Re: What did people think of Ricky Gervais hosting the Golden Globes?
The stereotype is that Anericans are straight talking and ruder than diffident, polite Brits.
Yet often my experience has been the opposite, American tourists ive encountered seem very polite, while I think Brits are more willing to talk straight.
American TV is evidence of this, Simon Cowell started a wave of Brits on US TV, who would say things their American counterparts wouldn't.
So often when Hollywood stars appear on British talkshows, they are shocked/delighted by what you can get away with in comparison to America.
I think Britain is a more cynical country than America, sometimes that's a good thing sometimes not.
Gervais did a good job, and was generally funny. I like the way he cut through the cosy mutual admiration that hangs over such occasions.
