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.

Ricky Gervais just gave the best opening speech at the #GoldenGlobes
ever. He absolutely DESTROYED Hollywood.
Ricky Gervais lives to shred the Hollywood elite. He’s done it for years, and he did it again on Sunday night at the Golden Globes in Beverly Hills.
“Let’s have a laugh — at your expense,” he told the gathered gaggle of celebrities. “Remember, they’re just jokes, we’re all gonna’ die soon, and there’s no sequel.”

So all of y’all pretend to do things that normal people do on a daily basis. you pretend for a living and I don’t actually know how to do anything, yet you want to tell us what you think and insert you were expert opinion on nothing
What a nice way of telling a bunch of blowhards to accept the award for doing the job they are paid very well to do and keep their political views to themselves.
Hope his next gig includes lawyers & politicians…
While Hollywood stars, some anyway, get carried away with their politics, let’s not forget the hundreds of millions they raise for charities every year. So they practice a little self-indulgence on these awards shows…so what.
Judge, you’ve got to be kidding. This hatred towards President Trump has been well orchestrated in Hollywood. Sure they give donations, which if I may remind you is all tax deductible. These play actors don’t give a sh+t about you and I, they believe they know much better than us. Thankfully many of hollywoodites will end up in Gitmo for child trafficking and pedophlia, if not Treason. You can take that to the bank.
