Slip the word "Gervais" into that handy little thing called Google, and you'll be hit with a wave of drama. Some of it's true -- as those who watched Sunday's Golden Globes ceremony well know -- but for the most part, it's been GervaisGate, with a whole slew of hearsay, shock and awe.

At this point, it's hard to discern exactly where that line is between insinuated drama and actual drama. The only nugget we can really rely on is the fact that host Ricky Gervais didn't hop on a missile and perform a comedic kamikaze mission from out of nowhere. He knew what he wanted to do, and he made no secret about it.
