The moment we have all been waiting for…..Ricky Gervais’ opening (and best bits) for the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards (video below).
Gervais opened by comparing the saying 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. Yikes.
Gervais even made fun of himself saying, “If I cause any controversy, I will be invited back next year.”
One topic the Hollywood Foreign Press refused to allow our favorite host talk about was Mel Gibson. Of course, this lead to a joke about Gibson’s last movie he starred in with Jodi Foster, The Beaver and a whole bunch of references to Foster’s “beaver”. Foster was quite the sport and just smiled and laughed.
As Have U Heard speculated, Kim Kardashian’s 72 day marriage was referred to saying “a marriage that lasts 72 days….I’ve sat through longer movies.”
Let’s not forget Justin Bieber’s paternity scandal. Gervais said what millions of people were thinking, ‘the only way he could have impregnated a woman is with a turkey baster.’
Before introducing Johnny Depp, Gervais asked him a question, “Are you using recreational drugs? No really….Have you seen The Tourist yet?
Gervais was funny but not nearly as shocking as expected. What are your thoughts?
