The last time Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globes, Harvey Weinstein joked afterwards (maybe, who can be sure, really?) that he would have him killed. But last night, it was Harvey who was throwing his head back in a close-up, laughing at this joke: “One Hollywood publication said that me hosting would mean that some film star would stay away for fear of being made fun of. Full Story
