BEST: Ricky Gervais starts the night strong
Gervais was in scorched-earth mode right from the start of his hosting gig. An extended riff on Charlie Sheen's recent travails led into a series of funny tangents about the airbrushed posters for Sex and the City 2 (''Girls, we know how old you are!'') and the bizarre Globe nominations for The Tourist and Burlesque. But Gervais took a step into Hollywood-blacklist territory with a zinger about I Love You Phillip Morris: ''Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor, two heterosexual actors pretending to be gay. So, the complete opposite of some famous Scientologists, then!'' Oh Ricky, you'll never work in this town again, and we love you for it.
