    ¿What are those critics talking about? Ricky Gervais is the best host these ceremonies can have, and it's speech was absolutely hilarious and brave. By the faces you could see who has sense of humor in that room. The awards were okay but Al Pacino deserved to win for The irishman, not Brad.

    All jokes eventually run their course. And Gervais’s committed but thin performance was like the worst sort of Hollywood sequel: brimming with quips and callbacks, lacking anything new or daring.

    None of Gervais’s jokes were as cutting as, say, when Sacha Baron-Cohen likened Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to the protagonist of “Jojo Rabbit” (“a naïve, misguided child who spreads Nazi propaganda and only has imaginary friends”). ... The microclimate in the room for the night was breezy with patches of sincerity. ... But the room truly came together for the Cecil B. DeMille award speech from Tom Hanks.

    It was two shows in one. For the most part, the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards on NBC was a better-than-average awards show, with surprise winners, humorous touches and some heartfelt speeches. But then there was that other show, the one with Ricky Gervais as the supposed host of the festivities. ... [Gervais] came off like the guy sitting at the back of the auditorium who’s had one too many, and keeps yelling out unfunny, sarcastic remarks.
