Golden Globe Awards Honor Glee, The Social Network, Call Out Gay Scientologists

by at . Comments

Ricky Gervais kicked off the 2011 Golden Globe Awards by staying true to his vow to be more subversive than he was a year ago. Just ask Tom Cruise and John Travolta, at whom the comedian aimed this opening joke:

"Also not nominated was I Love You Philip Morris, Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor. Two heterosexual characters pretending to be gay. So the complete opposite of some famous Scientologists, then... Probably. My lawyers helped me with the wording of that joke. They're not here."

And with that... the show was off! Watch Gervais' intro here, following by a list of the event's major winners:

Scientologists are asking to be made fun of.

What's the fuss about Ricky Gervais's comments? After all, the stars themselves know that there's not much to this "career" of theirs. I mean , how hard is it to pull an acting equivalent to that in "old dogs" and get millions of dollars. Now if you want to talk about " acting", Halle Berry's Monster's ball would be commendable. But that would be giving an oscar to every porn actress. So, unlax. It's time to give back to the people who made them millionaires and by allowing themselves to be the butt of jokes.
