Whenever Ricky Gervais takes the stand at the Golden Globes, you know you are in for some Zingers! A particularly nasty burn at the end of the monologue seemed to make the whole room uncomfortable. 

“So if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a political platform to make a political speech,” Gervais started before going for the TKO. 

“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. OK?”

Ouch! 

In his fifth time hosting the prestigious awards, nothing was off the table. Everything from Ronan Farrow’s Harvey Weinstein expose to Felicity Huffman’s 14-day prison sentence was fair game. 

“Spoiler alert, there’s a season two, so in the end, he didn’t kill himself. Just like Jeffrey Epstein. Sorry, I know he’s your friend,” Gervais joked to the A-list audience. 

The comedian also had a few choice words for Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO who was in attendance.

He called out the Irony of a #MeToo themed show on Apple TV+, he noted that the show was “a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing, made by a company that runs sweatshops in China”. 

Of course, it was all in good fun as he reminded the stars that “they’re just jokes; we’re all gonna die soon, and there’s no sequel.”

Gervais also told the audience that this would be “the last time I’m hosting these awards, so I don’t care anymore. I’m joking. I never did. NBC clearly don’t care either — fifth time.“
