Ricky Gervais has hosted the Golden Globe Awards four times and there’s a reason he keeps being asked back. He’s funny, sarcastic, biting, and most importantly, is unafraid to go after the Hollywood elite. He delivered on Sunday, and here are some of his best line that weren’t bleeped out. (That’s another story. There were so much bleeped out you wonder what you missed watching at home).
Here’s a sampling:
“I’m going to be nice tonight. I’ve changed — not as much as Bruce Jenner.”
Now Caitlyn Jenner, of course. What a year she’s had! She became a role model for trans people everywhere, showing great bravery in breaking down barriers and destroying stereotypes. She didn’t do a lot for women drivers. But you can’t have everything, can you? Not at the same time.
“Remember if you do win tonight, no one cares about that award as much as you do. Don’t get emotional, it’s embarrassing. That award is, no offense, worthless. It’s a bit of metal some nice old confused journalists wanted to give you in person so they could meet you and have a selfie with you, okay? That’s all it is!”
When discussing the movies Joy and Trainwreck, he said: “No, not the names of Charlie Sheen’s favorite hookers. The movies of these next two presenters.”
He introduced Eva Longoria and America Ferrera by saying: “Two people who your future president, Donald Trump, can’t wait to deport.”Advertisement
“Our next presenter is the most respected actor in the room. That isn’t saying much, Please welcome Morgan Freeman.”
For his part, Gervais seemed to relish in making people uncomfortable.
