The Complete List of Everyone Ricky Gervais (Probably) Offended at the Golden Globes
No one is safe. Not even J. Law
As we all – including Ricky Gervais himself – know, the witty host offended just a few people at this year’s Golden Globes.
But just because we expected it doesn’t mean it’s not fun to reminisce about the night’s big zingers – shall we?
“It’s right that NBC host this award show, because they’re the only network who are truly fair and impartial. And that’s because they’re the only network with zero nominations. Nothing in it for them tonight. They don’t care.”
Not even giving Gervais the Golden Globe hosting gig for the fourth time will save NBC from being the target of his one-liners.
2. Caitlyn Jenner
“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. You can’t do everything.”
Car crashes and award shows just go hand in hand, don’t they?
3. Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Jennifer Garner
“He’s also the only person who Ben Affleck hasn’t been unfaithful to. Please welcome, Matt Damon!”
The time you want your friend’s rumored transgressions brought up on live TV? Well, never, but least of all, right before you’re about to present at the Golden Globes.
4. Film production companies, in general
“One Hollywood publication said that me hosting would mean that some film stars would stay away. For fear of being made fun of. As if film stars would stay away from the chance of winning a Golden Globe, particular if their film company has already paid for it.”
This one made for some rather awkward reaction shots.
5. Jeffrey Tambor
“What a year he’s had What an actor, what a role. Everyday he has to put on all the women’s clothes and the hair and makeup and let people film it. That takes balls. So I don’t know how he does it. I really don’t. I’ve seen his balls they’re huge and long.”
What did Jeffrey Tambor ever do to you, Ricky?!
6. Jennifer Lawrence
“Jennifer Lawrence made the news when she demanded equal pay for women in Hollywood and 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?!”
Since she’s sitting at the same table as Amy Schumer, J.Law was probably laughing too hard to even hear this one.
7. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill
“On a serious note, the Golden Globes are about excellence. To win one you have to do something amazing. Neither of our first two presenters have one though. I don’t know what they’re doing here really. I don’t choose the guests. Please welcome the fantastic Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill.”
Luckily, we think these two can take a joke.
8. America Ferrera and Eva Longoria
“They’re two people your future president, Donald Trump, can’t wait to deport.”
Nothing like a Trump joke to make people uncomfortable.
9. Charlie Sheen
“Joy and Trainwreck. Not the names of Charlie Sheen’s two favorite hookers.”
He might have had that one coming
10. Lorenzo Soria, President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association
“The Golden Globes doesn’t have an in memoriam section to get you all depressed, instead we let the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press say a few words. Please welcome Lorenzo Soria.”
C’mon Ricky, it’s his show!
11. Mel Gibson
“I want to say something nice about Mel before he comes out. I’d rather have a drink with him in his hotel room tonight, than with Bill Cosby. Please welcome, Mel Gibson.”
After that comment, we’re guessing that the bad blood between these two isn’t going away anytime soon – though Gibson did hit the stage with arms wide open.
