    Default Ricky Gervais at the Golden Globes

    The jokes weren't necessarily that funny, but I can't say I didn't enjoy seeing him lay into them. I'm assuming they decided to have him back as some form of "controlled opposition", allowing themselves to be humiliated for a few hours in an effort to placate the growing backlash.

    Can't really stand Gervais most of the time. He loves to think he's some sort of genius rebel.

    Still, it is satisfying to see this sort of thing, especially the anti-Apple/Disney/Amazon rhetoric. Even if it's a hollow charade.

    That seems to be the case for a lot of comedians. It comes with the territory.

    it's all about TV ratings. at the end of the day, the Golden Globes doesn't really give a shit what a host says, as long as the host draws viewers. obviously there are some limits, they'd probably pull the plug on him mid-show if he said the GGs were the worst awards ever and judges were all ratfuckers or something, but aside from that it's all about TV ratings and related ad revenue.

    Didn't he call the judging committee racists?

    "Many talented people of color were snubbed in major categories. Unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do about that. Hollywood Foreign press are all very racist. Fifth time."
