Best moments: Laura Linney’s comment calling the founding fathers community organizers. Tommy Smothers’s speech. Paul Giamatti’s flusteredness. Oh and Ricky Gervais, Ricky Gervais, Ricky Gervais. As many people have already suggested, he should host next year. And forever
Not so good moments: Cutting off the director (writer?) of John Adams. The opening. Danny Strong not winning for writing. A certain actresses arms (I feel catty enough saying it, I can’t say who, but if you were watching you know who I’m talking about). Josh Groban.
