Ricky Gervais's Golden Globes Opening — Hilarious or Too Harsh?

Host Ricky Gervais opened the Golden Globes with a little stand-up routine. As expected, no one was safe from his brutal honesty: he trashed Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp's The Tourist, made cracks about Hugh Hefner, and even poked fun at Lost's Hurley's weight. He certainly didn't hold back, and his opening act included a jab at Scientology. Gervais surely left some audience members bemused and others offended, but what did you think of his opening — hilarious or too harsh?

**That should have read "The bit about taking the head of HFPA TO THE BATHROOM was unnecessary.**

All he did was guarantee that I won't watch the show ever again should he host. He's rude and more off color than funny needs to be. I don't mind "humor" but the bit about taking the head of the HFPA was unnecessary. It's funny when he makes fun of the celebrities, to a certain extent, but most of it was just mean spirited and uncomfortable, and NOT funny in any way.

I don't find him funny, never have. Think he is getting a bit too big for his boots!

yes, he skewered a bunch of celebs, but it was neither hilarious nor harsh, it was just not that funny.

Love it. The elites are being skewered. It's glorious.
