The FCC announced yesterday that it is going over the tape from Sunday night's Golden Globes after receiving several objections that the live awards show was offensive.

Criticizing viewers claim director Darren Aronofsky was seen (innocently) giving Mickey Rourke the finger while the "best actor" accepted his award for Aronofsky's film The Wrestler.

That, and Rourke cursed a whole lot.

"We received 18 complaints about the Golden Globes telecast," informed FCC spokeswoman Edie Herman via e-mail the LA Times.

"The commission is reviewing the matter."

A spokeswoman at NBC admitted the Aronofsky gesture did air live, however, "On the West Coast, it went to black for 2 seconds."

"Beyond that, we have no further comment."

Man, if only the NFL was allowed such video-replay leeway.
