Mad Quotes From Ricky Gervais's Golden Globe Hosting
Ricky Gervais was at it again, taking aim at the big names in Hollywood during his duties as the host of the recent Golden Globe Awards.
Although some felt it offensive, others felt that Gervais hit the mark with his on target humor. Hottie Ryan Gosling had this to say about the opening jokes, "I'm a huge Ricky Gervais fan. That's why they want him here, he keeps it honest." Some of the British comedian's quotes were stinging to say the least, but also very funny.
-"Talking of the walking dead, congratulations to Hugh Hefner, who is getting married at age 84 to 24-year-old beauty Crystal Harris. When asked why she was marrying him, she said, 'He lied about his age. He told me he was 94'. Just don't look at it when you touch it."
-"It was a big year for 3D movies. Toy Story, Despicable Me, Tron. It seemed like everything this year was three-dimensional. Except the characters in The Tourist."
-"It's going to be a night of partying and heavy drinking. Or as Charlie Sheen calls it: breakfast."
-"Also not nominated, I Love You Phillip Morris. Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor, two heterosexual actors pretending to be gay... so the complete opposite of some famous Scientologists, then. My lawyers helped with that joke."
-"Next up, Eva Longoria has the daunting task of introducing the President of the Hollywood Foreign Press. That's nothing, I just had to help him off the toilet and pop his teeth in."
-“The next presenter is a true Hollywood icon. In ten of the biggest blockbusters of all time, he has shown his extraordinary acting versatility. He has played a boxer … and Rambo. Please welcome Sylvester Stallone!”
-“He was a jobbing actor, career not going that well if I’m being perfectly honest, who got his big break when I cast him in a show called The Office. He is now leaving that show, and killing a cash cow for both of us. Please welcome the wonderful Tina Fey, and the ungrateful Steve Carell!”
Harvey Weinstein said he'd make sure that he would never work again, while Al Pacino loved him saying, “He’s a comic, so he’s going to go for it. He’s letting it go. The only thing he can really get to is his own wit. You don’t know what they’re going to say! I think it’s worth it.”
However you slice it, it was entertaining. It looks doubtful, however, that he will return next year for an encore.
