I thought the show was horribly boring. Not much else to say. Penis comments totally uncalled for. The only thing I liked was seeing Angelina and Brad together. Otherwise I could have skipped the thing. I'm looking forward to the BAFTAS coming up soon. That award show will be totally different in every way.

damned if you do,damned if you don't. Ryan obviously has a bias vs Gervais.She doesn't like him & doesn't think he's funny.I do and I thought he was.The most interesting thing to me as I watched,was how unwilling to kick back and have fun many of the audience members were.Good lord, lighten up. Jody Foster's reaction to Gervais's joke re her "Beaver" was classy & real.She threw her head back & laughed.God,Hollywood takes itself seriously.Gervais isn't stupid.He knew exactly what he was doing by pulling back.Why waste your breath trying to have a go at over paid over entitled narcissists like Madonna.

Except for finding out who won, a boring show. Weird camera pans...Who was directing? The penis and poop jokes got old fast. Gervais was having an off-night, and what was with his coming out with a different drink in hand each time all about? The point? His comment about Maddona's virginity was tired and stale (as well as her equally inane rejoinder). Best parts: all the clips from "The Artist," the smart and happy dog at the end, and the retrospective of Morgan Freeman's films and his acceptance speech. Also, the clever "Modern Family" acceptance and the funny and witty song Huffman and Macy sang. I also liked how Michelle Williams accepted her award and also Octavia Spencer (loved the quote she had).

That so much time, thought, and resource is spent on the most meaningless citizens, is a prime example of what is wrong in this country today.

I could be tv critic.Just say this sucks...that sucks...this other show over here sucks. And seeings as how it's tv, I'd be mostly correct.

Criticism is your business. Your comments allow some to rethink first impressions and others who did not see the show, draft a mental impression. Clearly, you are tough of Gervais, with one exception, his closing comment was bitterly awkward and darkly un-humorous.

I don't think we watched the same show. Gervais was tamer than last year, but still quite funny.

He wasn't too mean last year. When an industry spends o much time and money congratulating itself, you need to humble them a bit. This year, the host wasn't too mean. He was just too absent.

Good for you Gudrun. I'm not watching next year as I've decided I should make better use of my time. All the dresses can be seen on DM and HP and I see so few of the movies that I could care less about who wins.

This years Golden Globes was a good show. However, there will never be in the history of Tv a show that will be as funny as 2011 Golden Globes Awards. It did not seem scripted at all. It was really funny. It seemed like a complete surprise. It was extremely funny when Ricky Gervias was roasting Robert Downy Junior. They should relase a tape of the 2010 and 2011 Golden Globes on DVD. They were something that needs to watched and not forgotten about.

Gervais was hit and miss this year, but I agree the show was EXTREMELY boring. I was expecting the celebs to be much more punchy and ready to fire back at Gervais. More ready than ever to just let lose and have fun. Instead, they seemed to go the other direction and be even more stuffy and full of themselves just to spite the jokes they knew Gervais would be doing.

Man, it was boring. I taped it so I could watch it later and fast forward through commercials and overly long speeches and still couldn't finish the final hour.

I think they figured out the best way to not have him asked back was not to react.

The recession comment appears to have gone straight over Maureen's head.

Does anyone know what Gervais said while introducing Banderos & Hayek? It got bleeped. And how about a translation of Antonio's response.

What the heck is with Madonna trying to sound English?
She was so busy stumbling over her tortured diction her couldn't get her words out.

Meryl Streep she ain't.
