How can Ricky Gervais follow up his wild Golden Globes hosting gig? By playing himself in an awards-themed episode of The Simpsons, called “Angry Dad: The Movie.”
The King’s Speech may be sweeping the real-life awards, but on The Simpsons Bart’s movie about Homer wins a Golden Globe, then picks up more and more awards, with Homer hogging the podium every time. How can Bart avoid a debacle on Oscar night? (I’ll bet Colin Firth doesn’t have this problem.)
Besides Gervais, Russell Brand and Hallie Berry play themselves.
The Simpsons is always terrific at movie satire – their Sundance episode is a classic – and I wouldn’t miss this one (Sunday, 8 ET on Fox) .
