The Golden Globes host tonight, Ricky Gevais was raw and insulting, which I found refreshing. He did not hold back, said what was on his mind, and was not uptight like us American’s. The Brit’s have a certain flair for comedy and are not worried, about being politically correct. My wish is that someday, I am able to do the same. I would love to say everything that is on my mind, ALL of the time. But I will probably have to wait until I’m 80 years old, and don’t give a darn (would love to say something else) what other’s say, so there is still a long time to go!
His monologue included stabs at, I believe Tom Cruise, was he saying he is gay? He introduced Bruce Willis, as Ashton Kutchen’s father? OMG! He criticized the movie, The Tourist, right in front of the stars, Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp! Basically saying it sucked! He said he was worse off, because he had to help wipe up Golden Globe President, in the bathroom, and put in his teeth! He pretty much called Robert Downey, Jr. a reject, known for his Betty Ford stints (o.k. close). It was great; as he walked out each time, everyone basically held their breath, in anticipation of what may come out of his mouth.
To all the BIG winner’s; The Social Network (Top Honors-Motion Picture of the Year), Glee, Boardwalk Empire, The Fighter, Robert De Niro, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, and many more…Congrats!
Overall I enjoyed the show. My only critique, is the winner’s need to shorten their acceptance speeches, I get tired of hearing them get cut off!
