Ricky Gervais, a British comedian who hosted NBC’s 68th Golden Globe Awards 2011 held at Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California last night, pulled no punches at the annual awards show last night. The star studded evening witnessed a who’s who of the entertainment industry gracing the red carpet and at the end of the day, some stars took the much-celebrated Golden Globe trophy back home. Ricky Gervais kept the audience riveted to their seats in what many are calling wonderful gigs, witty comments as well as parodies.
Ricky Gervais took jibes at many notable stars as soon as he took the stage on Sunday evening. Ricky Gervais said that the night of Golden Globes would be full of drinking and partying and at the same time he poked fun at troubled actor Charlie Sheen and said that the actor calls it as his “breakfast”. He even mentioned Church of Scientology and then made fun of the movies that weren’t that great at the box office this year. He said that “I Love You, Phillip Morris” was a movie where two heterosexual people pretended to be gay, for example. He even mentioned Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp starred in the movie “The Tourist,” a movie that many people criticized for getting the number of nominations that it did.
While on one hand, some people might not have liked his gigs, however, Robert De Niro was seen laughing at his jokes. Even Alec Baldwin was seen wiping tears from his eyes through out the ceremony as he was laughing uncontrollably at Ricky Gervais’ jokes. The comedian even poked fun of Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s President Philip Berk, and it seemed that the president did not take Ricky Gervais’ jokes lightly. The host also made fun of Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, to name a few.
