Ricky Gervais had promised that his return to the ceremony will be even more naughty than the few times before, even though he had also said numerous of times that he won’t be hosting the awards any more. Anyhow, this time though, his remarks shocked all the Hollywood stars who are more used to flattery from awards hosts as the jokes were even more painful.
We picked some of his most offensive Golden Globes jokes.
On Jennifer Lawrence
‘Jennifer Lawrence made the news when she demanded equal pay for women in Hollywood. She received overwhelming support from people everywhere. There were marches on the street with nurses and factory workers saying, ‘How the hell can a 25-year-old live on $52 million?!’
On presenters and hosts
‘The Golden Globes doesn’t have an In Memoriam section to get you all depressed. Instead we let the president of HFPA say a few words.’
Oh, and that …
‘The excellent Spotlight has been nominated. Yeah. The Catholic Church are furious about the film as it it exposes that 5 percent of all their priests have repeatedly molested children and been allowed to continue to work without punishment. Roman Polanski called it ‘the best date movie ever.’
On Ben Affleck’s marriage problems
“(Matt Damon) He’s the only person Ben Affleck hasn’t been unfaithful to.”
On Caitlyn Jenner’s car accident
‘I’m going to be nice tonight. I’ve changed — not as much as Bruce Jenner. Obviously. Now Caitlyn Jenner, of course. What a year she’s had! She became a role model for trans-people everywhere, showing great bravery in breaking down barriers and destroying stereotypes. She didn’t do a lot for women drivers. But you can’t have everything, can ya? Not at the same time.’
On Brad and Angelina’s adoptions
‘When Brad and Angelina see Kevin Hart and Ken Jeong they’re gonna want to adopt them.’
This has to be the top of the night..
Introducing Mel Gibson, Gervais said ‘I’m in the awkward position of having to introduce him again. Listen, I’m sure it’s embarrassing for both of us. I blame NBC for this terrible situation. Mel blames…we know who Mel blames. Listen, I still feel a bit bad for it. Mel’s forgotten all about it apparently, that’s what drinking does. I want to say something nice about Mel before he comes out. So: I’d rather have a drink with him in his hotel room tonight than with Bill Cosby.’ After Mel had come on stage, Ricky asked him a question which was bleeped out by NBC. ‘What the f*ck does ‘sugar t*ts’ even mean?’ Mel is alleged to have said this to a police officer while being arrested for DUI.
Take a look at some of his previous jokes over the years..On cosmetic surgery
‘Looking at all the wonderful faces here today reminds me of great work that’s been done this year… by cosmetic surgeons.’
On airbrushing of Sex And The City 2
‘There were a lot of big films that didn’t get nominated. Nothing for Sex and the City 2. I was sure the Golden Globes for special effects would go to the team that airbrushed the
On Angelina Jolie
‘Actors aren’t just loved here in Hollywood, they are loved the world over. You could be in the third world and get a glimpse of a Hollywood star and it could make you feel a little bit better. You could be a little Asian child with no possessions and no money, but you could see a picture of Angelina Jolie and you’d think, ‘Mummy!’
On everyone in the ceremony
‘She made her mark in comedy this summer by defecating into a sink. Amazingly, that’s still less demeaning than what most of you have done to make it in show business.’
On Kim Kardashian
‘For any of you who don’t know, the Golden Globes are just like the Oscars, but without all that esteem. The Golden Globes are to the Oscars what Kim Kardashian is to Kate Middleton. A bit louder, a bit trashier, a bit drunker, and more easily bought. Allegedly. Nothing’s been proved.’
On Kim and James Cameron
‘What’s with all the divorces? What’s going on? Arnold and Maria, J-Lo and Mark Anthony, Ashton and Demi. Kim Kardashian and some guy no-one will remember. He wasn’t around long. 72 days. A marriage that lasted 72 days. I’ve sat through longer James Cameron acceptance speeches.’
