Ricky Gervais went in on Hollywood as host of Golden Globes (he repeated) for the fifth and last time..
Some of his best/worst digs
“Kevin Hart was fired from the Oscars for some offensive tweets … lucky for me the Hollywood Forign Press can barely speak English and they have no idea what Twitter is, so…”
“I came here in a limo tonight and the license plate was made my Felicity Huffman.”
It’s her daughter I feel sorry for. That must be the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to her. And her dad was in ‘Wild Hogs,’ so…”
Gervais then mocked the stars for their relation to the late sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein. Gervais declared that Epstein didn’t kill himself, prompting groans from the crowd.
“Shut up, he’s your friend…”
He also took a shot at Leonardo DiCaprio for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood being three hours long,
“Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere and, by the end, his date was too old for him.”
Even Prince Andrew is like, ‘Come on Leo, mate. You’re nearly 50.”
He noted that top film executives in were present,
“but they all have one thing in common: They’re all terrified of Ronan Farrow. he’s coming for you, he’s coming for you.”
Gervais concluded his scathing monologue by warning the celebrities not to make any political or “woke” statements when accepting their awards.
“You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg.
Apple roared into the TV game with ‘The Morning Show,’ a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing made by a company that runs sweatshops in China.
So you say you’re ‘woke’, but the companies you work for, Apple, Amazon, Disney… If ISIS had a streaming service you would be calling your agents.”
“Accept your award, thank your agent, thank God and fuck off.”
And he ended the broadcast by saying,
“Donate to Australia. Get drunk. Take your drugs. Fuck off. Goodnight.”
