Ricky Gervais, you’ll never work in this town again! Lucky bastard.

He even went after Cher. You do not go after Cher! While last year the audience laughed uproariously, this year you could see some strained, confused faces in the audience.
One of his biggest shots at the elite was “Also not nominated, I Love You Phillip Morris, with Ewan McGregor and Jim Carrey, two heterosexual actors pretending to be gay — the complete opposite of some famous Scientologists then.” Ouch!
You have to love the English. They don’t hold back; think AbFab.

By the way, The Social Network won four prizes, including best drama and director.
Ricky may find himself persona non grata at the after parties tonight. Well done!
