"It was a big year for 3D movies. ‘Toy Story,’ ‘Despicable Me,’ ‘Tron.’ It seemed like everything this year was three-dimensional. Except the characters in ‘The Tourist.’ I already feel bad about that joke. I tell you what, I’m jumping on the bandwagon, because I haven’t even seen ‘The Tourist.’ Who has? But it must be good because it’s nominated, so shut up, OK? And I’d like to crush this ridiculous rumor that the only reason ‘The Tourist’ was nominated was so that the foreign press of could hang out with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. That was not the only reason; they also accepted bribes."

On "Lost":

"One of the biggest TV events of the year was the finale of ‘Lost.’ It was quite a complicated finale, and I’m not sure I understood it all. From what I can make out, the fat one ate them all."

When Gervais introduced Robert Downey Jr. with the line  "But many of you in this room probably know him best from such facilities as the Betty Ford Clinic and Los Angeles County Jail;" Downey Jr. shot back "Aside from the fact that it’s been hugely mean-spirited with mildly sinister undertones, I’d say the vibe of the show has been pretty good so far, wouldn’t you?"

Tom Hanks and Tim Allen also voiced their disapproval of Gervais’ antics during the show. "We recall when Ricky Gervais was a slightly chubby but very kind comedian," said Hanks, before Allen continued: "Neither of which he is now."
 
However, Gervais’ performance may have helped the ratings, which rose to 17 million viewers this year.

In TV, "Glee" and "Boardwalk Empire" took home the awards for best comedy and best drama, respectively. Steve Buscemi ("Boardwalk Empire") and Katey Sagal ("Sons of Anarchy") won for best actor and actress in a drama while Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") and Laura Linney ("The Big C") took home the honors in comedy.

For film, "The Social Network" came away with four awards for best director, best adapted screenplay, best original and best drama. Oscar frontrunner Natalie Portman won for her performance in "The Black Swan" with Colin Firth was named the best actor in a drama for his role in "The King’s Speech."
