In the words of Ricky Gervais, “The Golden Globes are to the Oscars like Kim Kardashian is to Kate Middleton, bit louder, bit drunker, bit trashier, and more easily bought. Allegedly. Nothing’s been proved.” That was pretty much the host’s theme for the entire evening.

Apparently, as Gervais pointed out, the more ridiculous and degrading he is of his fellow actors, the more likely the Golden Globes will ask him to come back for more.

So, let’s compare. If cracking jokes about Charlie Sheen partying with a porn star in 2011 got him to come back for this year’s show, perhaps referencing Jodie Foster’s Beaver will get him back for next. That is, if you think his newest speech was better than last year’s.
