Did Ricky Gervais Fall Flat at Golden Globes?

"The Golden Globes are to the Oscars what Kim Kardashian is to Kate Middleton. Bit louder, bit trashier, bit drunker. And more easily bought. Allegedly."

Low-hanging fruit, but Gervais collected it well.

On to Justin Bieber:

"The only way that he could have impregnated a girl is if he borrowed one of Martha Stewart's turkey basters."

Gervais, sharing the stage with Johnny Depp, had a question: "Have you seen 'The Tourist' yet?"

"Uh … no," Depp, star of the movie, mumbled in response.

And this one:

"There's a pecking order here," Gervais explained. "TV 'round the edge. Movie stars in the middle."

Then he introduced George Clooney, a "rare" person who "managed to move all the way from the back, when he was on 'ER,' to right down the front."

The ol' seven-second delay came in handy when Gervais, introducing Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek, said he couldn't "understand a f******g word they say."

As for Colin Firth:

"What you don't know about him is, is he's very racist. Very. I mean, really, nasty stuff. Also, I've seen him punch a little blind kitten. Please welcome the evil Colin Firth."

And with that, out came Firth.
