GLG Fresh Mp3 Friday: Golden Globes

Congratulations to Ricky Gervais for winning the award for Rudest Golden Globes Host.
Courtesy of Robert Downey Jr., his performance was best summarized as "hugely mean-spirited" with "mildly sinister undertones." Despite this year's short-comings, Gervais did snag a Golden Globe Award in 2004 for Best Actor in a TV Series Comedy for his role as "David Brent" in the BBC hit The Office. If it were up to us, we would nominate Gervais in the "Entertainer of the Year" category.
