The 67th Golden Globes - Um, Why is this important again?

What a strange night - I heard Ricky Gervais would be hosting the 1 award show that never has a host. I wasn't worried, but I should have been. Awk. Ward. The whole show had a strange vibe - I'm thinking that the celebs were conscious of the crisis in Haiti, and had to reconcile a night of glitz and glamour amidst the turmoil happening a world away. Nevertheless, the show marched on, and Gervais managed to go from Hero to Zero in the space of 5 minutes. I love dry British wit as much as the next blokette, but wow..some of his "zingers" landed with a thud. And it only got worse. Moreover, some of the celebs presenting let him know it, calling him "shameless," among other things. Also, everyone presenting seemed to be having trouble with the teleprompter. Seriously, stuttering, squinting, pausing...What was going on? There were surprises, and expectations, as well as wonderful heartfelt speeches and salutes (I'm talking about you, Ms. Barrymore!) The winners appear in RED. Please check out my GG predictions in the 2009 section. Thanks!
