"True to form, five-time Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais kicked off the 77th annual ceremony with a round of roasts and skewers. After stating his intent never to host again, he gestured to the celebrity-filled audience in the room with him and kicked things off with, “Let’s go out with a bang — let’s have a laugh at your expense, shall we?”
Gervais was as good as his word. Wielding a defensive stance at the outset, he burned the room full of celebrities on a range of issues both personal and political, targeting everything from director Martin Scorsese’s height to actress Felicity Huffman’s jail sentence. Several actors were visibly uncomfortable, including Tom Hanks, who looked on in bafflement for much of the monologue, and Jonathan Pryce, one half of The Two Popes, who was grim and unsmiling when Gervais turned his film into the punchline of a pedophilia joke.
“No, shush,” he silenced the crowd at several points when audience members audibly protested, feigning exhausted scorn. “I don’t care anymore!”"
