Jon Stewart to Ricky Gervais on the Golden Globes: '[You] hurt my self-esteem'

Ricky Gervais didn’t bring it up, but two minutes into his chat with Jon Stewart last night, he found himself again discussing his controversial hosting performance at this year’s Golden Globes. Stewart, an awards show vet himself, felt the Brit owed him an apology: “Here’s what you have to apologize about for the Golden Globes: Making people like me, who have also hosted these events, feel inadequate by being that funny. By going out there and being hilarious.”

Gervais seemed unsure if there was a “but… ” coming, to be followed by some back-handed compliment, but Stewart was sincere in his admiration and the crowd approved. Gervais, who was on the show pimping his HBO special, Talking Funny, displayed some weariness from the exhaustive criticism: “This is what I think I should apologize for about the Golden Globes: F— all!”

From there, the two cracked each other up, poking fun at the uptight stuffed shirts who just didn’t get his sense of humor. Take a look at the extended, uncensored clips. READ FULL STORY

Just for kicks, Ricky Gervais pens an Oscars monologue for Anne Hathaway and James Franco

Gervais-at-Golden-GlobesImage Credit: Paul Drinkwater/NBCHey, remember how Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globes a couple times? Well, that makes him something of an awards show expert — even if his latest outing wasn’t exactly well-received by everyone. The Office creator flexed his dormant hosting muscle on his blog this week, where he posted a monologue that Academy Awards hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway can feel free to use “in case they have a few minutes to fill.” The fake opener is predictably colorful. Here’s an excerpt: READ FULL STORY

Sorry Bunny, there's no 'Big Lebowski' sequel

Tara Reid is a tease. Two weeks ago, she told press at Charmaine Blakes’ 1st Annual Golden Globe Viewing Party to Help Eliminate Child Trafficking that she’d be shooting The Big Lebowski 2 — this year. Holy Little Lebowski Urban Achievers! A Big Lebowski sequel! I’d sever my own toe for another trip to Dude-land. But was Bunny simply being fatuous? According to a spokesperson for the Coen brothers, who would probably know such things, there is no Big Lebowski 2 in the works. Reid’s rep writes to EW, “She heard Jeff Bridges say that he wanted to make Big Lebowski 2 and have all the original cast members in it, so she may have misspoke, thinking that included her based on what Jeff said.” Sheesh, this is the kind of bongled conclusion that will get you tangled with a bunch of nihilists.

Natalie Portman's laugh is the new Brendan Fraser clap

Even College Humor must think so, since they ended this montage of Natalie Portman’s hypnotic/annoying/adorable laugh during her Golden Globes acceptance speech with our favorite GIF from last year’s Globes.

Anyone else think Fraser should be the Jack Nicholson of the Globes? READ FULL STORY

Did Ricky Gervais go too far at the Golden Globes?

golden-globes-gervaisHe trashed The Tourist right in front of Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. He introduced Bruce Willis as “Ashton Kutcher’s dad.” He dissed Charlie Sheen, Steve Carell, Cher, the cast of Sex and the City 2, Robert Downey Jr., and…well, just about everyone else within earshot. In his second year as the host of the Golden Globes, Ricky Gervais more than lived up to his reputation as the go-to guy for off-color Hollywood humor. (Check out a full rundown of Gervais’ rudest jokes here.) EW‘s own Ken Tucker is a fan, saying that Gervais brought “the sort of funny rudeness and effrontery… that make an awards show such as the Golden Globes engaging to watch.” But judging by the equal amounts of groans and giggles in the audience, it’s clear that some thought he stepped over the line of good taste.

So let’s get a show of hands from you, PopWatchers: Did Gervais make you laugh or cringe? Vote in our poll now, and check back later today for the results!

Ricky Gervais says he will riff on Charlie Sheen during the Golden Globes monologue. Oh, you can do better than that.

