Ricky Gervais is a funny man. He's not necessarily a nice one. If you've ever seen any of his comedy, you wouldn't expect him to play nice. He skewers, deflates and lampoons. He makes awkward situations. Certainly there were others who reveled in the awkward pause before him, but much of today's awkward humor stems from him.
His Golden Globes performance was great.
If there is any group of people in the world that deserves some ribbing, it's movie stars. Well, politicians and athletes as well. The bigger the egos, the more they need to be mocked. When you get paid not only unseemly quantities of money, but also unseemly quantities of praise and attention, you need to get torn up every now and again.
Keep it up Ricky. I'm with Coco, and I'm with Gervais.
