Ricky Gervais was the host of the 67th annual Golden Globes awards last night, I know you probably already knew that, but did you know how awesome he was as the host? Well he did a great job and I have Ricky Gervais’s Golden Globes monologue video to prove it.
There was nothing off limits to Gervais last night and the audience was eating it up. His opening monologue alone was full of great one liners, such as “when children in third world countries see Angelina Jolie they think Mommy” and “I better wrap this up before NBC replaces me with Jay Leno.” Good stuff I tell you, especially when Ricky was talking about being on The British version of the office. I could tell you all about it but it is hysterical so watch the Ricky Gervais Golden Globes video below. You will not want to miss his bit with Steve Carrell, priceless.
Gervais delivered his one liners with ease like the true comedian he is. I certainly am not surprised that Ricky hit it out of the park as the Golden Globes host. He doesn’t mind pushing the envelope at all, I mean he even made fun of Paul McCartney’s divorce from Heather Mills. Sir Paul tried his best to cover his true feelings about the joke but he didn’t really look that thrilled. My personal favorite part of the evening was with a beer in hand, or at least what looked like a beer in hand, Ricky Gervais made this comment about Mel Gibson” ‘I like a drink as much as the next man unless the next man is Mel Gibson.’
I am betting that there are some critics out there that are not too pleased with Gervais’ hosting duties, but I thought he rocked. It seems that the awards season has kicked off in style and that definitely had to do with Ricky, well at least part of it did.