On the Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday, Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais revealed his game plan for Sunday’s big show: attack the wounded. “I only go for the weak or the feeble. I’m not going to go for Russell Crowe or Mickey Rourke. Mickey Rooney, maybe! Betty White — I’m not scared of her,” the Brit told DeGeneres. Heads up, Charlie Sheen. (See the video below.)

Gwen Stefani strikes a pose for L'Oreal Paris

Gwen Stefani is following in the paths of Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria, and Beyoncé Knowles as a cover girl for L’Oréal Paris. People reported that the pop star had signed a deal with the cosmetic giant, and confirmed that she’ll initially be hawking Le Rouge lip color (which we’ll have to take on faith, based on this black-and-white photo). Her first L’Oréal television commercial will debut this weekend, during the Golden Globe Award show.

Did you consider Stefani a lipstick glamour-girl? Does her cred actually enhance the L’Oreal brand?

Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais on awards shows, his Christmas wishes, and his HBO cartoon

Setting the world-record for number of downloads and launching an Emmy-winning HBO cartoon version? Just the cream. The Golden Globe host called EW recently to plug the animated adaptation’s Jan. 4 DVD release and ended up giving us the what’s what on holiday TV, awards ceremonies, his Christmas-inspired 20-pound weight loss, the show’s second season (premiering Jan. 14 on HBO), and his next series.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY:  Now that you’re a seasoned awards presenter, do you have any advice for Oscar hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway?
 They’re braver then me. The Oscars you’ve got to rehearse. When they said, “Will you host the Globes?” I said, “can I just turn up and do my own thing and not have a lot of cues?” And they went “yep.” And I went “fine.” So that’s my kind of job. For the Oscars, I’d have to learn a song and dance routine — way too much trouble.

Golden Globe nominees: Read their reactions here!

Nominations for the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards were announced this morning. You’ve heard our thoughts on the surprises, snubs, and sure things, but what about the nominees themselves? Reactions are coming in; here’s what some of this year’s nominated class has to say:

Mila Kunis, nominated for Best Supporting Actress for Black Swan: “I don’t think it’s sunk in yet … [Darren Aronofsky] is truly one of the greatest directors I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. [The movie] was truly made from tears and love and for all the right reasons … [To celebrate], I’m taking my dogs to the vet. It’s pretty exciting, right? They’ll get their nails clipped, they’ll get a bath and won’t be stinky. It’s a good day for the household.”

Mark Wahlberg, executive producer of Boardwalk Empire (nominated for Best TV Drama), nominated for Best Actor for The Fighter:  “I’m kind of under the weather. I’ve been so in the world of The Fighter that I hadn’t thought too much about Boardwalk Empire. But it was certainly a nice wake-up call to get, even though it woke up our 11-month-old daughter, whose crib is right beside our bed.”

David O. Russell, nominated for Best Director for The Fighter: “We had a screening in New York last night hosted by Robert De Niro — which just meant the world to us, because he liked the film so much — and then this morning I was awoken by a banging on the hotel room door. It’s just so great. It’s just so fantastic to be recognized in a year with such good movies. You just want to savor the moment, you know? Take it in and appreciate it because you never know when you’ll be back here again. We’re flying back to L.A. now for another screening and then I’m sure I’ll have drinks with some friends.”

Geoffrey Rush, nominated for Best Supporting Actor for The King’s Speech: “I went out and had my late-night supper as I’m doing a play here [Diary of a Madmen] in Sydney and then experienced the curious phenomena of not being able to connect to the Internet. I was in a complete technological funk — I couldn’t get onto the wifi at my hotel, I couldn’t find a TV channel that was broadcasting the announcements, so my 15-year-old son in Melbourne was holding his phone to the television there to get the information. [The nomination news] was a kind of dad-and-son thing, which is really quite nice. It’s 1:45 a.m. And I should be out clubbing but I have to get to sleep now as I have a matinee tomorrow … We just took [The King's Speech] from square one and tried to make it as vivid and as lively and as intriguing as we possibly could and that seems to be radiating out to the office, which is great.” READ FULL STORY
