Felicity Huffman, Cats, Joe Pesci, the Catholic Church, Judi Dench and James Corden got the Ricky Gervais treatment during the opening monologue of tonights Golden Globe Awards, but none took the brunt of the hosts jibes quite as sharply as Hollywood itself.
Casting the industry town as hypocritically woke with a Jeffrey Epstein joke thrown in for good measure the notoriously scathing British comic advised Golden Globe winners to skip the moralizing. Said Gervais, Thank your agent and your God and The rest was bleeped, but he seemed to say something along the lines of then get the [expletive] off the stage.
Youre in no position to lecture the public about anything, Gervais cautioned. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg.
Apple TVs woke The Morning Show, Gervais said, was made by a company that runs sweat shops in China.
Individual stars didnt get through the opening monologue completely unscathed, if none were as skewered quite so efficiently as Gervais former punching bag Mel Gibson. Felicity Huffman, Gervais said, made the license plate on his car, Joe Pesci looks like Baby Yoda

That's going to leave a mark.
Found a bootleg stream just to see the opening. Was worth it! I even heard an Epstine joke, but didnt get the whole context.
This cheered me up.
He probably doesn’t believe in much that we do but tonight that doesn’t matter.
Somebody at least hit back.
HE WAS F...G AWESOME...REALLY NAILED THEM..EPSTEIN JOKES..
According to another post, he basically said Epstein didnt kill himself, the audience groaned, and he said, Sorry, I know he was friends with most of you.
The audience DID NOT look amused!
They all looked angry.. he told them you know notbing about the real world!
i put up a pic of reaction of tom hanks in my thread
Alysa Milano was heard to exclaim: "HOW DARE YOU?!?"
Can’t wait until the video is up...
Pompous asses. They couldn’t even take a joke :)
And most are thinking “we’ll i’ve got my WOKE speech written already so im saying it!”
Get ready for some woketacular speechifyin’!
I had to call a friend at the end speech because I couldn’t believe the words coming out of his mouth.
People in the audience looked pissed. Here is a link to the livestream of the show. Skip over all the Red Carpet interview to the beginning of the show.
@rickygervais: In the end, he obviously didnt kill himself, just like Jeffrey Epstein.
*Hollywood audience groans*
Shut up. I know hes your friend, but I dont care. Youll have to make your own way here in your own plane.
See post 16.
Gervais, the pompous atheist calling anyone out for anything? That is rich! He is a proud pompous jackass with no class and no taste for anything worthwhile in life. He is a perfect match for the clowns he associates with.
