Ricky Gervais Makes Gay Scientologist Joke At Golden Globes
Huffington Post 19th Jan 2011
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/01/1 ... 09786.html (with video. @3m:00s)
RUtube version of the above longer clip: http://rutube.ru/tracks/3992320.html?v= ... a7485fbf15
Youtube clip of just the joke: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_r1F0Whz3tI
Also on Gawker: http://tv.gawker.com/5735192/watch-rick ... -monologue

Quote:
Ricky Gervais promised he wouldn't get invited back to host the Golden Globes, and in his opening monologue Sunday night he did his best to court controversy.

"Also not nominated was 'I Love You Philip Morris,' Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor. Two heterosexual characters pretending to be gay," he said. "So the complete opposite of some famous Scientologists, then."

When the crowd started gasping, Ricky hedged his words.

"Probably," he said. "My lawyers helped me with the wording of that joke. They're not here."

Also during a commercial break (early in the show) there was a scientology commercial about ARC. Shown in the SF bay area. Anyone else see it?

I love Ricky! Have for years. NattyP and I were big fans of the original office as well as the US version.

Oh, Prometheus, I do so miss NattyP...I'm just finishing treatment for breast cancer myself, and crossing my fingers for no recurrence.

Back to Ricky - I think he's a riot, and I am also a big fan of The Office. Just heard on the radio that he was fired from hosting the Golden Globes ever again. oh well...too much for the sensitive actors I suppose.

This was great. Think about the number of people who this went through before it was aired...possibly a writer, director, producer, lawyers....nobody fears the big bad cult!

Piers Morgan (Larry King's replacement) will be interviewing Ricky on the Golden Globes backlash on Thursday night, Jan. 20.

Sandy- I wish you the best of luck with your treatment. And same for NattyP out there.

Re: Gervais

I think there must have been a few scilons in the audience, there were some negative reactions from the back of the audience when he said it. Funny how Gervais can level hits at just about everyone, even the HFP Officials, and they all get the joke, but the scientologists can't "have" it. Whatever happened to "be able to experience anything"?

A few other highlights:

_ Paul Giamatti following a too-long sentence about loving Godiva Chocolates with "and Halle Berry too". I don't think it was intentional though.

_ Robert Downy Jr's invitation to have sex with each of the best actress nominations in order to help their careers, delivered with awesomeness of precision, RDJ style.

_ The look on Helena Bonham Carter's face as Melissa Leo was making her acceptance speech.

John Travolta -- Globes Were 'More Like a Roast'
http://www.tmz.com/2011/01/23/john-trav ... logy-joke/

Quote:
John Travolta -- who was the implied butt of a controversial joke from Ricky Gervais during the Golden Globes -- seemed to acknowledge the situation last night when he told our photog the event was "more like a roast" than an awards show.

[video]

John was all smiles leaving an event at the Hollywood Palladium last night as dozens of fans asked for autographs and congratulated him on his new baby. But he was stone cold silent when we asked him if he had any words for Gervais.

Sometimes saying nothing truly says it all.

It reminds me of what Steve Hassan and Margaret Singer have said about what happens to you when you join a cult: you lose your sense of humor.

In Hollywood, it's all about ratings which translates into bigger revenue. The Golden Globes reaped alot of benefits thanks to Gervais.
