At almost every opportunity during Sunday night’s Golden Globes, Ricky Gervais went out of his way to subvert the atmosphere and people around him. But while the host says he has no regrets, Philip Berk has a different response.
Says the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, who was lambasted as a senile man by Gervais during the ceremony: “He definitely crossed the line.
