Ricky Gervais will take the stage tonight at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills.
But not before getting a grilling on last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live.
In an hilarious skit, SNL poked fun at the English comedian, producer and host’s ‘self obsession’ and mean spirited brand of humour with Jason Sudeikis pulling off a side-splitting, witty Gervais impression.

Daniel Radcliffe hosted last night’s episode of SNL and had a dog gone good time as he pulled off a bit about Casey Anthony’s new pooch on Weekend Update.
The Harry Potter star appeared as Anthony’s recently adopted dog, a Yorkshire Terrier, for an interview with Update anchor Seth Meyers.
Dressed up in a terrier-style wig, Radcliffe suggested the doggie adoption agency that supplied the pet needs to tighten up its screening process.

He joked that they should have told Casey that they ‘were out of dogs.’
The unfortunate pet also revealed: ‘When I go to the dog park, none of the other dogs will play with me because of Casey’s background.’
The skit was a take on one of Casey’s recently released videos where she revealed she’s adopted a puppy.

What a wizard: Daniel schools the SNL cast on the Harry Potter films
That wasn’t Daniel’s only light hearted moment, as the star hosted the show and delivered a personal message to Potter fans.
He said to the films’ young fans: ‘Your enthusiasm was the real magic, and I so enjoyed being on the journey with you.’
And to the adults, Radcliffe pointed out: ‘Those books were for children. You were reading children’s books.’
The host with the most: Daniel drew lots of laughs during his hosting stint
The 22-year-old English actor also took aim at the different people who’ve played Harry Potter on SNL including Bill Hader, Hugh Jackman, and funny woman Rachel Dratch.
Daniel asked that the show retire its Harry Potter-themed sketches, but behind him were the ‘Jersey Shore Hogwarts,’ featuring Snooki played by Bobby Moynihan and Hader taking on The Situation.
While Radcliffe received relatively good reviews from fans and arm chair critics alike, the show’s musical guest Lana Del Ray wasn’t so lucky.
Low note: Internet sensation Lana Del Rey drew a chorus of criticsm for her lacklustre musical performance
Fans and celebrities fired a barrage of shots at the internet singing sensation who describes herself as a ‘gangsta Nancy Sinatra.’
Comments about the 25-year-old American performer zeroed in on her lacklustre performances of the songs Video Games and Blue Jeans.
‘Wow watching this “singer” on SNL is like watching a 12 yearold in their bedroom when they’re pretending to sing and perform. #signofourtimes,’ tweeted actress/singer Juliette Lewis.
Not her finest moment: Lana was clearly nervous and faced a sea of criticism from celebrities and SNL fans
Although the tweet was quickly taken down.
Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton also chimed in tweeting: ‘Just watched SNL. Not only was @LanaDelRey vocally WAY off, but watching her utter lack of stage presence was cringe-worthy.’
While Twitter user Matt Dentler wrote: ‘Lana Del Rey definitely missed a few notes on “Video Games.” Might be awhile until SNL books such a newbie.’
Del Rey landed a coveted spot on the SNL stage before even releasing her début CD.
The Born to Die album isn’t due out until later this month, but the New York native had created a lot of on-line buzz after posting a video of her song, Video Games.
