ricky-gervais_crWhen we spoke to Ricky Gervais about a month ago (see interview below or in "Television-Interviews" menu section) when he was promoting his then-upcoming appearance as host of the 68th Annual Golden Globes (held tonight on Sunday, January 16, 2010), he promised that he would take his zingers against celebrities even further than he did last year because he now felt he knew the venue and could up the ante.  After viewing tonight's telecast, we can say that he definitely delivered on that promise, but we're not so sure he achieved the desired result as the audience in attendance seemed to grow increasingly cooler toward him as the night wore on with more than one celebrity presenter taking a few seconds to fire back at Gervais before announcing the nominees.

That being said, the ceremony, which was held, as usual, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, had its share of bizarre celebrity behavior – also as usual.  The speeches of both Robert Downey, Jr. (as he presented the award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical) and Robert DeNiro (as he accepted his Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement in Motion Pictures) were filled with uncomfortable, cringe-inducing moments: Downey made a sexually-drenched speech regarding the leading ladies in the category he was announcing, while DeNiro unwittingly committed a racial faux pas when he tried to make a pointed remark about America's deportation policy by saying that among those deported in addition to members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were "half the waiters."

Beyond all the drama, catty remarks, and good and bad evening gowns, the Golden Globes bear watching because Oscar buzz usually begins to build around any clear winners of the night.  Case in point:  The Social Network has already been riding an increasing wave of good notices, but it was cemented tonight as it won several major categories: Best Original Score, Best Screenplay, Best Director, and the most important one – Best Picture (Drama).



The Social Network: 4 wins [Best Original Score, Best Screenplay, Best Director, Best Motion Picture (Drama)]

Glee: 3 wins [Best Supporting Actor (TV Comedy), Best Supporting Actress (TV Comedy), Best Television Series (Comedy)]

The Fighter: 2 wins [Best Supporting Actor (Motion Picture Drama), Best Supporting Actress (Motion Picture Drama)]

Boardwalk Empire: 2 wins [Best Actor (TV Drama), Best TV Series (Drama)]

The Kids Are All Right: 2 wins [Best Actress (Motion Picture Comedy), Best Motion Picture (Comedy)]


Unlike many other award shows, all the Golden Globe award categories are televised, which makes this show heavy on awards and light on celebrity banter at the podium.  Special numbers or musical performances are non-existent.
