    Link: Ricky Gervais` Golden Globes Opening Monologue - Here it is, the monologue that the sensitive types in Hollywood are wringing their hands over. Too harsh, I-A-B?

    I missed it but watched the rest, it doesn`t seem bad at all. The audience laughed way more in this video than they did the rest of the night lol, everything else he said seemed rushed and had absolutely no response from the audience. Definitely awkward. Personally I think he does some great stand up :) but I definitely think it was awkward last night

    Meh. He thinks he`s funnier than he actually is. The Office was good, but that`s the only character he has. Everything else he`s tried to act in was just David Brent again.

    Ricky was awesome; the only reason to actually watch the golden globes.

    "Hollywood`s favorite award show because they`re allowed to drink throughout the entire ceremony, because without that, it would be f*cking insufferable." - Ricky Gervais

    I thought he was pretty funny. If those actors/actresses couldn`t take his jokes, they`re in the wrong business. Magazines and crappy news stand prints can (and will) do a lot worse.

    This was one of those very rare moments when I actually found Ricky Gervais funny, although, it was partly the audience`s huge reaction to some of the jokes.

    Come on, just because they`re not obvious, tame and lame like most awards show jokes, doesn`t mean it`s all really offensive, does it? When he was ripping on The Tourist, Johnny Depp clearly laughed along with it, so no-one was really offended. Except maybe Cher, but who cares about that plastic beast?

    They should just be glad they didn`t hire Stephen Colbert. I would say what he said during the Press Dinner with Bush was far more "roasty" than anything I heard here.

    I will say that the monologue here doesn`t really do credit to the full effect. The Bruce Willis joke, not something I would do to a guy who could rip me apart.

    But I believe the best bit was his passive aggressive attack on Steve Carrell for leaving The Office, which sadly we missed here.

    I can`t cope.

    "Rickey" Gervais on the caption.

    "Ricky" Gervais everywhere else on the planet.

    ...he reminds me of that a$$hole at the wedding who`s had too much to drink when he`s asked to make his toast (like Steve Buscemi in The Wedding Singer...ironically enough). Sure, what he`s saying is "true" and "cutting" and "scathing" and so on...but no one wants to hear about the bride blowing the busboy 2 years ago at some staff Christmas party.

    Save it for your own gig...not when you`re emceeing someone else`s.

    I thought it was funny, but he need to just come out and say the jokes. He sounded like he was trying to test the waters to make sure no one got too badly offended, but it would have gone much more smoothly if he had just gone with it. I think people probably would have been less offended that way, as well.

    I thought it was funny. I don`t see what the harm is just because he made a couple of jokes. People need to get the pole out of there ass and just get over it. To be honest what he said about Charlie Sheen was kind of true anyway.

    I love Ricky. What an acidic sense of humour. Honestly, the stars in his speech could use a little more criticism along that line.

    "If your butt hurt, buy a donut pillow"

    What the hell does this mean and where did you even...
    I find myself torn between feelings of confusion, slight displeasure and intense intrigue. Can you tell me more about these donut pillows you speak of?

    I loved Depp`s expression at 1:38. You could tell he can take a joke.

    I was shocked that they had such a hilarious and slightly vulgar man open for the Golden Globes. @Moosh and the donut pillow is just a round toob shaped seat filled with bean-bag-chair foam balls and feels great to sit on after a long days work. I`m sory to say its not acctualy a donut...
