Last night Ricky Gervais welcomed a star studded audience to the 68th Golden Globe. The British comedian said the awards was "a night of heavy drinking and partying or as Charlie Sheen calls it, breakfast." Ricky went on to pick on Charlie mentioning that he recently picked up a stripper and then described the Two and A Half Men's notorious NYC plaza fit.
After an uncomfortable bashing of Sheen, the British funnyman mercilessly trashed the nomination of The Tourist starring Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp, despite critical pans.
"Who knows? I haven't seen it," Gervais admitted. "There's this ridiculous rumor going around that the only reason The Tourist was nominated was so that the Hollywood Foreign Press could hang out with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. That's rubbish. they also accepted bribes."
The cameras caught Depp making a sour face in the audience. Others around Depp seemed annoyed as well.
As if trashing Charlie Sheen, Angelina, Johnny Depp wasn't enough, Ricky Gervais mocked the cast of the un-nominated Sex and the City 2. "Girls, we know how old you are! I saw one of you on an episode of Bonanza."
When discussing the film Gervais said "two heterosexual actors pretending to be gay--which is the exact opposite of some famous Scientologists," he said as the crowd booed, presumably referencing Tom Cruise and John Travolta. "Probably! My lawyers helped me with the wording of that joke." Then he said that his lawyers weren't there.

Gervais also made some cruel references to Hugh Hefner and the fact he was engaged to marry a much younger women. Ricky made a reference to Hugh's fiancee not having to look at it, in reference to sleeping with the Playboy founder.
Although some people in the audience laughed at the opening dialogue, many people in the audience appeared very uncomfortable and made faces at the camera. Throughout the night some of the celebs made snarly comments about Ricky. So did the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press who let Ricky know he wouldn't be helping him with any of his future film projects.
Did Ricky go too far with his cutting comments last night? Was he trying to piss everyone off? Only Ricky and Hollywood really knows for sure.
