Ricky Gervais Ruffles Feathers At the Golden Globes

Ricky Gervais' pointed comments at last night Golden Globes ceremonies are getting a sharp reaction from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's President Philip Beck. The HFPA puts on the Golden Globes every year, and Mr. Beck thinks some of Mr. Gervais' remarks "crossed the line." More here from The Hollywood Reporter. More reaction concerning Mr. Gervais' remarks from elsewhere: Reuters and the Telegraph. He joked that his "lawyers helped" him with the joke about the stars of "I Love You, Philip Morris," Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor.
