Ricky Gervais uses Golden Globes monologue to roast all-things Hollywood


-Hello, and welcome to the 77th
annual Golden Globe Awards, live from The Beverly Hilton
hotel here in Los Angeles. I’m Ricky Gervais.
Thank you. You’ll be pleased to know this
is the last time I’m hosting these awards,
so I don’t care anymore. I’m joking.
I never did. Let’s go out with a bang. Let’s have a laugh
at your expense, shall we? Remember, they’re just jokes. We’re all gonna die soon,
and there’s no sequel. I came here in a limo tonight, and the license plate was made
by Felicity Huffman. So — no. Shush. It’s her daughter
I feel sorry for, okay? That must be the most
embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to her,
and her dad was in “Wild Hogs.” No one 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.
Good night.” You could binge-watch the entire
first season of “After Life” instead of watching this show. Spoiler alert —
season 2 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. It was a big year
for pedophile movies. “Surviving R.
Kelly,” “Leaving Neverland,”
“Two Popes.” Shut up, shut up. I don’t care, I don’t care. “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. Oh.
Many talented people of color were snubbed
in major categories. Unfortunately, there’s nothing
we can do about that. The Hollywood Foreign Press
are all very, very racist, so — We were gonna do
an in memoriam this year, but when I saw the list
of people that had died, it wasn’t diverse enough. It just — no. Apple roared into the TV game with “The Morning Show,”
a superb drama. Yeah. A superb drama about
the importance of dignity and doing the right thing, made by a company
that runs sweatshops in China. So, well, you say you’re woke, but the companies you work
for — I mean, unbelievable. 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, right? 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, right, come up,
accept your little award, thank your agent and your god,
and — So, it’s already three hours
long.
