10) Ricky Gervais made jokes that were both offensive and off-color, and HIGHLARIOUS! The jab at Steve Carell for departing The Office had me giggling, as did Carell’s reaction. The joke about certain closeted Scientologists made me hide under my blanket. I’d make a beeline for LAX after the show wraps, sir.
9) Sandra Bullock‘s bangs. And her Jenny Packham dress.
8 Chris Colfer‘s win for Best Supporting Actor In A Musical/Miniseries/Comedy was such a pleasant surprise. And what’s even better is that Colfer recently confessed that his mother walked in on him rehearsing an acceptance speech in the bathroom. Dreams come true. Just sing a song and dreams come true.
7) Christian Bale‘s win for Best Supporting Actor In A Motion Picture-Drama. I called it. FACE! No one nails a Masshole accent like that and walks away empty-handed.
6) Robert Downey Jr.‘s dialogue about sleeping with loads of actresses. An inside joke, perhaps? Oh, the industry. We’re all so thin and pretty and rich. Ha!
5) When the music starts to play during an acceptance speech, indicating that it’s time to WRAP. IT. UP. The winner gets a little panicked, and starts to talk louder ANDFASTERUNTILTHEYJUSTGETREALLYEXCITEDANDYIPPY!
4) Rick Gervais stated the obvious: No one cares about the foreign film nominations, so give us something interesting/attractive to stare at in the meantime. Or at least leave us with a riddle to ponder while they ramble on.
3) Katey Segal. She has seriously turned it around since the days of Married…With Children and Smart House.
2) Colin Firth‘s win for Best Actor In A Motion Picture-Drama. Mark Darcy won and the British monarchy is amazing. An Oscar would suit you well, sir.
1) My friend thought Ricky Gervais was fired halfway through the ceremony for his totally inappropriate jokes. She hadn’t seen Gervais for a long period of time during the broadcast and feared he was sent packing.
Extra Point-I also called that Melissa Leo would win Best Supporting Actress for being totally AWESOME in The Fighter. HFPA, gimme a jingle next year before you vote.
