Producer-director Judd Apatow took a few swipes at recent Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais during his own awards hosting gig Saturday night. At the Producers Guild of America Awards, Apatow, in a profanity-laced bit, noted: "Apparently, you can do this job wrong. And it can affect your whole career. 
What did you think of Ricky Gervais? I didn't like it. I thought it was mean. The 'Lost' joke about the fat guy eating everyone, Ricky Gervais just lost weight. Right now, he's 4 pounds away from being able to make that joke.

"He started out with Charlie Sheen," Apatow continued on Gervais. "Which I enjoyed when Leno did it last week."
