I only saw a little bit of it (flipping channels and happened to see Mr. Gervais - I like his humor), and the little I saw, I thought was funny.
What's offensive, IMHO, is the whole general "awards season" itself... a bunch of people getting all dressed up to give each other awards and
stroke each others' egos. I really don't understand why people watch, or what they get out of it. But, I guess the same is true for a lot of the
trash on TV.
If they scrapped just one big ceremony, and all those producers, performers, attendees, etc. donated the money involved to a good cause, imagine what
could be accomplished. But for now... I guess that money is better spent on designer shoes, dresses, and after-parties.
I guess I'm off topic, though - I apologize for the rambling.
If famous people can't take a little harmless joke at their expense once in a while, they shouldn't have aspired to become famous in the first
