Should Ricky Gervais return as Golden Globes host?

Complete Globes coverage | Gallery: Show highlights | Chat transcript It was challenging to keep track of all the celebrities and institutions that Ricky Gervais insulted during his second year as Golden Globes host. But here's a partial list: Charlie Sheen, Cher, Johnny Depp, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Hurley from "Lost," Heather Mills, Bruce Willis, Scientology, Hugh Hefner, Hugh Hefner's fiancee, Sandra Bullock and Tim Allen. Oh, and God. He tossed that in, too. Gervais was so harsh during certain moments that, when he was absent from the telecast for a while, viewers wondered whether he'd been fired mid-gig. He eventually returned and squashed that conspiracy theory. But the question lingers: Was Gervais cuttingly amusing or just unnecessarily mean? Another important question also remains: Should he be asked back again as host next year?...

Golden Globe Awards 2011: Celebs without a cause

Complete Globes coverage | Gallery: Show highlights | Chat transcript 'Most importantly, to all the amazing kids that watch our show and the kids that our show celebrates, who are constantly told 'no' by the people in their environments, by bullies at school that they can't be who they are or have what they want because of who they are. Well, screw that, kids.' -- Best Supporting TV winner, 'Glee's' Chris Colfer (Getty Images) This year, the Golden Globes -- both the red carpet and the main event -- were virtually cause-free zones. As one chatter, Booboo (no relation to Yogi Bear), wryly noted last night, "So just curious... Darfur is all good now, right? Haven't heard a celebrity go on about that in quite a while, so it must be OK now. Just like the rain forests." "Haiti's all rebuilt, too," added chatter P. Before making a sweeping statement...

Golden Globes 2011: Winners and losers, mismatched shoes and Ricky Gervais's last time as host

"I am sorry, people. Helena Bonham Carter looks like the 80s threw up on her." -- Jen (Reuters) We spent Sunday night chatting with hundreds of you while watching the Golden Globe Awards. If you weren't around for the live show, some of the wittier exchanges have been excerpted below. A full transcript follows at the end of this post. 6 p.m. Jen Chaney: Good evening, all. Welcome to an evening of honoring the best in film and television while making snarky and/or ridiculous comments. Liz and I are both here and we're eager to commiserate with you and answer your questions. In particular, we'll be collecting #globesfail moments throughout the night, both here and on Twitter. If you see an ugly dress, if Ricky Gervais makes a particularly off-kilter joke, if someone wins who shouldn't -- that counts as a #globesfail moment. All right, let's get started. Liz,...

Golden Globes 2011: Predicting the lead acting winners

Natalie Portman, eyeing a potential win on Golden Globe Sunday. (Fox Searchlight) Yesterday I laid out my Golden Globe Award predictions in the screenplay, directing and supporting actor categories. Today we move on to the lead actor and actress categories in both the drama and musical/comedy categories. Will James Franco beat Colin Firth on Sunday night? Does any actress stand a chance against Natalie Portman's performance in "Black Swan"? Can Johnny Depp in "Alice in Wonderland" prevail over ... um ... Johnny Depp in "The Tourist"? Technically I don't have the real answers. But that certainly didn't stop me from making the following educated guesses. And it shouldn't stop you either; polls that allow readers to make their own predictions follow this latest round of prognostication....
