Relive Every Joke From Ricky Gervais’ Opening Monologue At The Golden Globes
Ricky Gervais returned to host his fourth Golden Globe Awards with guns blazing! Let’s face it, many of us tune-in to hear how cruel and offensive the host(s) can be to our favorite actors.
Gervais approached the podium with a beer in hand and immediately started throwing jabs at Sean Penn, Caitlyn Jenner and many others. The British comic wasn’t shy about his feelings on Ben Affleck’s infidelity or Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s history of adoptions either.
He received a nice reception while praising Jennifer Lawrence for speaking out on equal pay for women in Hollywood. It was a nice segue to his next joke about the all female casts for Ghostbusters and Oceans 11: “This is brilliant for the studios because they get guaranteed box-office results and they don’t have to spend on the cast.”
Which celebrity burn was your favorite? Let us know in the comments section below.
Do people not realise that when they say they are offended by a joke it makes that joke even funnier for the rest of us.
