Ricky Gervais Tells Hollywood to “F*** Off” in Expletive-Filled Golden Globes Monologue
January 5, 2020
The ‘Office’ creator also took shots at Felicity Huffman and Jeffrey Epstein.
Once again, Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais did not shy away from hot-button topics in his monologue, even as he told the stars attending on Sunday not to elongate their acceptance speeches by referring to contentious current events.
At the top of the annual ceremony at the Beverly Hilton, Gervais ended his monologue by telling the stars at the ceremony: “So if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a political platform to make a political speech. 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. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God and fuck off. OK?”
Gervais’ swear word was bleeped out on NBC. He was also bleeped for his use of profanity in two other separate jokes: one where he called Cats‘ James Corden a “fat pussy” and another where he discussed the same film’s Judi Dench “licking her ass.”
The comedian, however, also peppered the monologue with references to #MeToo and contemporary issues. He started off by noting that it was his fifth time hosting, and therefore he didn’t care what flak he would take. Then he punched in with a nod to last year’s college admissions scandal: “I came here in a limo tonight and the license plate was made by Felicity Huffman,” he said, referring to the actress’ prison sentence.
