Ricky Gervais' Golden Globes Opening — Hilarious or Harsh?

Ricky Gervais opened the Golden Globes with a little stand-up routine. As expected, no one was safe from his brutal honesty: he trashed Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp's The Tourist, made cracks about Hugh Hefner, and even poked fun at Lost's Hurley's weight. The British comedian certainly didn't hold back, and his opening act included a jab at Scientology. Gervais surely left some audience members bemused and others offended, but what did you think of his opening — hilarious or too harsh?
