I think he went too far…

# 3

Nope. He was brilliant. It’s not like he was being mean he was just speaking truth. Suck it up Hollywood, go roll in your piles of cash. I feel no pity for you overpaid, self-satisfied jerks.

# 4

No. He didn’t go too far. Hollywod needs a mirror held to its face.

No. He didn’t go too far. Hollywod needs a mirror held to its face.@Judy:

I could not agree more.

No, he was fine. People should have been prepared. He hosted in a similar way last year too, so people should have known that he was gonna host in a brutally honest way. I heard he’s already pre-signed onto for next year’s broadcast too.

However, I -do- think that Gervais shouldn’t have made the comments about “The Tourist” since it was nominated in categories. The others, Tom Cruise and “Philip Morris” weren’t in the audience, so they were okay.

Stay pressed, HFPA.

Ricky rocks. The closeted scientology boys must be upset. F them.

# 8

Hollywood can dish it out, they better be able to take it!

I was hoping he would go further – whatever that means. He was very funny – I was thoroughly entertained.


“The Tourist” was utter crap! Tom Cruise is a closeted homosexual. Both of these statements are actual facts – he simply made them fun and interesting. ;-)

He didn’t go to far. All those Hollywood stars need to get over themselves and learn to take a joke. He basically said just what everyone already talked about on gossip blogs.

i would have loved it if steve carrell and tina fey finished up the show. i thought they were the funniest part of it.
some of ricky gervais’s jokes made me laugh but the others just made me uncomfortable.


and so are John Travolta and Will Smith. Loved the show, best awards show Ive ever seen.

It was more like a roast but that’s how it oughta be. It’s more fun for the viewers that way.

I didn’t like the gay comment – I thought it was bullying and homophobic.

…the tourist sucked ass. `shiit, the reviews were brutal.
…`and it bombed. not even jolie’s diehard fans went to see it.
…gervais is a douche, but i’m sure he knows it.

There is a lot of nastiness in Hollywood although the ones that we are told that are the ones doing certain things or are guilty are usually the innocent ones…it is a publicists’ game. But what? Some people don’t have publicists? Who would have thunk it? It would be nice if critics would actually see a movie before they run in the ground. It is easy for a “comic” to bash and hate, but really…what does that say about that person? How did their last movie do? Aren’t they seeking attention themselves by doing it?
Sometimes, I wish certain people in Hollywood that tabloids and publicists …and gossip sites …actor wannabes …looking at you, Shuter …would boycott such shows…let’s see how the ratings go. We the viewers hear the roar of the crowd when certain stars arrive and we are not stupid. So Lainey, Shuter, Huvane, E!, and others keep it up…burn your bridges, Ricky. …but look in the mirror…without those coat-tails….and name-dropping and camera spans….ahem, b.o.r.i.n.g.

He didn’t go too far!


I’m actually sad that he’s not hosting the oscars ..

He’s amazing! and funny ..
& I love his accent.

I really liked the tourist – not sure why other people didn’t. :)

No. Ricky was perfect. I think he could’ve gone a little further to be honest.

I’ve seen hobos be more comedic then him!

He went too far with the scientology joke and feeding to the bribe rumours. You don’t bite the hand that feeds you.

Ricky Gervais is not one to pull back, ever seen his cable special? I’m surprised he was hosting again. Several people were swearing when they accepted the award, and DeNiro’s speech. He sounded a little pissed off, joking about how the waiters were going to be deported and how everyone needs to have their papers with them. You could just see the audience going “HUH”? I think the illegal alien jabs bothered the audience more than anything Ricky Gervais said.

He didn’t go too far. Hollywood needs to stop taking themselves so seriously and realize how good their lives are and start laughing at themselves once in a while instead of being so serious all the time
