Meryl wasn’t going to out Weinstein. Her career benefitted way too much from him. He was pretty much the first person she thanked at all of her acceptance speeches.

this is exactly what Gervais was referring to...the me-first approach to the world. Can't believe so many so-called liberals are mad about the speech. You don't have to be a conservative to see the hypocrisy he described.

I don't think many are. Most probably expected this to happen and reacted the way they were suppose to. I see far more on the right talking about how great his "rant" was and less on the left being triggered.

It was just a comedy roast that's quite common at award shows. Its why people like him are even hired.

I think this is why i am a bit more cynical at it. Yeah, a lot of his jabs are valid critiques, and maybe cathartic on one level, but on the other hand, this is wasnt a great drop the mic and expose the establishment moment. It was Gervias being hired by a Hollywood institution to put on this exact kind of show. (It doesn't help that from what i can tell, Gervias is also one of those "kids these days have ruined comedy" kind of comedians)

My main movie board has practically 0 conservatives, and the general response to the Ricky Gervais bit was approval. But as it was a thread about the awards season in general, his name got precisely 7 mentions and then everyone went back to talking about awards ceremonies, because he's just saying things that everyone already knows and there's no real meat there.

I dont have an issue with his speech, its just topics like always highlight the ironic presence of conservatives on this board.

Is it that unthinkable to you that conservatives and liberals might actually agree on something?

before the show i saw a bingo card about gervais. within thirty seconds you probably could have bingo'd. things i remember specifically:

  • he's drinking a beer at the podium
  • he says something akin to "i offend people with my jokes"
  • makes joke about NBC hiring him
  • says something about not caring if he hurts your feelings
you get the idea. his schtick is just played out. fey and poehler are funnier. wish the oscars would bring back hugh jackman though. hands down the greatest hosting gig of any awards show ever.

It was right on the money. Great to see someone tell the racist, segregated f***s in Hollywood the truth to their face.
