Ricky Gervais mocht vannacht voor de vijfde maal gastheer spelen van de Golden Globes. Hij heeft er ondertussen zo’n hekel aan dat het de rode draad is geworden in zijn openingsspeech.
Geniet van Gervais. Geniet niet met mate.
Het censuurdepartement van NBC zat in aanslag met de vinger op het censuurknopje en tijdens de eerste 7 minuten werd de microfoon van Gervais tweemaal afgezet.
Enkele one-liners van Ricky Gervais vannacht:
(Spreekt tegen de sterren in de zaal:)…..So 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. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your god, and fuck off.
The Irishman was amazing. Long, but amazing. It wasn’t the only epic movie. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, nearly three hours long. Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere, and by the end, his date was too old for him. Even Prince Andrew’s like, “Come on, Leo, mate. You’re nearly 50, son.”
This is the last time I’m hosting these awards. I don’t care anymore. I’m joking: I never did. NBC clearly don’t care either. Kevin Hart was fired from the Oscars because of some offensive tweets. Lucky for me, the Hollywood Foreign Press can barely speak English, and they’ve no idea what Twitter is. I got offered this gig by fax.
It was a big year for pedophile movies. Surviving R Kelly. Leaving Neverland….. The Two Popes.
Nobody cares about movies anymore. No one goes to the cinema, no one really watches network TV. Everyone’s watching Netflix. This show should just be me coming out going “Well done, Netflix. You win—everything.” But no, we’ve got to drag it out for three hours. You could binge watch the entire first season of After Life 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 2 is on the way, so in the end, he obviously didn’t kill himself. Just like Jeffrey Epstein.
