Ricky Gervais Kicks Up A Storm at The Golden Globes

British actors and films picked up a few awards at the Golden Globes yesterday, but, British comedian, Ricky Gervais, who compered the show for the second (and undoubtedly last) time, took all the press.

While the photographers were lining up outside the “after parties” for shots of the great and the glorious celebs and the journalists were preparing questions for the celebrity winners and losers from the awards show, Ricky Gervais was ensuring that all their snaps and soundbites would be relegated to page two of any press for the 2011 Golden Globes. Gervais is a satirist and Hollywood found out that he seems to be a satirist that doesn’t care. Put one of these on a live show and there are always going to be issues.

Perhaps best summing up Gervais’s styl for the evening was his gag aimed directly at Hollywood’s biggest hitters on their lacklustre movie, The Tourist.

It was a big year for 3-D movies… seems like everything this year was three-dimensional. Except the characters in The Tourist… it must be good, because it’s nominated. So shut up.

A triple-whammy that hits two of the biggest Hollywood stars, a megaflop of a movie and the unusual nominating practices of the Hollywood Foreign Press.

As for the awards, our favourite Glee took a shed-load, so, someone somewhere got something right.

As for the British contingent, COLIN FIRTH won best actor in a drama for The King’s Speech, and CHRISTIAN BALE was best supporting actor for The Fighter. NATALIE PORTMAN won best actress in a drama for Black Swan.

Take a Butchers at Lady Gaga’s RARE designer dress, worn to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards

Lady GaGa’s latest off the shoulder dress is literally that, off the shoulder of a recently slaughtered cow!

Complete with matching hat and purse, Lady GaGa knows that she is the one that everyone will be talking about for days, weeks, even years to come.

But what is the reason behind it? Are we treating her like a piece of meat? Apparently not, as she explained to American chat show host Ellen DeGeneres at an after show “meat up”

“I mean no disrespect to anyone who is vegetarian or vegan. As you know, I’m the most judgement free human being on earth,” Gaga said in an interview on DeGeneres’ chat show. Holding a copy of Vogue on the cover of which she is emblazoned wearing a beef bikini, she told the audience: “I am not a piece of meat.”

The policy means gay people can serve in the armed forces so long as they don’t disclose their sexual orientation.

It looks to me that a dress made of meat has very little relationship to an army’s policy on homosexuality. I think she wanted to get her picture in the news, and, she did it.

I’ve got no beef with Lady GaGa if she wants to wear a meat dress! It’s not that many steps removed from wearing a leather outfit. Just don’t talk tripe about why you’re wearing it.

One thing that has been lost in all of this. When reading all the blog posts and news articles about Lady GaGa’s night, I struggled to find one that listed the awards she had won, but, perhaps when you’re as cutting edge as this, turning up and being seen is more important than winning.

For those of you still interested in the results, Lady Gaga slaughtered the competition to pick up 8 awards:

  • Video Of The Year – Bad Romance
  • Best Pop Video – Bad Romance
  • Best Female Video – Bad Romance
  • Best Collaboration – Lady Gaga and Beyoncé
  • Best Dance Music Video – Bad Romance
  • Best Choreography – Bad Romance
  • Best Direction – Bad Romance
  • Best Editing – Bad Romance
