On Sunday night, comedian Ricky Gervais exposed Hollywood in brutal fashion — their pretensions and their cruelties, their hypocrisy and their greed. It was a dazzling exhibition. And it was made even more dazzling by the obvious and insufferable inability of the Great Faces of Celebrity™ to even act as though they could laugh at themselves for a solitary moment.

No sacred cow was off limits. Gervais sideswiped Felicity Huffman, the perpetrator of a scam to defraud colleges: “I came here in a limo tonight and the license plate was made by Felicity Huffman.” He went after the top Hollywood executives, who were “all terrified of Ronan Farrow. He’s coming for you, he’s coming for you.”
