He is terrible. He is unfunny, smug and extremely annoying. I phased out when he was talking most of the time.

He was wonderfully biting and sharp, it's a tad ironic if you think about the negative reaction he got, he's doing exactly the same as what people such as Letterman and Leno do and applauded for (Maybe Leno not so much), except he does it to the faces of those he's joking about.

Thank God for Ricky Gervais. I don't think I could take another awards show of millionaires kissing each others asses.

Ricky was awesome.
Someone has to cut through to those pampered actor fucks and treat them like real people rather than kept poodles with emotions like candy-glass.
Welcome to reality fuckers, not everyone is here to suck your ass.
Seems its only cool to be that funny if your making a joke of a jew hater! But pick on Jonny Depp, oohhh oggy boogie! Big bad ricky!!! lol
If you don't have people like Ricky doing his thing you're left with the greatest actor of our generation stummbling out

If you don't have people like Ricky doing his thing you're left with the greatest actor of our generation stummbling out akward, scripted jokes to a bored audience obligated to chuckle. DeNiro's speech was cring worthy. Why script it for him, let him speak for himself FFS.
More Ricky.

He was hilarious. He deserves another shot but I doubt he will get it. At least he went out with a bang!

Some of you, really?! Kinda too mean?! 89 votes so far for " the jokes were way too mean and nasty"?! REALLY? This is what is truely said about America these days. Can't anything about anyone or anything without someone getting their panties all in a bunch. Sensitive America is what we have become. Get a grip and grow a set!

Scientology jokes were great but some of his jokes were kinda too mean. Ricky was funny as a host though.

Awards shows are just a big circle jerk of self-absorbed actors and execs congratulating themselves so if they can't take a joke, too bad...they can go cry into their insanely huge paychecks...

I hope he goes on The Office, even if only for a few episodes. It would be perfect.

Ricky was great

Loved the jokes about the Scientologists and Hugh Hefner. He should team up with Armond White next year - it'll be the show to end all awards shows

Funny but mean

The show kept me on my toes, I'll give it that much. Gervais as host was alright he kept everything loose and took as well as he gave.

Like I said in the other article, Gervais was great. He was simply saying what everyone in the room was thinking, but were too full of themselves to admit. I don't know if Hanks and Allen's joke was entirely accurate, though; Gervais and Merchant weren't exactly casting Hollywood and celebrity worship in an entirely favourable light when they did "Extras."

That "famous scientologist" joke made me laugh really hard. He was mean, but mean is funny.

However....

As much as I love Gervais, I think Downey Jr. needs to host the Oscars. That man is fucking hysterical every time he presents anything.

Daring and edgy...

Absolutely loved it. Many people say he was mean-spirited but people really need to lighten up and take a joke.

His timing and one-liners were perfectly timed and I laughed my ass off and my jaw dropped quite a few times.

The Globes needed its edge back and Ricky delivered!

Annoying as Hell.

Stop me if you've heard this one. What's funny about Ricky Gervais? That he USED to be!

Okay, but seriously, I'll go with what Tom Hanks and Tim Allen said: "Like many of you, we recall back when Ricky Gervais was a slightly chubby but very kind comedian." "Neither of which he is now."

Gervais made this over indulgent load of crap almost worth watching. He needs to do it again.

Genius!

I thought he did a fantastic job last night. Love the fact that he is honest and straight forward in his jokes and his approach. It's just what the Golden Globes need and I hope he comes back next year, but probably won't because alot of people probably think he was more mean than funny. The man is funny and knows how to deliver. I mean the introduction he gave to Bruce Willis as Ashton Kutcher's dad was classic.
