Stephen Fry has got gummy

Maybe it's that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have ruined us for everyone else. Maybe it was because the broadcast didn't start until after the watershed, so we'd expected more bite. But Stephen Fry calling Emma Thompson "a ghastly piece of stinking offal" and describing Captain Phillips as "Saving Mr Hanks" didn't quite seem to cut it like it might have in 2002. There was the odd glimmer of the old wit: slagging off Jeff Pope's grammar, telling us he was so moved by Oprah in The Butler he nearly gave his the afternoon off. But Fry's own suggestion that Steve Coogan should take on the mantle seemed the sanest thing he said all night. »
