Worst: Ricky Gervais' Banal Banter

You can always count on Ricky Gervais to show up at an awards show and make slightly uncomfortable jokes at the audience's — and his own — expense. Which is exactly the problem with the former Golden Globes host: The shtick is starting to feel a little old. This time, Gervais referenced his Emmy losses (he's been nominated a whopping 22 times, but only won twice), demanded, and then, hoisted a real statuette, and exhorted viewers to Tweet photos of him holding it. It was funny, sure, but we'd love to see him do something different next time. AP
