Host With the Most: The 10 Best Ricky Gervais Jokes That Stuck the Landing at the 2020 Golden Globes

Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globes for the fifth time last night, promising to everyone in attendance that this would be his last appearance as master of ceremonies. Using his departure as a foil, he spent the first eight minutes of the show roasting a smattering of celebrities, failed movies, and the Hollywood Foreign Press. And while he kept it mostly on the up-and-up, there were one or two (or three) shots below the belt. As a Golden Globe swan song, it may not have been the grand finale we’d all hoped for, but his brash, devil-may-care take on Hollywood culture had the A-listers rolling in their seats. When most prime-time hosts play it safer than a beekeeper with a honey allergy, Gervais strolled into the Hollywood lion’s den and let the whip fly. Let’s take a look at the 10 best jokes that really stuck the landing.
