Ricky Gervais Roasts Hollywood In Golden Globes Monologue

Ricky Gervais Roasts Hollywood In Golden Globes Monologue

Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globes on Sunday night for the fifth, and what he said will be the final time.

He took the opportunity to rip many of Hollywood's biggest names.

"The Irishman was amazing, long, but amazing," said Gervais in his opening monologue.

"It wasn't the only epic movie: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, nearly three hours long; Leonard Di Caprio 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, son'."

He also made a joke about Jeffrey Epstein's death with a punchline aimed at the room.

You could binge-watch the entire first season of Afterlife instead of watching this show.

That's a show about a man who wants to kill himself because his wife dies of cancer and it's still more fun than this.

Spoiler alert: season two is on the way. So, in the end, he obviously didn't kill himself, just like Jeffrey Epstein.

Shut up! I know he's your friend but I don't care. You had to make your own way here in your own plane, didn't you?

The finale had a message for everyone in the audience.

"Apple roared into the TV game with 'Morning Show', a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing, made by a company that runs sweatshops in China," said Gervais.

"You say you're woke but the companies you work for: Apple, Amazon, Disney. If Isis started a streaming service, you'd call your agent.

"If you do win an award tonight, don't use it as a 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. If you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your god, and fuck off."
