The Golden Globes ceremony was held yesterday night and for the third time it was the British comedian Ricky Gervais who hosted the evening and started his opening monologue like this: “The Golden Globes are just like the Oscars, but without all the esteem.” But this year the scores of stars on hand at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, from Steven Spielberg to Meryl Streep to Brad and Angelina, got a less acidic host and had great fun listening to Gervais’s opening speech. Later the show did see some worthy winners in television: our favorite ‘Homeland‘ series – Showtime‘s look at terrorist conspiracy on U.S. soil, won best TV drama, and its lead, Claire Danes, won her third Globe. The ABC comic gem ‘Modern Family‘ won for best TV comedy or musical. And then there was also room for Madonna, who got an award for the best original song “Masterpice” from the movie ‘W.E.’ – just some days before her new album M.D.N.A. will see the light of day. Enjoy the Gervais’ opening monologue in full glory below:
